“Portnoy’s Complaint” meets “The Front Page.” A naïve kid with oppressive Jewish parents gets into journalism for all the wrong reasons, finds himself in over his head on a big city daily, but manages a modest success anyway. It’s a true story populated with swashbuckling 1960s newspaper types, parents with nutty hang-ups, a few celebrities, and an occasional scoundrel.
