First, i hope my English is sufficient enough to say all i want. I saw this movie 13 years ago but not ever since so i remember very little of it. I sure have something to say about it. This movie is not about Jewish culture. I don't think that was the objective of the movie. it doesn't speak of the holocaust in a nut shell, or through the eyes of a deranged police officer who just lost his mind over visits of his personal ghost. liver and onion are not the only thing Jews eat and certainly they don't use 'meshuganeh' on everyday spoken language. Unfortunately Yeddish is becoming a forgotten language for many people who live in Israel because of rude government directed estrangement and short sighted, ignorant educational program. But what of it? don't you ever use the word "crazy" every now and then? I have a question or two: 1.. What's wrong with comedy - for many people it seems as if the holocaust has shut down all human feelings so laughter is forbidden? for centuries the essence of Jewish self preservation was based on humor and this movie isn't different than other humorous Jewish stories. on the contrary: all aspects must be considered and if one wants to use comedy to bring some objectives into surface, then one should do it. Since this movie wasn't about holocaust but a funny situation of "murder she wrote"/comedy - it did very well. It wasn't the best movie about post-war-guilt psychological situation because it did not mean to be like it. 2.. Why would reminders of Jewish food and Yiddish slang offend anyone (or raise anger)? it was the natural habitat of an entire Jewish European people. Jews are not only about great writers and scientists, they're not all Einsteins. Openheimers,Boers, Mendelsons, Yasha Hefets and so forth. But also about common people who were mostly farmers and tailors and carpenters who used common (slang) Yiddish language as many Christians (if they wanted their way in local commerce)for everyday life - so food. language, habits, and even, god forbid, comedians would be very good examples among the unfortunate six millions. Genghis Cohn is maybe one small example that represents the whole
