Painful and unfunny.
27 August 2012 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Benny Rubin plays dual roles in this very unfunny film. One is a nice Jewish guy who speaks in the thickest accent I can recall--so this he could have used subtitles. If you think a guy acting ultra-ultra-Jewish is enough to carry a film, then you might like it--I just found this guy wore VERY thin. The other was 'Little Sizzer'--a play on the film "Little Caesar". The film is a Jewish version of the Edward G. Robinson movie (though in reality, Robinson was also Jewish)--with nary a joke in the entire movie. If you like lots of Yiddish, thick accents and no laughs whatsoever, then by all means watch! Otherwise, do yourself a favor and take a nap.

By the way, after seeing this Rubin film, I then saw another, "Dump Dicks". It was terrible as well, but compared to "Julius Sizzer" it was like an Oscar-winner!
