Donny Drucker’s 1998 Bar Mitzvah VHS Tape is now available to watch in your home. Yes, see what it was like to be at a party that featured “scandalous affairs, love triangles, spin the bottle and a man with ranch dressing for hands.”
Written, directed and produced by Jonathan Kaufman, this movie appears to be an old VHS tape, shot in the style of a home video. It makes its way through the scandalous behavior of kids and their parents at a bar mitzvah.
Somehow, Danny Trejo ends up at this and I bet he has no idea how to speak Yiddish. I really liked how far this movie pushed things, unafraid to go for it and be as raunchy as the teen comedies that I grew up watching.
I’ve never been at a bar mitzvah, so it’s hard for me to comment on the accuracy of the proceedings, but after seeing this movie, I pretty much am looking for an invitation to go to one.
Donny’s Bar Mitzvah is available on iTunes and Prime Video on March 23.
