Advised by a gangster to get a “cover job,” a Muslim teenager (Malachi Kirby) whose goal in life is to become a pot dealer finds the best of both worlds by selling medicated challah at an unwitting Orthodox Jew’s (Jonathan Pryce) kosher bakery. In no time, his efforts breathe new life into the asthmatic 100-year-old business; everyone in the neighborhood gets hooked. Inventiveness wanes as the novelty frazzles. But the kid and the Yid play so well opposite each other — Pryce is incontrovertible to the point you’d swear his mother kept two sets of dinnerware — that it’s almost easy to forgive the shameless strokes of a frummer bouncing on a yoga ball, dancing lessons with the lad to help woo landlady Pauline Collins, and a hokey climactic chase better suited to a Kevin James tragedy. A culture-clash comedy at once so-bad-it’s-good and so-good-it’s-bad that it kept me laughing throughout. (2015) — Scott Marks
