Most of the film was shot in New York City and Connecticut but a couple of scenes, including the bookstore scene between Josh and Jessica, were re-shot in Los Angeles. See more »
Some shots during the wedding (when Jessica and Josh are up on the roof) are flipped (the text on a sign on the wall is reversed and the text on a sign on the inside of the door is also reversed). See more »
Some people smoke pot, some people bungee jump, some people chant. What do you do to be happy?
Nothing. I'm not.

Kissing Jessica Stein is supremely wonderful. It is the best romantic comedy I have ever seen. The movie made me laugh, it made me cry, it was everything you could ever want in a movie. I would recommend it to anyone. The characters are hilarious, but three dimensional and the sense of humor that the movie carries is phenomenal.
The scenes in New York and beautifully shot, also and the Jewish family is very much like my own. Though some characters might be called stereotypical, I would have to thoroughly disagree and say that I thought every character had their our twists and turns. Lastly, I thought the chemistry between Helen and Jessica was so perfect for the movie. At first Jessica was uncomfortable, but by the end of their relationship Jessica was dependent on Helen.
Beautiful, beautiful movie!!
