Crossing Delancey. From 1988. Seriously.
Hubby and I love this movie! Perhaps it's because it's from the year we started dating. Perhaps it's the big dose of New York City Jewish culture. (I grew up in New York, and hubby's mom spent her young years as a jewish girl in NYC.) It might be because the Pickle Man is one of our favorite characters ever...he has some great romantic lines. It might be the hysterical matchmaker and her indigestion. We love the endearing and funny Bubbie (grandma). It could be the quirky soundtrack. It definitely has to do with the sweet storyline. It's probably all of the above and more.
For the record, I don't think it has anything to do with Amy Irving's hair. Her hair in this movie is everything I don't want my curly locks to look like. Just sayin.
Hubby and I can quote (just about) the whole thing--yet find most people have missed this one.
Maybe we are weird--but it's an all-time favorite over here. Check it out and let me know what you think!
