Believing that they can do better, they spontaneously create and record their own song on a mobile phone. Little do they know, their performance is seen by the 'UniverSong' judges and soon they are reluctantly thrown into the spotlight as Israel's next official entry. After initial reservations about their new found celebrity status, they decide to just go for it and find themselves on the road to international stardom. They embark on a flamboyant journey that brings about hilarious end results as they go head to head with the Russian entry in the 'UniverSong' final. From director Eytan Fox comes this extravagant and unashamedly entertaining Eurovision parody featuring a feel-good soundtrack provided by Babydaddy from the Scissor Sisters.

One song "musical"
24 December 2017 | by the_doofySee all my reviews

When the cast 'finally' do the song at the very end, it made me even more irritated at the whole thing, they sounded beautiful together, and only did one lousy song.

The rest of the movie was involving itself with acceptance on various issues, I guess the song was supposed to be something that makes all of us feel good about alternative lifestyles snd different ways of thinking, BUT I was watching the movie for real music and singing, it did not deliver on this.

A whole movie and one song, U would think they would have gone through the effort to do a couple more

A real waste of real talent and frustrating for someone looking for a real musical movie
