Envy A Pity

If Ben Stiller and Jack Black’s new comedy Envy is “the most Jewish film of all time,” as proposed by our friends at SomethingJewish, dude, we’re in trouble.

  1. Yeah, I don’t get this either. Might as well dub every movie Ben Stiller makes with any other Jew as the “Most Jewish Movie Ever.” Makes little sense to me…

  2. But sure, we can raise the bar a little higher than Ben Stiller, maybe. Like up to Barry Levinson at least…

  3. Eventually, Ben Stiller will be the Jew with the most movies.

  6. I got my anatomy mixed up.
    I should have written:
    He can be an honorary ‘member’ as long as his putz is kosher.

  7. Ben Stiller is Jewish. Him dad is Jewish and his mom converted to Judaism and he had a bar mitzvah.

  8. She did not have an orthodox conversion therefore hes not Jewish according to Halacha. And having a Bar Mitzvah never made anyone Jewish.

"I may attack a certain point of view which I consider false, but I will never attack a person who preaches it. I have always a high regard for the individual who is honest and moral, even when I am not in agreement with him. Such a relation is in accord with the concept of kavod habriyot, for beloved is man for he is created in the image of God." —Rav Joseph Soloveitchik
