Plot summary

Alby Sherman (Elliot Gould) is a Jewish man whose father dies when he was young. He and his mother (Shelley Winters) run a delicatessen in Brooklyn, but Alby dreams of opening his own restaurant in Manhattan, a project which is very expensive. Finding the perfect location, a restaurant whose owner is moving to another location, he asks his wealthy Uncle Benjamin (Sid Caesar) to lend him the money. His uncle imposes an odious blackmail on him: Alby will have the money only if he leaves his "shikse" Catholic girlfriend (Margaux Hemingway) and get married to a "nice Jewish girl" (Carol Kane).
