As Suzie Gold's sister prepares to get married, it seems only natural that Suzie's thoughts should turn to the state of her own love-life. While her doting but dysfunctional family desperately want her to be happy - preferably by finding a good Jewish boy to settle down with - Suzie meets Darren, a boy from work, and they start a heady romance.Written by
First off, I'm not Jewish, but I am British. Several people here have written about how clichéd the characters and situations are in this movie. But remember that this is a comedy and so much comedy relies on cliché and exaggeration for humour. We're meant to see many of these characters are stereotypes and well, I enjoyed it! It made me laugh and entertained me. I think I can understand that if you are Jewish you might not like the idea of such caricatures as being given exposure, but lighten up - we know that what we're watching isn't meant to be a documentary on one section of our society.
This is just one of several comedy films centred around so-called 'communities' to appear from the UK in recent years. Previous film offerings such as 'East is East', 'Bend It Like Beckham', 'Anita and Me' and TV series like 'The Kumars' all rely on stereotypes for humour but have focused on the Asian community. I think (I hope) it is a sign of a healthy society that we can laugh together with entertainment like this.
