    "The Holocaust merely serves as a backdrop to the central conflict of this movie but its presence is felt keenly, just as the Holocaust's effects are still felt to this day/ The movie is also wonderful all on its own. "

    "I know this movie is controversial because it uses the Holocaust as a joke but it's still a pretty well-made film. Watch it if you want to learn more about the Holocaust but would prefer a more lighthearted movie."

    "Although the Holocaust doesn't feature directly into the film, it IS the motivation of the main players in the movie. As a Jew myself, it's great to see Jews being able to kick ass against the Nazis!!"
