Funny and touching, a great film to watch on a rainy Saturday night.

This film is hilarious and yet poignant, as it focuses on a young Jewish man coming of age and falling in love with an older woman who is decidedly NOT Jewish and knows little of the young man's traditions. His mother is played by Meryl Streep and she does a terrific job of being an over-protective mother worried that her son may marry goy. There's a great twist to the plot that makes it all a wonderful, light-hearted look at what it means to become an adult.
