Duddy Kravitz is an irrestible young Jewish man in 1948 Montreal. Duddy is driven by an insatiable desire to be a "somebody". He cheats, schemes and connives to buy a large parcel of land. He uses the girl who loves him, he forges cheques and he lies. He is enormously proud of his shortcuts. In his race for success, Duddy learns many hard lessons. There's a little bit of Duddy in all of us.--Container.

As a movie, it's not great, as there is so many deeper things that are glossed over in the movie.
The best part of it is Richard Dreyfuss's performance as Duddy, because he does a great job as a character that is hard to play.
It's worth one watch for his performance.
