When I caught this modern-day screwball comedy in theaters I didn't think much of it, and it's even less appealing now.

"Flirting With Disaster" is no exception to Stiller's disappointing cinematic track record.

There are conventions in this sort of story, and Russell seems to violate most of them. He allows the peculiarities of his characters to lead them away from the plot line and into perplexities of their own.

Avoiding the safety of the PC blanket, David O. Russell has crafted a canny, crafty and altogether adorable little misfit of a movie.

This whacked-out road comedy about a young man's search for his real parents takes any number of unexpected turns, most of them bitingly funny.

If Russell is erratic with plot and the slightest bit smug in attitude, he makes up for these flaws by drawing fun, inspired performances from his ace cast.
