Keeping the Faith – 2 stars
Ed Norton’s clunky directorial debut about two childhood friends – a rabbi (Ben Stiller) and a priest (Norton) – who reconnect with a third, Jenna Elfman. Hijinx, romantic entanglements and hurt feelings ensue. A few funny moments, but Elfman’s hyper-active me-me-me-ism is distracting, and Stiller is lost as a romantic lead. Worse, Norton knows nothing of pace.
