Storyline

In toney Brentwood, Benjamin Fiedler prepares for his bar mitzvah; trouble is, he understands neither its meaning nor the Hebrew, and his parents (particularly his successful-agent father) are planning the most lavish party possible. Benjamin wants his dad to give him some space, so he gets an idea: to invite his grandfather, who left the family years ago and for whom Benjamin's dad has an intense dislike, to come two weeks early. Thanks in part to grandpa - and to the immediate family's love - Benjamin may have a shot at figuring out what it means to be a man. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Keeping Up with the Fielders!
10 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Steins had an over the top Titanic themed Bar Mitzvah for their son. In this film, Ben Fielder is studying for his Bar Mitzvah in Brentwood, Los Angeles, California. His father is played by Jeremy Piven and his mother is played by Jami Getz. His paternal grandmother is played by the wonderful Doris Roberts and his paternal grandfather is played by Garry Marshall who is just as wonderful. His grandfather left his son and wife for another life where he teaches on the Navajo Indian reservation in New Mexico with his new younger girlfriend played by Daryl Hannah. Everybody is perfectly cast in this film. This film should have aired on television than in cinema. Anyway, the story about the coming of age and how unconventional grandfather relates to his conventional son and his family is worth watching. I enjoyed the film and would love to see it again. I saw it on television last weekend and I liked it.
