    I’m humored by the fact that u don’t realize that #1 was employing sarcasm.

    Sarcasm: “a sharp, bitter, or cutting expression or remark; a bitter jibe or taunt.” [1] Some authorities sharply distinguish sarcasm from irony,[2] however others argue that sarcasm may or often does involve irony.[3]” (wkipedia.com)

    Please do sign your names when you write a post telling us how you’re looking forward to seeing the movies discussed in the article. What, you don’t want for people to know who you are???? Why’s that? Perhaps you know that such an activity (watching Hollywood movies) is still pahst nit? Follow your Yetzer Tov, not your Yetzer Hara!!!! PLEASE!!!! That will give you and your families Yiddishe, Chassidishe Nachas!!!!! And that’s just the short-term reward. You’ll also be a dugma chaya for others, including your sweet kinderneshamalach.

    The comments on this article are even more entertaining than the article itself! (humor-wise)
    man chabad is a community fortified with comedians..
    And it doesn’t mention whether Mendy likely replied ‘ditto’ to adon pitt’s remark about liking and watchig HIS work.
    Hehehehe

    Kosher?

    So now it’s Kosher for a Lub to play in a movie. What a Chidush. Ad Mosai?

    Guest
    Think geula

    The Rebbe said take the lights of Tohu and put them in keillim of Tikkun. Mendy is working with Hollywood’s most famous and wealthiest film stars, Brad Pitt. Wake up everyone, Hollywood gets influenced by us and not the other way around. It wll all be for good!

    i think pitt was just being nice/polite, but it’s anyway nice to see pellin moving up the entertainment ladder. i find him funny and talented and hope he hits mainstream, and not on pitts coattails either.

    hey pellin, can you still put out a local monthly joke bit? make it include mainstream or general international news and perhps it can goviral…

    great stuff!

    I once came down to  movie set  to bless it
    Guest
    I once came down to movie set to bless it

    The director of the blockbuster was Jewish and wanted me to bless the movie with some a list actors. It gave me an opportunity to do Tefilin with him etc. I did a whole blessing – the movie never made it to screen.

    Mendy - you should have hatzlocha

    All the best.

    Cool
    Guest
    Cool

    This is gr8. Good luck mendy. Btw i dont watch movies but i believe that if someone does then it’s his personal thing. Every person needs to grow in their own things and maybe watching hollywood is such a little thing for them that it’s not so important. Each to their own. On that note i hav a photo wiv mendy pellin and wen he’s even bigger i’ll put it online to make me famous lol

    rav shlomoh ben hutz comments that even if e.g.hollywood is sorounded with not jewish people he/she should still go and show all non jews who we are!!!
    i hope this encourages all jewish pops to go and make a movie in hollywood!!!!
    no need to thank me when your dreams come true!!!! good luck and plz dont check up that rabbie because you can trust me!!!

    a movie is a ‘picture’ (pronounced: piktcheh) as in motion-picture: a video!

    …remind me of the days when a 770 hook-up had something to do with satellites!

    no need to be a wannabe

    guys, stop drooling over hollywood. Glitz and glamour is not better then what we have. (besides hollywood is place of adultry and pritzos) we should know better then to get all bent out of shape when we hear the word “holywood”

    no offence!
    Guest
    no offence!

    im finding these comments strange!!
    anyone with me??

    To all the negative folk
    Guest
    To all the negative folk

    why do people have to automatically be so negative? Has he done anything wrong? is putting tefillin on Jews wrong? Is working with people who aren’t “chassidish” wrong? Is spreading the light and warmth of Yiddishkeit (which is NOT APPARENT from your disparaging remarks) wrong?

    No. So stop jumping to conclusions, and be thankful a Chossid is working in the areas you dare not go and doing the work you dare not do.

    Amen, Moshiach now. 🙂

    I have a question.
    Guest
    I have a question.

    Is there a way to see the part of the movie that has Mendy in it without seeing the whole movie? Can you at COL please post a clip of that part of the movie (assuming you can obtain a piece of the movie….maybe ask the producers explaining that there are ppl who want to see it who don’t watch movies). Thank you.
