great comedy, romance and relationship film
26 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of the most entertaining films I have seen in a long time. I was looking forward to seeing this film by Jennifer Westfeldt since her "Kissing Jessica Stein" was such a delight. Everyone I know has said that was one of their favorite films.

"Ira and Abby" definitely doesn't disappoint. The casting is amazing with many top stars. Sometimes it appears that directors choose famous actors only for their celebrity. Not so in "Ira and Abby" since all of the actors give great performances and are not just caricatures. Jason Alexander, as one of the several psychiatrists in the movie, sheds his Seinfeld persona and truly gets into his character. Same with Robert Klein, who gives one of his best performances. Jennifer Westfeldt, as Abby, is refreshing and natural and is a joy to watch as she goes through myriad of emotions and transformations in the film. Kudos to the casting director for all of the excellent choices.

The writer and director have intelligently avoided showing us a serious subject as simply funny and without pain. There is a lot of humor but also a serious side with a twist ending that makes this film a must see for all ages. It is an original and refreshing take on modern romance.
