So I Married A Shaygetz aka My Big Fat Jewish Wedding

Coinciding with the release of the new British comedy Suzie Gold, about a JAP (the “A” is for “Anglo”) who’s contemplating marrying her shaygetz boyfriend, The Guardian sent three Jewish women—and a non-Jewish boyfriend—to see the film, and to judge “whether it matched their experiences.”

One thought on “So I Married A Shaygetz aka My Big Fat Jewish Wedding

  1. I remember watching “Greek Wedding,” and just thinking about how closely it paralleled a common Jewish experience. What troubles me is how difficult it is to imagine a filmmaker or audience sticking up for the “other side.” Whether or not one has a problem with intermarriage, the fact is that “Love over all” is a value judgement in the same way that “Jews have a distinct role to play in this world” is a value judgement. But, only one of those value systems is ever really “valued” in such movies.
