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>

A Little Wonderful Gem of a Movie
17 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We saw this in a small art house movie and I gotta tell you, they should make a heck of a lot more movies like "Keeping Up With the Steins" than the big block-buster movies which everybody sees and are basically wastes of time. This is a wonderful movie, tasteful in every aspect. You find yourself smiling throughout the 1 1/2 hour movie. My only negative is that I wish it were longer! It is not a knee slapping kind of comedy even though two or three times I laughed at loud. How I wish Hollywood would stand up and take notice about this kind of film. To me, this is the standout of the season so far. You don't have to be Jewish to enjoy this film, but as they say, "it couldn't hurt!" Run - don't walk to see this film. My rating - EXCELLENT!!
