Netflix still hasn’t given me the Jewish holiday romantic comedy I’ve been asking for, but it has a Jewish tween movie! You’re not invited to my Bat Mitzvah like this is the tween movie we didn’t know we were expecting! And it’s also based on a book, which is even better.
The book of the same name is by Fiona Rosenbloom and was first published in 2005. The story follows Stacy Friedman as she plans her ultimate bat mitzvah. She wants it to be the party of the year, to have her best friend Lydia by her side, and to have her crush actually dance with her. Unfortunately, things don’t go as planned and everything starts to fall apart.
Drama and boys ensue between the two friends, Stacy’s parents don’t let her do what she wants and she still has to learn everything for her bat mitzvah ceremony. Hebrew is not an easy language to learn, especially when the whole world is going nuts!
The film stars are Sunny Sandler, Adam Sandler, Idina Menzel, Samantha Lorraine, Jackie Sandler, Sadie Sandler, Dylan Hoffman, Sarah Sherman, Jackie Hoffman and Luis Guzmán.
You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah is coming to Netflix
You’re not invited to my Bat Mitzvah like this arrives on Netflix on Friday, August 25, 2023 at 12:01 am PT/3:01 am ET. Once you’ve been able to handle the stress of a bat mitzvah, this film could make you stay up late and relive your awkward in-between years. Otherwise, this is definitely the perfect movie for a Friday or Saturday night.
Hopefully this movie is a sign that there will be many different (not just Adam Sandler related) Jewish movies coming to Netflix. However, we only want them if Netflix pays the writers and actors appropriately.
