Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"You feel sorry for everyone who's working so hard to prop up the farce - especially Mr. Fogel, the director, whose work seems alternately desperate and lost."
‑ David DeWitt, New York Times
"It's a movie that thinks it stands for openness and cultural understanding, underneath the poop jokes, when in fact it manages to be offensive to almost everyone, including people who like to laugh at something because it's funny ..."
‑ Diana Clarke, Village Voice
"Witless and asinine. Not nearly as funny as The Hebrew Hammer."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"Oy! Jewtopia may sound like utopia, but watching it will give you a vision of hell."
‑ Eric Monder, Film Journal International
"To call this winkfest toward an astoundingly retrograde sliver of Judaism offensive would be, well, offensive to the word offensive."
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"A funny walk on the meshugener side for those who can still laugh at religious stereotypes."
‑ Ron Wilkinson, Monsters and Critics
"An appalling array of hideous ethic and gender stereotypes is what passes for 'humor' in this pitiful excuse for a comedy."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"Fogel and co-writer Sam Wolfson - adapting their own off-Broadway play - take ... a lazy approach to the cultural divides they aim to satirize."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"Under the direction of Bryan Fogel, Jewtopia is hopelessly cheap and stage-bound in a way that pushes the jokes to a higher and more intolerable pitch."
‑ Gabe Toro, The Playlist
"Rather than finding a fresh approach to ethnic humor, it relies on tired old standbys that have lost their punch."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
