Keeping the Faith

Rated 3.0 Reshaping one of the world’ s most shopworn jokes (“A priest walks into a bar”) into a two-hour movie was not the safest career move for actor-turned-director Edward Norton (Fight Club), but he hasn’t embarrassed himself. This flawed but entertaining Manhattan romantic comedy shows what happens when three childhood friends reunite and love blossoms. Edward Norton plays a progressive priest, Ben Stiller a rabbi and Jenna Elfman a workaholic executive in a light comedy that says people won’t find happiness in marriage, religion or life itself unless they accept them as choices that one keeps making over and over again.
