Movie Info

The life of an independent young New York woman is turned topsy turvy when her traditional Jewish grandmother employs a yente (professional matchmaker) to find the girl an appropriate husband. Unfortunately, the last thing the young lady wants is to be saddled with a spouse and she resists the advances of the kindly street vendor the yente appoints as her mate. But this is a romantic comedy and in time the young woman finds herself standing defenseless in the face of true love.

...an affable, thoroughly charming little romance that benefits substantially from Amy Irving's compelling performance.

Sweet rom-com based on a play (which usually makes - as it does here - for a good script) about two Jewish New Yorkers being set up by the local match-maker. Starring Amy Irving, 12 years on from Carrie, and Peter Riegert in his appealing Local Hero era, this was the favourite film of an ex-boyfriend... awwww...

I had to watch this for a class, and I thought it was great. I could relate to Izzy and her tendency to gravitate towards the wrong kind of guys. I hope I find my "pickle man" soon.
