The Big Lebowski
You could stick to the Jewish supercut of Walter Sobchak's best moments; but we encourage you to see the entire Coen brothers film about mistaken identity, which recently celebrated its 20th anniversary.


The Birdcage 
The 1996 film features one of Robin Williams' best performances as a Jewish father, Armand Goldman. Armand's love for his son is what sets into motion the hilarious comedy that ensues. When his son essentially tells him that his way of life will not only embarrass him but ruin his chance at wedded bliss, Armand turns his life upside down to make his son happy at the cost of whatever harm it may do his relationship, business, and self-worth.

BlacKkKlansman
Spike Lee's latest film, and one of his most acclaimed in years, tells the true story of how a black police detective, Ron Stallworth, infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan during the 1970s. Adam Driver co-stars as his Jewish partner on the force, who helps pull off the undercover operation by "standing in" as Stallworth at Klan meetings and rallies.
