While a hypersophisticated 15-year-old Manhattan prep schooler harbors a crush on his stepmother (Sigourney Weaver), the stepmom’s swinging, single best friend (wickedly funny Bebe Neuwirth) reaps unexpected benefits a la Mrs. Robinson. This ingratiating romantic coming-of-age comedy is easy, rather than astonishing, and the territory owes a steep debt to Rushmore. But the mood is courtly, the performances superb, the made-in-New York City details zingy – and that ain’t chopped liver.
