Overview
Lenny (Woody Allen) and Amanda (Helena Bonham Carter) have an adopted son Max who turns out to be brilliant. Lenny becomes obsessed with finding his real parents because they too must be brilliant. When he finds that Linda Ash (Mira Sorvino) is Max' real mother, Lenny is disappointed. Linda is a prostitute and porn star. On top of that, she is quite possibly the dumbest person Lenny has ever met. Interwoven is a wonderful Greek chorus linking the story with the story of Oedipus.
