Written and directed by David O. Russell, this hysterically original comedy was cheered by critics and audiences nationwide. In a quest to find his biological parents, Mel Coplin - joined by his wife and a sexy adoption counselor 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.
Ben Stiller, Patricia Arquette, Tea Leoni, and Alan Alda.
