Crossing Delancey (1988)
What makes it a match: A woman hires a Jewish matchmaker to find her happily single granddaughter ( Amy Irving) a man (Peter Riegert). He's immediately taken with her, but she is more slow to warm.
Hired or Fired? Hired. There's something refreshing in a love story between regular folks like a bookstore employee and a pickle maker.
