Sarah is facing the age-old dilemma—what do you do when you know your parents won’t approve of the guy you’re dating. Sarah is a nice Jewish girl whose parents want her married to a nice Jewish boy. They have never met her boyfriend, a WASP executive name Chris Kringle. She tells them she is dating a Jewish doctor and they insist on meeting him. She plans a dinner party and, over the heated protest of Chris, employs an escort service to send her a Jewish date to be Dr. Steinberg. Instead they send Bob Schroeder, an aspiring actor, who agrees to perform the impersonation. Hilarity ensues in this charming family comedy with a tender heart.
