Young orthodox Jew Mordechai Wolkenbruch, called Motti, has a serious problem: All the women, whom his mame introduces to him as potential wives, look just like her. Whereas Laura, his fellow student, does not at all – but unfortunately she is a schikse: She wears pants, has a nice tuches, drinks gin and tonic and swears. Motti begins to have doubts: Is the predetermined path given by his parents the road for him to follow? His obedience towards his mother’s disturbing methods starts to fade, whereas at the same time his passion for Laura grows. So things take their course. And very soon Motti comes to the conclusion: even schiksen can be totally nuts.

User Reviews: Ten or so years ago, My Big Fat Greek Wedding was all the rage. Think of this as the Jewish version. It’s funny, sweet and touching. Be it Greek, Jewish, Italian – or any ethnic group that has strict controls and ideas about their families and children, this movie touches us all. As for me – My Big Fat Greek Wedding was spot on.
