'Marek Elliot. You're 28, you're a big-shot solicitor, you come from a nice family. What more can a Jewish girl want? Marek Elliot is the perfect catch - just ask his mother. She's determined to see her beloved only son married off to a nice Jewish girl. Marek's finding the dating game a little harder. It may be because he works in a dead-end law firm, or because there isn't a Jewish girl in the whole of north-west London who hasn't at least heard of his mother's dragon-like reputation. The local Jewish princesses are finding their princes elsewhere...Then Marek meets the sweet-natured Melanie, who fits all his mother's criteria. And Deborah who doesn't...Melanie would make the perfect bride. (And more importantly the perfect daughter-in-law.) Fun-loving Deborah isn't even Jewish. So Marek does what any self-respecting man would do: he two-times them. His best-friend Rachel is disgusted and, with his mother itching to put ten years of reading You and Your Wedding to good use, Marek's at the mercy of more women than he knows how to handle. The crunch is coming. Is he really the 'good Jewish boy' his mother insists he is? How long can he have his cake and eat bagels too?
