Overview
Written and directed by David O. Russell (Three Kings, Spanking The Monkey), this hysterically original comedy was cheered by critics and audiences nationwide. In a quest to find his biological parents, Mel Coplin (Ben Stiller – Duplex, Meet the Parents) – joined by his wife (Patricia Arquette – Human Nature, Holes) and a sexy adoption counselor (Téa Leoni – People I Know, Hollywood Ending) – embarks on a cross-country search for his "roots." Yet as he careens from one outrageous situation to another, Mel finds himself tempted by the seductive counselor – even as his wife starts a flirtation of her own! By the time they meet up with his free-spirited birth parents, the whole situation is spinning hysterically out of control! Also starring Mary Tyler Moore, Alan Alda and Lily Tomlin, this hilarious hit is sure to entertain everyone!
