Director Rachel Talbot brought four comediennes -- Judy Gold, Jackie Hoffman, Cory Kahaney and Jessica Kirson -- together in a Manhattan deli where they first lament that Carol Burnett, Phyllis Diller and Penny Marshall are NOT Jewish, and then discuss "funny Jewish women" -- themselves and the likes of Molly Picon, Fanny Brice, Sophie Tucker, Joan Rivers, Wendy Wasserstein and Gilda Radner. Both an impressive documentary and a laugh riot, "Making Trouble" is truly a feel-good movie.
