Storyline

Jake and Brian are friends. They are Jewish and Catholic respectively. They would grow up and become a rabbi and priest. Anna, whom they knew when they were younger, comes back to town a stunning woman. Jake is up to be the head of his synagogue but he is not married which doesn't make his appointment any easier. Jake finds himself attracted to Anna but because she's not Jewish, he can't marry her as it would make his appointment less likely. Brian also finds himself attracted to Anna, but the priesthood doesn't allow that. Their friendship is strained when each learns of the other's feelings for her. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Goofs

Some of the scenes that supposedly take place on Yom Kippur on not realistic. Yom Kippur is a solemn day of fasting, prayer and repentance, and observant Jews spend basically the entire day in temple services...following Jake's Yom Kippur "speech" as they called it (there are no "speeches," they are called sermons) the board of Jake's temple appears to have a meeting to discuss his career, this would/could never happen since no work is allowed on that day. Also it appears that right after that meeting concludes and Jake finds out he still has a job he then gets Anna and goes to the karaoke party....there is no way Jake, Rabbi Lewis and Jake's mother would be at a karaoke party on Yom Kippur.

SEE THIS MOVIE!
11 April 2000 | by See all my reviews

I laughed and laughed and laughed, then when people started staring I laughed some more.... This movie was excellent. Ben Stiller and Edward Norton are wonderful. It was also nice to see Jenna Elfman in something different than her Dharma character (which I also like). Unlike a lot of movies I've seen recently the trailer didn't show every single dingle good part. I loved the supporting cast and I would recommend this film to everyone. My boyfriend even liked it and that says a lot.
