Storyline

Recounts the story of the birth of the Jewish people and the advent of monotheism on the backdrop of the last week in history of the infamous city of Sodom, the entertainment, gambling, sex and corruption capital of biblical times. A close look reveals that the biblical reality is no different than our reality today. A jungle of wheeling and dealing where its every man for himself. The father of the nation extorts God to save Lot, his relative, the evil king of Sodom proves authority will corrupt even the one righteous man in the city, Lots Wife redefines opportunism, and even the angels assigned to do justice discover that scruples are of no consequence when the heat is on.

Chgo POV: Knee-Slapping Fun
14 September 2011 | by films42See all my reviews

To Harry: Maybe it was funnier for me, stuck here in the Chicago diaspora without knowing anything about the TV version. I truly enjoyed all the silly stuff for its own sake, & for the rest of the day, every time I snuggled up to hubby & sang the sugar-sweet "Ha Echad," we both cracked up.

Dov Navon and Tal Friedman (who were so funny together in "The Schwartz Dynasty") have wonderful chemistry again as "Mr and Mrs Lot;" sad-sack Navon providing the perfect counter-weight as Friedman flies ever-higher over the top. You're probably right in suggesting that I missed some of the "local jokes," but I think anyone with a Jewish funny-bone will know more than enough.
