Ira & Abby ★★ 2006 (R)

Jewish Ira (Messina) is the neurotic, underachieving son of two analysts (Klein, Light) while shiksa Abby (Westfeldt) is a free spirit, thanks to her hipster parents (Willard, Conroy). They impulsively get married but discover exes and in-laws, affairs and insecurities, and too many therapists cause them lots of trouble. Manhattan looks great, the parents are great, but the flick is Woody Allenlite via an episode of “Dharma & Greg” with swearing and overt sexual content. 105m/C DVD . Jennifer Westfeldt, Judith Light, Jason Alexander, Fred Willard, Chris Messina, Frances Conroy, Robert Klein, Darrell Hammond, Chris Parnell; D: Robert Cary; W: Jennifer Westfeldt; C: Harlan Bosmajian; M: Marcelo Zarvos.
