Storyline

As Suzie Gold's sister prepares to get married, it seems only natural that Suzie's thoughts should turn to the state of her own love-life. While her doting but dysfunctional family desperately want her to be happy - preferably by finding a good Jewish boy to settle down with - Suzie meets Darren, a boy from work, and they start a heady romance.

Its two-dimensional, unappealing and poorly formulated characters and storyline only partially account for the miserable wreckage that was this film
30 September 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was very tempted to give it 1 star, but since I remember smiling once or twice during this alleged comedy, I thought I'd be lenient. There were one or two meaningful observations in this film (like the little brother who smoked marijuana and thought he was a gangster), but on the whole, the portrayal of north London Jewish life had no depth whatsoever. The script sounded as though it had been written by a fourteen year old for a religious studies assignment. I cringe when I think back to the scene in which they're having shabbat dinner at the start of the film, having one of the most contrived, would-never-sound-like-that-in-real-life debates. I won't even begin to go into the appalling chemistry between suzie and her apparent soulmate, or the pathetic caricatures that were her parents and friends. This film was full of stereotypes but had none of the warmth and likability that you had in my big fat Greek wedding, which was itself not lacking in stereotyping. Simplifying characters and family dynamics only works when there's an underlying truth, warmth and sincerity to it. Suzie Gold contained all the negative and un-insightful stereotypes of Jewish life but was too simply and narrowly conceived to portray the fundamental redeeming features of the Jewish family that have been able to sustain it. The love, warmth, and well-intentioned overbearingness of my big fat Greek wedding, that made it so enjoyable, were sorely missing from suzie gold.
