Night 4 of “If Hallmark Made Hanukkah Holiday Movies Starring Adam Sandler.

NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MENSCH

Rabbi Gold (Adam Sandler) travels to visit his children at Hanukkah. As he checks into his hotel, he is shocked to learn that his childhood rival, Rabbi Levy (Steve Buschemi), is also staying at that hotel, visiting his children for Hanukkah.

Due to a booking error and convenient plot devices, the men have to share a room while dealing with their complex feelings about this holiday – Rabbi Gold worries about the commercialization, Rabbi Levy worries he won’t be able to find the perfect Hanukkah gift for his very ill grandson. Both have to work through the 30-year-old pain of Levy making it into Klezmer band regionals while Gold didn’t.

But the real miracle of the holiday would be if these two can get along for seven days and eight nights before whipping out the clarinets for the inevitable playing of Hava Nagila.
