Prime. Feature film. (2005, 105 mins) IMDB
he's a Jewish mother and a therapist.
Her patient is a successful career woman in NYC, 37, and definitely not Jewish.
Then there's the 23 year old son who is finding his way.
The son and love interest meet. They hit it off. The problem is the three haven't put it together. The mother hears her patient tell about her son not knowing it's him. The patient doesn't know her therapist is her lover's mother. This coincidence continues until the therapist realizes it has to be her son she's been talking about and eventually they all know what is going on.
The film has the usual boy meets girl, they split back together and split again and the last time for good. That's not the happy ending of a romantic comedy we want to see.
The film is really an excuse to have all this Jewish non-sense and for the patient to say things to the mother that seem funny when we know one thing and they don't. That part is milked too long.
Of course it isn't realistic for a 37 year old woman to stay attached to a 23 year old guy. The later is still a child.
