  1. Karthik's rating of the film American Matchmaker

    Farcical, uneven film but an absolute American cultural treasure. It's a pity only about 70% of the Yiddish is translated into the subs, cheating us of such splendid yiddishisms as the mother's characterization of her daughter's dates as "various prolonged ordeals/illnesses" ("vershiedene vershleppte krenken"). And "Do you have any corns" as a come-on with "No, I only have bunions" as the put-down?
