Synopsis

Dustin Hoffman and Lily Tomlin lead an all-star cast including Jude Law, Naomi Watts and Mark Walhberg in this outrageous comedy from director/co-writer David O. Russell (Three Kings). Kindhearted but confused activist Andrew Markovski hires a pair of screwball "existential detectives" (Hoffman and Tomlin) to help him find the meaning of life. All the while, a sexy, French author (Isabelle Huppert) is trying to throw a wrench in their plan by seducing andrew's mind and body.

Reviews

Roger Moore Orlando Sentinel | October 22, 2004

A rewarding- frustrating smart-silly comedy of pretentious- modest ambitions.

Terry Lawson Detroit Free Press | October 15, 2004

You have to give everyone involved credit for mounting a joke that, if not of Dadaist proportions, should prove pretty funny to everyone except the rubes who wander in expecting to see something they can comprehend.

Lisa Kennedy Denver Post | October 15, 2004

It's a mad, mad, mad, mad, meaningful world, indeed.

Andrew Sarris New York Observer | October 14, 2004

It is difficult for me to describe how sweet and buoyant I found the film, despite its seemingly excessive stylization.

Eleanor Ringel Gillespie Atlanta Journal-Constitution | October 14, 2004

Along with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, it's the most playful, intelligent and original comedy of the year.

Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle | October 08, 2004

There's ambition here, as well as a shaggy brilliance and a rare willingness on the part of a director to work out his questions in front of us, on film.

Teresa Wiltz Washington Post | October 08, 2004

With razor-sharp performances, zingy one-liners, broad slapstick humor and a message of sorts, there's enough to distract the viewer from becoming hopelessly lost in the lint-filled chaos that is the umbilicus.
