Directed by John Birchler
Sarah is a nice Jewish girl with a problem: her parents want her married to a nice Jewish boy. They have never met her boyfriend, a WASP executive named Chris Cringle. (Don’t blame the director; blame the playwright.)
She tells them she is dating a Jewish doctor and they insist on meeting him. She plans a dinner party and, over the heated protests of Chris, employs an escort service to send her a Jewish date to play the role of Dr. Steinberg. Instead, they send Bob Schroeder, an aspiring actor, and a Christian, who agrees to perform the impersonation. Happily, he is extremely convincing in the role, and Sarah’s parents are enraptured. Soon, even Sarah falls for Bob. Comedic complications ensue.
