Jo Jo, actually Johannes, is a 10 year old boy who lives with his mother in a modest sized town in Germany near the end of World War II. We see him as a new recruit to the Nazi youth led by Sam Rockwell's and Rebel Wilson's characters. After an accident, spurred by Jo Jo's pretend best friend, Adolf Hitler, Jo Jo inherits the name Jo Jo Rabbit as ridicule. Eventually, Jo Jo discovers a teen girl in their attic being hid by his Mother who is probably part of the Underground. Never-the-less, Jo Jo "thinks" he is a Nazi and begins to write a book called YooHoo Jew about how to identify Jewish people. Of course, his head has been filled with nonsense in the Nazi controlled schools. This satire/farce is difficult to evaluate. The acting is very, very good especially Sam Rockwell and Scarlett Johansson as well as Jo Jo himself played by Roman Griffin Davis. Nazi Germany and the persecution/death of millions of Jews are difficult subjects, rightfully so. With many light moments which certainly make "fun" of the Nazis, you will smile/perhaps laugh. However, the stark terror/evil of the time is not forgotten. I left feeling sad although we see the end of World War II by the film's end.

This movie is worth watching for its satirical value!! I loved it!!! It was escape from the current world situation, for which COVID-19 has taken over other amusements. I enjoyed the wit of laughing at the expense of silly Nazis!!!
