Comedy about the culture clash between two Jewish families.
10 March 1999 | by See all my reviews

Mollie (Molly Picon) is an effervescent young woman who lifts weights, boxes, and generally tries to run things her way. When she and her Papa are invited to attend a cousin's wedding in Poland, they embark on a journey that no member of their extended family will ever forget.

Once she gets to Poland, Mollie continues pulling stunts, including one that backfires dramatically. On the eve of her cousin's wedding, she gets several of their friends together to stage a "mock" wedding, with Mollie herself as the bride. To play the groom, the companions choose a shy, withdrawn Talmudic scholar who has to be coaxed into playing the part. But when the hi-jinx are over, it turns out that the presiding rabbi is a real rabbi, and the couple are really married!
