I love her so much mostly cuz I love her mom and she is such a replica of her but Zoey seems so cool and hella talented I’m glad she’s getting more recognition.

Oh, James, EVERYTHING goes missing at Jewish summer camp. The kid probably just shrugged it off and asked his parents for another one.

Not to like FLEX but I’ve hear that Harry Potter story TWICE live so you know, I’m just, superior and wayyyyy yo obsessed with Ben platt:)

That is the most accurate song I’ve ever heard. I played it at yom kipur dinner tonight & my entire family was obsessed.

The Catholic equivalent is making your Confirmation.. all I remember is getting a shit load of money and a new outfit!

I love when celebs on talk shows tell stories revealing that they might be, um, a bit sociopathic. (no guilt, no shame, no empathy for doing shit like stealing a book?). Curious….

That's terrible!! Stealing a book (specially if it's HP) is just a no go ! I would be totally devestated if that would happen to me, think that person isn't finished with it and the next day it's gone you are on a cliffhanger your parents can't send you one because you "lost" it and if they do you have to wait until it arrives! Sorry but i just don't think that was a bit funny ! Ok he was young but he doesn't seem a bit ashamed!

If Zoey is not married, I would marry her. Zoey if you ever get to Colorado and want to meet a nice Jewish guy, please hit me up.

dear ben and zoey. no. no. NO. yom kippur does NOT work like that, one does not simply make a Theme Song for yom kippur. it is a sad and quiet day where everyone just kinda sit and think about their sins. g'mar hatima tova from isreal.

i relate so much to them having been raised jewish (lmao sleep away camp) and it's just so lovely to see actors talking about and embracing their culture and acknowledging the holidays <3 they were hilarious but i suppose the audience was all gentiles who didn't really connect with their jokes.

Zoey is exactly like her mother! It’s seriously like watching Lea Thompson up there. And Ben is amazing! Loved this!

Laughing so hard. When the 7th book came out I was 12yo at bible camp. I snuck away during a canoe trip and biked into town (in a state I didn't live in) and stole a copy from their public library. It's still sitting on my shelf

Zoey Deutch and Ben Platt are phenomenal. They inspire my feature film project Superheroic so much based out of Jerusalem which I do plan on submitting to the Oscar Academy Awards. My film is about a war hero named Eleanor Warren who is 27 years old and becomes a USC film director graduate school alum. She also overcomes her challenges with High Functioning Autism and being bullied just because she embraces the authenticity of her identity.
