Hey, I hope I'm not the only one that's seen this. It's a pretty good show. Very entertaining - no, the whole movie does not revolve around Edward Norton and the incense burner. Overall, a good show - drags a tiny bit in the second half, but it doesn't bring everything down.

Look for the Heroes of the Torah - good stuff!

I thought the movie was hilarious, a great date movie. Edward Norton and Ben Stiller are great together, and Jenna Elfman is definitely a hottie. You're right it did drag a bit, but other than that it was great, and the part with the "Heroes of the Torah" trading cards was genius.

This piece of shit only made a good trailer, and its a perfect "I'm going to get laid after this" movie. Whatever, just another formula flic from our friends at hollywood.

I only laughed once, the Karaoke guy.

I really enjoyed this film! It was funny but it did drag a bit in the second half. It's worth going to see though, two hours worth of fun! My favorite is the "Rain Man" part!

I was standing not too far from Ben Stiller when they filmed the scene in my theater. They were there for 3 days for that one short scene and the one inside the I-Max theater. I enjoyed the movie. The Rabbi trading cards was quite funny.

Didn't really expect myself to agree with Tyler any time soon, but I do on this one. What a peice of crap. Jokes given away in the preview, formula love triangle story, and Jewish jokes to stir up some laughs. I'm am sooooo disappointed in Ed Norton for this project. I understand it was his directorial debut, but come on. After 'Primal Fear', 'Everyone Says I Love You', 'American History X', and 'Fight Club', you do this? "I'll take 'Ways to Step Backwards' for $500, Alex." Hopefuly it gets off the screen and out of our minds soon.

Okay, so it wasn't a hard hitting drama as I would have expected from Edward Norton for his first film as director, but it was a good romantic comedy.

The three leads work well together (in fact, Norton is probably the least appealing) and the story is amusing, if not fall about laughing material.

Hopefully, Edward will discover a pair of scissors for his next film and take a leaf out of Woody Allen's book by not going over two hours in duration.

The music was well utilized also. The record stores have been caught out here as the film is quite a success and they have no soundtracks made for Australia. If you want to get one, it's or nothing for now.

Ed Norton was pretty good, but my favorite was Ralph Kramden.
