About The Film
Edward Norton, Ben Stiller, and Jenna Elfman co-star in this sweet-natured spiritual comedy about an unusual romantic triangle between a rabbi and priest who fall for the same woman. Friends since childhood, both Brian (Norton) and Jake (Stiller) have become servants of God, each innovating ways to fill their sanctuaries with worshippers. Their lives are thrown a curveball with the return of Anna (Elfman), who has grown into a high-powered workaholic beauty. Both men find themselves enchanted, sparking rivalry and personal dilemmas. A stellar supporting cast includes Anne Bancroft, Milos Forman, Ron Rifkin, and Eli Wallach. Norton’s directorial debut is a fresh and comical date movie, as well as a valentine to New York’s religious and cultural diversity.
