Taylor James is NOT the man. Although he's a popular bar mitzvah emcee in New Jersey - a state which he's never been outside of - he can't dress, he can't dance, and he's...well...totally clueless. So when premiere NYC event planner Vanessa Dupree offers to make him a star in the Big Apple bar mitzvah scene, it's an offer he can't refuse. With the help of legendary emcee Sebastian, Vanessa and company make Taylor the mitzvah MAN, and soon they are booking the most lavish bar mitzvah gigs ever. But emcee fame - a world of fast living, demanding customers, and competitive rivalry - has its price... This is the story of a bar mitzvah emcee's rise from lame - to fame - and back again.

Extremely entertaining !
15 December 2005 | by rcoppaesqSee all my reviews

Glow Ropes was an extremely entertaining and enjoyable movie. Viewed in NYC, I along with other friends and a sold out crowd continually were laughing aloud, relating to the situations as we northeasteners experience and understand the bar mitzvah extravagance, and grooving in our chairs to well selected music! This is a movie for any age goer to enjoy from children to senior citizens. George Valencia's "acting" was more than acting having actually spent years as an emcee---you can definitely feel the energy and sincerity he eludes. A job well done by all involved I would highly recommend this movie to anyone looking for a night of fun and laughter. Kudos to a young, professional and talented group who I am sure we will see much more from in the future.
