Keeping the Faith

Directed by Edward Norton

And Norton plays every scene too broadly, too loudly; you expect everyone to break into song at the end of every scene -- which they actually do a couple of times. (Indeed, the film ends with a scene set in an interfaith karaoke coffee bar for seniors, where Barry Manilow's "Ready to Take a Chance Again," the love theme from Foul Play, coos over the loud speakers. Really, I'm not making this up.) In the end, the film's point is so clear you can see right through it: Hey, guess what: It's possible for Jews and Catholics to get along! They can even love each other, in the most biblical sense! Jesus wept.

Opens April 14.
