Keeping the Faith 

Judging from the previews, Keeping the Faith looks like a two-hour "a priest and a rabbi walk into a bar" joke. Granted, a priest does walk into a bar, but the punchline is a lot more interesting than any moldy comedy routine. Edward Norton (who also directs) plays a New York City priest whose best friend since childhood (Ben Stiller) has become a rabbi. Enter Jenna Elfman as an old school chum who breezes back into town after 15 years and unwittingly causes both men to fall in love with her. Norton and screenwriter Stuart Blumberg aren't above the occasional cheap laugh, but they also deal with "important issues," such as faith and friendship, with surprising depth. This is one movie whose previews don't begin to do it justice. (PG-13) Rating: 8
