Positively unwatchable comedy about a man whose overbearing Jewish mother () keeps trying to set him up on dates with nice Jewish girls. She has no idea that he’s actually happily coupled with sexy painter , and when she finds out, during a wedding, she hits the roof. The premise offers such possibilities to be fun, but Evgeny Afineevsky’s direction is hackneyed and wastes Kazan’s talents, who comes off tired and awkward here, while  in the lead is thoroughly unsympathetic. A comedy with this fun a set-up should not be such a chore to sit through, but it’s never particularly funny and cast members  and  stick out like sore thumbs.
