Oy Vey!

Saw Meryl Streep's fun, new movie "Prime" tonight. Streep plays a Jewish psychotherapist in New York City whose adult son falls in love with a shikse. And it turns out the shikse is a patient too!

Streep is worried because, like all good Jewish Mothers, she just wants her son to give her Jewish grandchildren before she dies (and is buried in Israel).

Some of the funniest scenes are when Uma Thurman (as the patient) describes intimate details about the man she's seeing to her therapist -- without realizing she's talking to the man's mother at the same time.

Paging Dr. Freud.
