Colourful romantic comedy about the stylish woman () who causes a rift between a rabbi () and his Catholic priest best friend (Edward Norton), after the three of them are reunited for the first time since childhood. Norton makes a promising directorial debut, though he shouldn’t be so tough in giving himself so little screen time considering he is way more appealing than Stiller could ever hope to be. On the other hand, he should be tougher on himself in the editing room considering the film runs well over two hours (a big no-no for romantic comedy). A supporting performance by Anne Bancroft is the highlight of the occasion.
