FLIRTING WITH DISASTER
1996, Miramax, 92 min, USA, Dir: David O. Russell

Hoping to better understand his own upbringing, Ben Stiller piles his new baby, wife Patricia Arquette and adoption agency case worker Téa Leoni into a car and sets out on a cross-country odyssey in search of his birth parents, finding mistaken identity, misdirected advances and more along the way. Mary Tyler Moore, George Segal, Alan Alda and Lily Tomlin costar in this hilarious modern screwball. "FLIRTING thrusts you into a sexy, giddy maelstrom of confusion, mischance and misadventure that gets funnier and funnier as it goes along." - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
