Ben Stiller, Jenna Elfman and Edward Norton star in Keeping The Faith, a sexy romantic comedy so fresh and funny, you'll fall head over heels in love! Jake Schram (Stiller) and Brian Finn (Norton) are single, successful, extremely popular guys who have been best friends since, well - forever. They are about to be reunited with their other best childhood buddy - the feisty, lanky tomboy, Anna (Elfman). Anna has grown into a high-powered, workaholic beauty whose reentry into their lives turns this old circle of friends into a love triangle - a very complicated one at that, because Jake's a rabbi and Brian is a priest.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the romcom Keeping the Faith may follow a Catholic priest and a Jewish rabbi -- best friends Brian (Edward Norton) and Jake (Ben Stiller), respectively -- but, godliness aside, Brian and Jake aren't the best role models. They look back fondly on their eighth grade "shoplifting club" and respond to heartbreak by getting very drunk and behaving boorishly, and one of them kisses a woman multiple times without her consent -- then yells at her when she doesn't reciprocate his feelings. Couples have sex (no nudity), and a kid refers to women as having "a nice rack" or "a nice ass." Other language includes exclamations of "holy s--t" and "Jesus," racist terms "mick" and "yid" used affectionately between characters, and the ableist phrase "the mentally retarded." Diversity can be found among minor characters; some depictions are shallow but positive, while others are cringey. But watch out for poor gender representation: Women are shown as silly and unintelligent except for the love interest, Anna (Jenna Elfman), a whip-smart corporate executive whose cautionary tale of being an overly ambitious woman feels sorely outdated.
