1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Kelly Wadsworth on Jan. 17 2002
Format: VHS Tape
Every once in a while, I come across a film who's central characters are so honest in their look, sound and feel, that they could easily be long lost members of my own family. Crossing Delancey is one of those rare films. One that I can easily watch over and over, particularly when I need a little 'pick me up'. Peter Riegert's 'Sam' is so charming and genuine in his demeanor that 'Izzy', once the two are introduced, stands little chance of escaping back to her artificial and mostly barren existence among the cultured elite.
Having been born and raised in a city tenement, I remember thinking back then in much the same way as Izzy. Given the opportunity, it was a place from which I wanted to be far removed. Izzy makes the classic mistake of confusing her need to better herself and her surroundings with her almost compulsive need to divorce herself from the very people who know, love and best understand her. Her journey back to the realization that, regardless of where she lives and works, Izzy will always be from the same cut of cloth as the people from whom she had been trying to escape, is ultimately what makes this movie worth watching.
In most films, there's a standout moment or a scene, and Crossing Delancey is no exception. Blessed with a great cast (Izzy's grandmother steals the show), the film is riddled with humorous and sometimes very funny moments. However, it is one of the film's more serious and unsettling moments (I refer to the classic scene at the eatery where the 'has been' torch singer with the tip can appears to sing directly to Izzy), that seems to capture, for me, the magic of Crossing Delancey. Overall, a charming winner of a film that is made significantly better by a wonderful and offbeat Roche sisters soundtrack.

This is a wonderful movie. I have seen it lots of times on VHS and am so pleased that it is coming out on DVD! Love the "Pickle Man"!

Amy Irving...where are you? You're such a great talent!

"Crossing Delancey" is presumed at first a romance, and it is. Deeper than the romance is a search for meaning. This two-level movie is funny with an undercurrent of a genuine plot stronger than the usual romantic comedy.

Part of the ego-driven, superficial but pretentious New York literary scene, Isabelle Grossman brings together writers and other literati for soirees feting the personalities behind the books.

Isabelle, or Izzy, herself is not a writer, but feels she is important because of the names and numbers in her Rolodex. She works hard and late, only to go home to an empty apartment. Her only love is accommodating the occasional lonely nights of a friend who fights with his wife. She tolerates his affections in what amounts to be no more than a recurring one-night stand.

Although Izzy's emptiness surrounds her, she never notices it, not even when her grandmother has a matchmaker attempt setting her up with Sam, a neighbor bachelor. Unfortunately for Sam, her intentions are set on Anton, a dashing, but caddish author whose books are bestsellers. He only wants her to appease his desires, and has no love for her, but she is blind to his true intentions. She curtly rejects another date with Sam.

With a single romantic signal, Pickleman Sam, the man she pushed away in a matchmaking dinner now effectively woos her heart into confusion. He had noticed her years ago and now happily accepted the chance to be introduced by the matchmaker. When he tells her this, a spark is lit. He isn't the suave author she begs for, and his lifestyle is more simple than those whose books are reviewed in the New York Times. She fumbles opportunity after opportunity to connect with Sam, but he is patient.

This urban love story stars Amy Irving as a single Jewish woman who is balanced between two worlds: the literary life of the Upper West Side in Manhattan where she works in an upscale bookstore and the ethnic hotbed of the Lower East Side where her yenta of a grandmother is forever trying to arrange a marriage "with a nice Jewish boy."
Granny wants to fix her up with a quiet guy who runs a neighbornood pickle stand - and Amy's not having any of it. I mean, a PICKLE SELLER?? Come on, Granny!
But watch what happens...
A traditional romance, lovingly told. Enjoy it.

Why don't they make movies like this anymore? It's a real story- a real romance that everyone can relate to. This film just exudes warmth, humour and just a whole lot of GOOD VIBES. The cast is amazing- no 2D Tinstletown types here. So if you want to get away from the highly improbable, sacharin sweet Meg Ryan comedy/romances of this world- just sit back with a hot cup of chocolate and watch this movie.
