Storyline

A story about a dysfunctional Jewish family in Brooklyn. Shula and David have two sons: Nick, an alcoholic, marriage consultant who's watching his own marriage collapse and Ben, (in the closet) who's having problems with his transvestite partner, Jasmine. Not aware of Ben's sexuality, the parents decide to fix him up with a nice Jewish girl on Passover night. The supposedly innocent virgin arrives with her parents hoping to have a great time. Everything goes pretty well until Jasmine; Ben's transvestite partner arrives unexpectedly. Written by Roy Avigdori

Great Movie
2 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm seeing the bad ratings this movie got, and I can't believe it. I guess those people either don't have any artistic taste, or they simply rate this movie without seeing it.

How can one not love this original comedy. The writing is extraordinary, the directing is great, and the acting is fantastic.

This movie is unique, and is a rare find in today's films.

I loved every minute of it, and I think it delivers a great message, from start to finish. Very original work. Two thumbs up!

I also want to add that the plot is very original. The subject of being gay in a traditional family is chilling. And the writer delivers it in a sweet, funny way.
