I saw this film last month at the BJFF and it's terrific! It's like a Jewish "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" but with a lot more intelligence and insight. Jennifer Westfeldt wrote a great script and is so likable in the film. Robert Cary did a great job directing. Chris Messina is an exciting new comedic actor, he plays a spot on New York Jewish neurotic. I loved him on "Six Feet Under" as Ted too. Judith Light and Fred Williard also deliver great performances. There are great cameos from Jason Alexander and a bunch of the "SNL" guys. The audience loved the movie, it's got more laughs than any comedy i've seen in a long time. I hope it's going to be out in theaters soon as I need to send my friends, family and therapist to go see it.
