Movie Details

A former boy-band superstar falls for a rebellious Jewish girl while performing at the world's first kosher hotel/casino in this romantic comedy starring Adam Pascal. Back in the 1990s, Bobby Starr (Pascal) was sending teenage girls into a frenzy as the brooding front man of Eye Candy, one of the biggest boy bands ever. But fame is fleeting, and these days the former chart-topper falls back on nostalgia to maintain a steady income, frequently performing at birthday parties and bar mitzvahs for the children of his former fans. When Bobby begins his week-long stand at the Mazel Hotel and casino, the head rabbis are flummoxed -- how did this hip-swinging gentile land a gig performing for Orthodox Jews? The answer to this question lies with Rebekka, the daughter of the hotel's owner. Rebekka has harbored a crush on Bobby since childhood, and it was she who suggested her father hire the has-been to help open the hotel. As Bobby begins planning what he hopes will be his comeback show, Rebekka rails against her prearranged marriage to the son of a prestigious Kabbalah rabbi. After learning a few things about the Jewish faith with a little help from hip-hop-obsessed janitor Ty, Bobby quickly discovers just how seriously his new hosts take the Sabbath while forming a particularly close bond with the girl who was once his biggest fan. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
