Keeping up with the Steins

Jeremy Piven and Jami Gertz star in this mostly innocuous sitcom about a Jewish family who goes to outrageous lengths to make their son's bar mitzvah more impressive than that of their rich neighbors. When lampooning the excesses of modern, upwardly mobile parents, Keeping up with the Steins works. When it veers off into mawkish father-son sentiment (courtesy of Gary Marshall, costar and father of the film's director Scott Marshall), the film becomes rather self-indulgent. 99 minutes PG-13.
