Additional Info

Ron is a Jew who has been shacked up with a gentile girl for a year, and she is much his junior. (She is twenty-three and he turns out to be not forty-two but 50). The reasons he won't marry her include alimony to his ex-wife and his deeply religious Jewish mother. So, she will convert. The ensuing comedy shows her trying to master the rituals, and becoming more Jewish than Ron himself. The deliveryman scene involves getting him to turn on the lights and tear up the toilet tissue on the Sabbath, when they are not allowed to do either after sundown. And then comes the examination by the rabbis. And finally, in comes Ron's mother, who's eloping to Las Vegas, and who isn't very Jewish after all. After some explanations about Ron's lack of responsibility, the old and young couples elope together to Las Vegas, and things end happily for Ron and the Convertible Girl.
