Jake and Brian are friends. They are Jewish and Catholic respectively. They would grow up and become a rabbi and priest respectively. 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 is not Jewish, he can't marry cause it would be another thing that will make his appointment less likely. Brian also finds himself attracted to Anna but being a priest doesn't allow that. When they learn of each other's feelings for her, strains their friendship. Written by
During the conversation between Jake and Brian, after the fight in the synagogue, the camera is on Jake's face from behind Brian's shoulder at one point. You can clearly see that he is not talking, and yet we hear Brian's voice. See more »

You know you better not lie in here man, this is the big room! God does not look favorably on you. He has a tendancy to throw... lightning bolts at things... At liars!

A fresh, fun romantic comedy in a New York state of mind.
"Keeping the Faith" is just hip enough to breathe some fresh air into a stagnating genre without sacrificing the requisite "feel good" moments in the process. The film's 2+ hour run time is a bit long for it's simple plot, but it manages to stay focused and dish up enough creativity to make it time well spent. A very enjoyable fun flick.
