    +++ "My big, fat, Jewish-Muslim wedding." - The Jewish Journal & The Jerusalem Post.

    +++ "Take the star-crossed romance of Romeo & Juliet, add some graphic sexual humor a la The 40-Year-Old Virgin and toss into the crucible of Middle East politics, and you get David & Layla, a frothy romantic comedy. David & Layla is suffused with the warmth and passion of filmmaker Jay Jonroy Every scene Callie Thorne is in crackles with unhinged hilarity." - Washington Post.

    +++ "It's hard not to be infected by the good humor and sheer joie de vivre of David & Layla." -LA Weekly

    +++ "This indie New York comedy ultimately seduces us with a steady assault of goodwill, bad jokes, goofy charm and buoyant music into buying a love affair between Brooklyn Jew and a Kurdish Muslim. It becomes contagious." - Washington Jewish Week

    +++ "David & Layla manages to be both randy and chaste. An offbeat cross-cultural romance with a positive message." - The Los Angeles Times.

    +++ "Course of Love Runs Smooth in Film about Muslim-Jewish relations." - VOA News Analysis, Press Conference USA.

    +++ “Jonroy may have given the cinema its first Kurdish sex symbol: Shiva Rose. There is much humor in David & Layla, some of it surprisingly raunchy." - Nashville Scene
