Murray is the bankrupted owner of a rare book store in Brooklyn . He’s forced to close the family business and he needs to come up with something else for income. Fioravante works in a florist shop and he’s an attractive man. This fact gets Murrays mind working when he thinks about his wealthy female dermatologist Dr. Parker. Murray proposes to become a “manager” for Fioravante with Dr. Parker as their first client. Murray will take 40% and Fioravante will take 60% but they will split tips 50-50. They are doing well until Fioravante meets Avigal and they fall in love. She is the widow of a rabbi and the Jewish community will make their relationship difficult for them.
I would not consider this to be a comedy and I didn’t see anything funny? I did not understand and it’s not explained why Allen lives with Jill Scott and her four boys? Why is there a scene with boy’s hair being combed for head lice? Head lice are a parent’s nightmare? The odd-ball mix-up of scenarios seems weird? 2 ½* (This movie is so-so)
