"The tone is light and farcical, the humor decidedly, but cleverly, lowbrow." (Publishers Weekly)
i really like this. being a black british woman, i dont suppose it was aimed at me, but i found it very funny. enjoyed it a lot
It doesn't get any better than "Phone calls from Jewish mothers." Please keep in mind that this is a book written by Jews for Jews, and some segments may offend extremely devout born-again Christians. This Christian, however, loved it and hopes to someday get a chance to see the Broadway show. (Skip through the truly infantile chapter regarding human excrement- proof that Brian and Sam didn't let their mothers read the first draft before sending it off to the publisher. The rest of the book is great.)
I was really disapointed to say the least. I found it silly - dumb. Listening to a real bad comedy with little substance, and really poor material. Just not worth the time to listen and at some point I had to turn it off. It just wasn't funny or amusing to me. I would not recommend this to anyone, and not recommend it as a gift. I'd skip it. It was unfortunate, as I was really hoping for some good ol Jewish laughter. They were the only ones laughing, and I'm not sure what was so funny.
