Storyline

In toney Brentwood, Benjamin Fiedler prepares for his bar mitzvah; trouble is, he understands neither its meaning nor the Hebrew, and his parents (particularly his successful-agent father) are planning the most lavish party possible. Benjamin wants his dad to give him some space, so he gets an idea: to invite his grandfather, who left the family years ago and for whom Benjamin's dad has an intense dislike, to come two weeks early. Thanks in part to grandpa - and to the immediate family's love - Benjamin may have a shot at figuring out what it means to be a man. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofs

When where Benjamin is talking to his grandfather while fishing on the pier; at one point the background behind Ben is filled with sailboats while the camera is on him. The shot switches to his grandfather for a few lines and when it switches back to Ben, just a few seconds later, the sailboats are all gone. There was not enough time for the boats to have sailed out of the scene. See more »

This is a wonderful movie going experience
16 May 2006 | by shel23See all my reviews

Keeping up with the steins is the type of movie that studios can be proud to release to the public. The acting is great, the script is well written, there is nothing bad about this movie. The lessons to be learned from this story are such that everyone viewing this movie can take something from it. I applaud the actors, the writers, the directors, and the production company who have placed a small gem on the market. This will not be a big market high grossing film, but if what you want is true entertainment and a feel good movie do not miss this. The large companies should produce a lot more movies like this one.
