    The daughter of a crazy Spanish Jewish family comes home with her new fiancé, who claims to be a proud Palestinan. A mixture of slapstick comedy and family drama with heavy political and religious undertones; an ambitious project that ends up feeling inconsistent due to the poor script and the unappealing characters that leave the audience feeling cold.

    Definitely an entertaining comedy with solid writing and a great cast. But it's another movie that ends up peaking way too early. It's also another movie that thinks it's more clever than it actually is, and at the same time the characters end up reading like something out of a more adult sitcom. There's no real character progression, with the exception of the mother and the father's relationship and Rafi and Leni's eventual 'discussion' about Jewish and Palestinian issues at the end. And this scene is another thing I have an issue with. It's left until the very end of the movie, so the movie is pretty much a build-up to that moment but when they finally have it, the conversation ends up feeling so forced and contrived that it may have been better if they just left it off. It was a good idea, but it just didn't work in execution. And, again, I liked this movie. It was fun to watch, it had funny moments, though, again, I think the movie tries too hard to be funny. It has a great cast and good enough writing that the movie is still good in spite of all the problems I had with it.

    A good portion of this movie was just wacky fun! It is chock full of unusual situations, and funny characters. But then it tends to go overboard on the "crazy and funny" family situations...too the point of stupid, not funny. HOWEVER, the movie as a whole is definitely worth checking out. There are some hysterical situations that I will remember for some time.

    Some scenes were funny. The story was weak, but ok. It reminds me those comedies with Ben Stiller.

    Some laugh out loud moments with a serious theme that is not taken so seriously.
