Storyline

In colorful, bustling modern-day Manhattan, Rafi Gardet, a beautiful 37-year-old photography producer reeling from a recent divorce, meets David Bloomberg, a handsome 23-year-old painter recently out of college. Rafi's therapist, Dr. Lisa Metzger, who is working to help Rafi overcome her fears of intimacy, finds out that Rafi's new lover is--unfortunately for Lisa--her only son, David. Both David and Rafi must contend with their 14-year age gap, vastly different backgrounds and the demands of David's traditional mother. Despite their intense attraction, the charmed couple soon realizes that vastly different ages and backgrounds create much conflict. A Jewish hip-hop lover and closet painter who still lives with his grandparents, David has little in common with Rafi--a non-practicing Catholic from a wealthy, broken family who travels in the sophisticated, high-end world of fashion.

Don't watch this movie-- run from the room screaming
6 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

This was the worst movie I ever saw. It was trite, predictable and completely lacking in any thing resembling comedy. No timing, no jokes. And awkward scenes abound. The acting was pale and there was no chemistry, none what so ever. And I was ashamed for Uma for having appeared in it. There was nothing good about this movie except for maybe the credits and the fact that it wasn't a very long movie. It was unbelievable and unfunny. It was actually rather sad that Meryl Streep was in this movie. I think the worst part was the directing. The scenes were lack luster and the alleged climax scenes were blasé at best. But if you like annoying, too long, non-comedic comedies with good actors at their worst, the this is the movie for you!
