Full of fun. Woody Allen was a riot with yet another psychologically well tuned movie. I had so much fun with this movie I almost peed in my pants. John Turturro as well as Woody Allen showed emotional intelligence where one with a challenge in that department can take a few lessons. Sofia Vergara was absolutely incredible, hot and very funny. Lev Schreiber is always one of my favorites. 4 star in fun and laughter.

Fluffy (Jewish) souflé, anyone? A guilty pleasure.

A wonky premise, a love interest, a few Woody zingers, stylish setting and gestures and you've got a flick as good as most of Allen's own.
Why do movie female Johns usually get emotional while male Johns are slam-bam-thank-you-ma'am, bye-bye? (Richard Gere excepted).

Fun, light-hearted, entertaining flick. I found both Woody Allen and John Turturro's characters to be fun and worth watching for 90 minutes.

This is a poor man's Woody Allen script, scribed by Jon Turturro, who has written himself in with a role as a attractive paid stud to three beauteous women. I guess, given the chance, I would do the same thing, and no doubt be just as unbelievable. Turturro falls in love with one of them, who seems to be in love with him, and then she is not, for a fuzzy reason, perhaps being she is a Hassidic widow and he's and Italian agnostic. His co-conspirator pimp, Allen, seems tired, as do his lame quips. I'm not sure there is any reason to watch this, except for gawking at the gals.

Complete waste of time says it all! These two old men and their sexual obsession made me cringe. I watched it for about 15 minutes and that was all I could take. Woody Allen's writing and direction is usually very creative and witty. This was written and directed by John Turturro and Woody should never have agreed to do this.

Complete waste of time. Not funny at all. Not a "Woody Allen" movie.

Funny but very thin story.

I enjoyed this movie better than most of the recent Woody Allen offerings. Actually, I guess this is really a John Turturro movie: life in the Big Apple: New York city. Who knew there was a uniformed Jewish police enforcing behavior? And, the beautiful wife of the rabbi wasn't allowed to read books, and had to wear a wig called a Sheitel to cover her real hair whenever she went out of the house. All handled in this movie with a wry humor and "we all gotta live together" approach. Woody teaching the Rabbi's kids how to play baseball was priceless. A feel good movie.

Hardly any credible memorable line ... except when Woody was boxed in by a bunch of men:

Murray: [Shomrim patrollers surround him] What is this? I think you've got the wrong guy. I've already been circumcised!
