and if He cannot turn their hearts
may He turn their ankles
that we may know them by their limping.

Synopsis: A middle aged writer of pornographic novels meets and falls in love with a sixteen year old school girl. This alone is cause for concern but when the couple get married and move to America, the trouble (and fun) really begins.


Reaction: A bit odd, but there are quite a few humorous moments.
