Synopsis: When a group of best friends in Tel Aviv gather to watch 'UniverSong', they are less than impressed by the official Israeli entry. Believing that they can do better, they spontaneously create and record their own song on a mobile phone. Little do they know, their performance is seen by the 'UniverSong' judges and soon they are reluctantly thrown into the spotlight as Israel's next official entry. After initial reservations about their new found celebrity status, they decide to just go for it and find themselves on the road to international stardom. They embark on a flamboyant journey that brings about hilarious end results as they go head to head with the Russian entry in the 'UniverSong' final. From director Eytan Fox comes this extravagant and unashamedly entertaining Eurovision parody featuring a feel-good soundtrack provided by Babydaddy from the Scissor Sisters. With bright styling, irresistibly catchy tunes and a gloriously uplifting storyline, this laugh-out-loud comedy is a ref

There are two things

that can change my mood:

A good pop song.

And sex.

I don't have any sex,

so today I recommend

doing what my neighbors

and I do every year:

watch the UniverSong contest.

Between us,

what's wrong with

a little excitement,

a little nostalgia,

and bizarre acts

from all over the world'?

It doesn't take much preparation,

the contest does

most of the work,

all you have to do is

get the party-poopers

out of the house.

Remember to evacuate

the house by 4pm'?

And invite guests who'll enjoy

indulging in your silliness.

That's why I write my blog.

To remind all oi us

that with our dull routines...

Have a nice day, princess.

You too.

The days that are all alike...

Love you.

Me too.

You shouldn't let anybody

It's okay to close the button.

Turn off your happiness button.

- Bye, Dad.


So tonight,

we will celebrate the

long gone days of innocence,

the days you borrowed a cup

of sugar from your neighbor

and stayed for coffee.

The days of one TV channel,

one TV set,

and lots of people

gathered around it.

- Zohar?


What's with the turmeric'?


You know she hates the smell.

It's mom's cooking.

I couldn't say no.

Tonight, we all want to be

part of the normal world

and not fight it for once.

And tonight, "competition"

isn't a dirty word-.

On the contrary.

It's the name of the game.

Everyone would give anything

to be the one who stays with us

for many years to come.

So prepare your charts

and air out your shoulder pads

and don't forget...

Did I forget something

at the office?

I hope so...


To tell me when to pick you up.


Sorry, I promised to go to

a tenants' meeting.

Can I make it up to you'?

You ought to.

Because each one of us deserves

his own guilty pleasure.

Thank you, thank you,

and now

put the costumes

and chairs back in place.

Shlomi! Shlomi, sweetie,

take off the dress.

Daddy's picking you up soon.


Oh-ho! What do we have here?

You'll find out tonight.

Just tidy up,

the rest is on me.


Morn, can't you see

I'm busy?

Go upstairs, I'll be right there.

Hi. Are we meeting tonight?



Oh, no. I have a gig.

On UniverSong night?

You know, it's not

the same audience.

- What about... Uh...


Ruti, right. Maybe

she can come?

No, Huti has basketball.

She'd never miss it.

Right, it's the semifinals.

I have men at home, too.

I mean... Um...

Right. Next year. For sure.

Hold on, one at a time,

One at a time-.

Yes, Danny.

Madam Minister, your comment

on the budget cutback?

See here, Danny,

I know these days are difficult,

but we have to stick together.

And tonight we should all

cross our fingers.

I want to take this opportunity

to address our representative

at the UniverSong,

wish him luck, and

hope he shows everybody

what amour is!

But still, Madam Minister,

a word about the cutback.

You don't expect the Minister

to address this issue

in one word, do you'?

Did I miss anything?

- Hi.


I guess not.

"The Minister's busy schedule

my ass.

She drove us crazy.

When she thought she might

miss the first song

she almost broke the GPS.


I can't believe it!


You baked all the competing


I was in a good mood

this morning.

Honey, are you okay?

Yes. No. It's just...

the cheeses... I have to put them

in the oven.

Cheese, in the oven'?

The UniverSong Contest,

brought to you by the Hummus Family,

wishing all of you

a lovely evening.

Hummus, the cream of the hummus,

the real thing.

I dreamed about him

last night.
