Movie Info

Benjamin Fiedler (Daryl Sabara) has a lot to be nervous about; his bar mitzvah is fast approaching, and his parents (Jeremy Piven, Jami Gertz) are caught up in plans to make his party even more lavish than the one the Steins threw for their son. Amid his family's debate over whether to invite an estranged grandfather (Garry Marshall), the youth solves the problem by arranging for Grandpa to arrive two weeks early.

    Not bad. Pretty forgettable movie though.

    Keeping Up with the Steins is about trip to his bar mitzvah party with his dysfunctional family in one house. Good plot and good acting most of the time Its kind of a cult, spoof and comedy mix into to one. This film is making fun of how too many Jewish families see a bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah not as a coming of age for their son or daughter, but rather as an excuse to throw outrageously lavish parties. It had one good song at the very end. Cons Lacking acting sometimes Lacking good music some times. Weird

    A very nice family film but nothing especial about the film. It's just okay, nothing especial. Funny at times though. The story deserves half a star. Very unique. If you want to watch a movie in father's day this is the one. The whole movie is about fatherhood. The best parts of the movie were the "realization" part, the bar mitzvah scene. People will learn something from this movie. A good family film.

    entertaining look at a familys atempts to put on a great bar mitzvah, a jewish ceremony, and the kids dealings with the process, jerem piven turns up as the father, playijng another agent, good to see after entourage, but nowhere near as slimeball, and jamie gertz, looking stunning after years going nowhere, and film maker gary marshall as a old randy granfather, a good watch
