Editorial Reviews

Ben Stiller (THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS), Jenna Elfman (EdTV), and Edward Norton (FIGHT CLUB) star in KEEPING THE FAITH, a sexy romantic comedy so fresh and funny, you'll fall head over heels in love! Jake Schram (Stiller) and Brian Finn (Norton) are single, successful, extremely popular guys who have been best friends since, well, forever. They are about to be reunited with their other best childhood buddy -- the feisty, lanky tomboy, Anna (Elfman). Anna has grown into a high-powered workaholic beauty whose reentry into their lives turns this old circle of friends into a love triangle -- a very complicated one at that, because Jake's a rabbi and Brian is a priest. But have faith -- this gem is going to steal your heart.

By Benjamin J Burgraff VINE VOICE on October 18, 2000
Format: DVD
'Keeping the Faith' is one of the funniest, smartest, warmest comedies of the last several years, and marks a wonderful directorial debut for costar Edward Norton. It works on many levels; as a loving look at relationships, on the common ground Judaism and Catholicism shares in compassion towards people, in embracing love, no matter what obstacles might arise...and it does all this while respecting different religions, which makes this a very unique and special film!
Norton and Ben Stiller play lifelong friends, who, as children, meet a fabulous, funny girl who they bond with. After she moves away, the two grow up, becoming a priest and a rabbi...then the girl returns, as a successful businesswoman, and the friendship is renewed...until romance enters the picture!
Each character is unique and likeable; Norton is a sweet, funny klutz, endearing in his awkwardness; Stiller is compassionate and quick-witted, dealing with his Temple's matchmaking efforts with wry humor; Jenna Elfman (who has NEVER been lovelier onscreen) is both wise and vulnerable, and totally believable as a person both guys would fall in love with.
Major issues are addressed in the film (a Priest's vow of celibacy, interfaith marriages, religious discrimination), and are dealt with and resolved in such a positive, loving manner that you wonder why these issues ever BECOME problems! All this reflects well on Edward Norton, who shows remarkable sensitivity as both a cowriter and director!
The supporting cast is marvelous; Anne Bancroft is fabulous as Stiller's mother, Eli Wallach and Ron Rifkin, as a rabbi and synagogue leader, respectively, are equally good; director Milos Forman is terrific as Father Havel, Norton's mentor.

I have a bone to pick with just about every movie critic in the known universe. Each and every one of them acts shocked and dismayed when a romantic comedy turns out to be *gasp!* predictible, and then they feel the need to make snide comments about the acting, the plot, the storyline...
What gets lost in all this is the fact that many highly intelligent people enjoy watching these movies because they are FUN. Even if I know (or think I know) how a movie will turn out in the end, I can still have FUN while I'm getting there. You know what fun is, right? It's that thing where you're happy and not uptight--you remove the stick from your butt for awhile and just ENJOY yourself. What a concept. And I was in the mood to enjoy myself one night, didn't want to think too deeply, so I decided to rent "Keeping The Faith."
Wow. I have to state here that I'm pretty wary of movies that portray "religious" people of any kind, because I'm sick and tired of stereotypes. Let me assure my fellow "religious" people: this movie doesn't wuss out. The catholic Priest isn't an uptight jerk, and he isn't a total saint. He's *shock" Edward Norton: a NICE GUY who feels called to his work and wants to make a difference. The Rabbi isn't some wise old guy who's used as a plot device to deliver either crucial advice or comic relief. Instead, he's Ben Stiller--a pretty nice younger guy who's torn between pleasing others and doing what's right for himself. The priest and the rabbi have been friends since childhood. When another childhood friend comes back into their lives after years of separation, they both fall in love with her. Oops.

This is a movie about a priest named Brian Finn (Edward Norton) and a rabbi named Jake Schram (Ben Stiller) in New York City. They're young, popular, down to earth, and are totally committed to their respective religions. Before that, when they were kids, there was this girl--a totally cool chick just like them, down to earth and decent. The three of them were like peas and carrots together but she had to move away, upsetting at first, but ultimately making Brian and Jake best friends by themselves. They're adults now, and she comes back to NYC to visit for business, and things get VERY interesting. If you've ever had the whole "is [s]he Jewish?" dilemna, you'll love this movie. Even if you haven't, this romantic comedy breaks all cliches and tells a most unique story. Ben Stiller and Edward Norton, if you're reading this, keep doing these kinds of movies! Pop some popcorn, invite your boyfriend or girlfriend over, and put on this movie! You'll love it.

They say Faith can move mountains. They say Faith can get you through the turmoil of life. What happens though when your Faith in God runs headlong into your Love of a woman? Can the two exist if the woman is of a different Faith? Can it exist if you are the leader of your denomination? Ed Norton's directorial debut examines this in what could be a serious movie but is a very funny romantic movie.
We start with Father Brian Finn, Ed Norton, stumbling drunk and landing in an all night bar. He ends up telling the story to a world-weary bartender who claims to have heard it all. The bartender knew he had heard it all when it started with, "There's this Priest and a Rabbi..." Actually the story doesn't start there though.
Approximately 16 years early Brian Finn and Jacob Schram, two best friends, met their soul mate Anna Riley. She was the kind of girl all boys wanted to be around, cute but not too girlish. These three are never seen without each other. Disaster strikes 2 years later when Anna's father is moved across the country to New York. The three occasionally keep in touch through letters but think that their partnership is over.
We jump to the future where the two boys have taken interesting jobs. It seems Brian and Jake, Ben Stiller, have always had a calling and that calling was to preach the word. Brian has become a Priest and Jake is now a Rabbi. Both are the hottest things to hit their respective Church's and are shaking things up with contemporary ideas. They are even jokingly known in the streets as "The God Squad." They reach some opposition from the old-line members of their respective congregations however the increased numbers at each service is hard to argue with.
