      I found this film really enjoyable, and a tearjerker too.

      And in my humble opinion, a much better romantic comedy than a lot of Stiller’s recent outings - e.g. Along Came Polly, Meet the Fockers etc.

      Ben Stiller and Ed Norton play a Rabbi and a Priest respectively. They are known as the ‘god squad’ in their ‘hood (most likely a nickname they gave


      themselves). They are best of friends, support each other in everything, nothing will come between them, etc. Until Anna, a girl they befriended at school and haven’t seen since their childhood re-enters their lives and … yes, they both fall in love with her. Oops.

      It all starts to go a bit Pete Tong. [Wrong, for those not fluent in cockney rhyming slang]. Our ...


      • Priest struggles with his earthly desires, whilst our Rabbi starts an affair with Anna, but is meant to marry a good Jewish girl (and most of his congregation are forcing their eligible daughters on him).

        The acting is really good, natural and convincing - and there’s a childish and playful chemistry between Stiller, Norton and Jenna Elfman; you can definitely believe they are reunited childhood

        pals. Norton is surprisingly funny, and it seems a shame he hasn’t turned his hand to more comedy (watch out for his Rainman impression!) Stiller is also hilarious, but in a more refreshing and understated way ~ rather than being cheesily over-the-top, and deliberately over-acting the part for maxmimum laughs.

        If you’re fond of rom-coms then I highly recommend an evening in with this charming film!
