Movie Haiku:Based on Mordechi Richlerís final novel about a guy with "women problems" coming-of-age in Jewish Montreal. Barney (Giamatti) may have his flaws, but he''''''''s definitely a mensch! Hoffman & Pike provide excellent back-up as father "Izzy" & 3rd wife "Miriam." Driver & Speedman also shine as wife #2 ("The Second Mrs. P.") & best buddy "Bernard ''''''''Boogy'''''''' Moscovitch."
