Following up the success of candid camera television shows and one such feature film, this weakly limned comedy has just such a program's crew going out into the nooks and crannies of Israel to entrap unsuspecting citizens. Although some of the practical jokes and tricksters in these shows can trash the people who fall victim to their duplicity, this movie does not. Good-natured citizens might feel a little foolish, but they are not ridiculed. Among the deceptions is one sequence in which a group of people are told that the only way they can start a train is to go and push it -- and so they do. Another sequence has an ATM (Automatic Teller Machine) responding like a human being as customers approach to take out money.
