FULL SYNOPSIS

A successful psychologist with a picture-perfect family and a best-selling self-help book that's fast racking up sales hires a dogged detective to investigate his brother's claim that he was actually adopted, only to watch as his life falls to pieces in the aftermath in a dark comedy about success and family starring [[Performer~P17602~Danny DeVito~dannydevito]], [[Performer~P4516~Kathy Bates~kathybates]], [[Performer~P42769~Ron Livingston~ronlivingston]], and [[Performer~P215106~Neve Campbell~nevecampbell]]. Dr. Richard Clayton ([[Performer~P42769~Livingston~ronlivingston]]) has everything a man could ever want in life: a loving fiancée ([[Performer~P215106~Campbell~nevecampbell]]), two loving parents who are always there to support him ([[Performer~P31943~Edward Hermann~edwardherrmann]] and [[Performer~P3796~Christine Baranski~christinebaranski]]), and a career that's on the fast track to success. When Richard's embittered brother ([[Performer~P266630~Bob Odenkirk~bobodenkirk]]) resentfully tells his sibling that he was adopted, however, the once-thriving specialist embarks on a tireless quest to locate his true birth parents. Though his dreams of finding his biological mother and father fade into a nightmare when a private investigator reveals to Richard that he was in fact conceived by crude carnies Frank and Agnes Manure ([[Performer~P17602~DeVito~dannydevito]] and [[Performer~P4516~Bates~kathybates]]) -- who subsequently make it their mission in life to make Richard miserable -- the desperate doctor soon finds that even if he can't stand his real parents, he has learned a valuable life lesson from them. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
