Jeremy Piven, Jami Gertz, Garry Marshall, Daryl Hannah, Daryl Sabara October 31, 2006 DVD Run time: 90 mins. Aspect ratio: 1.85: 1. Originally released: 2006. Language: ... English. Former Rental While intending to bridge the gap between boyhood and manhood, bar mitzvahs can often more closely resemble extravagant sweet-sixteen parties than actual religious ceremonies. It is this trend that forms the basis of KEEPING UP WITH THE STEINS, a family comedy about what happens when a Hollywood agent uses his son's bar mitzvah as a vehicle for outspending his nemesis. Jeremy Piven perfectly inhabits the role of Adam Fiedler, a character strikingly similar to that of his star turn as Ari Gold on the HBO series ENTOURAGE. Energetic and fast-talking, Adam approaches his son Benjamin's bar mitzvah in the same way he deals with business, stopping at nothing to make his son's party more excessive than anything thrown by the competition. But will this conspicuous spending achieve anything, aside from alienating Adam's son Read more Show Less

Overview

The competition heats up as a young man on the cusp of adulthood in Brentwood, CA, prepares for his upcoming bar mitzvah, and his father strives to outdo the gargantuan coming-of-age bash recently thrown by his number-one nemesis, in a madcap tale of Hebrew rivalry from actor-turned-director Scott Marshall. Benjamin Fiedler Daryl Sabara is about to become a man, though the prospect of reciting a language he doesn't even really know in front of a temple full of strangers is so daunting that it makes him wish he could just stay a boy and write the whole thing off. As if his personal peccadilloes weren't enough to rack Benjamin's nerves, his father, Adam Jeremy Piven, and mother, Joanne Jami Gertz, are determined to send Benjamin into the adult world in true style. Recently, Adam's rival agent, Arnie Stein Larry Miller, threw down the gauntlet for his own son's bar mitzvah by hosting a no-holds-barred bash that made New Year's Eve in Times Square look like cake-and-coffee day at the retirement community, and ultra-competitive Adam is determined to prove that he can top that now-legendary party. When Adam's aging, hippy-dippy father, Irwin Garry Marshall, rolls into town in a broken-down RV with his dizzy young girlfriend, Sandy Daryl Hannah, however, it appears as if all of his plans to out-class Arnie Stein may have been for naught.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Mate a slew of veteran TV comedy actors with a now-archetypal big-screen plot device -- the travails of an inflated family celebration -- and you have the makings of an amiable comedy. Jeremy Piven (the crafty über-agent Ari Gold from Entourage) and Jami Gertz play Adam and Joanne Fiedler, loving parents determined to make the upcoming bar mitzvah of their son Ben (Spy Kids’ Daryl Sabara) every bit as lavish as a similar event staged by their extravagant friends. Ben isn’t looking forward to the big day, partly because he’s having trouble learning his prayers, but he plans on using the occasion to reconcile his tightly wrapped dad and his irrepressible grandfather Irwin (Garry Marshall). Marshall pretty much runs away with the film whenever he’s on screen, but Piven also has some sharp moments, as do small-screen favorites Doris Roberts (as Ben’s grandmother) and Cheryl Hines (as an excitable event planner). Keeping Up may resonate best with those familiar with Jewish traditions and family structures, but there’s enough entertainment value here to satisfy audiences of all religious persuasions. The film is, after all, about the importance of family, and that’s a universal theme.
