An immaculately constructed Rube Goldberg device that accumulates comic energy and speed as it reaches its finale, built from social and emotional hypocrisies we use to try and paper over our vices. It's what Russell does now, only far less serious.

It's a road movie, and a family comedy, and neurotic Woody Allen-style rom-com, but none of those crisp, compact boxes can properly contain this wild, strange, unruly picture.

David O. Russell has a twisted mind; I like that in a man.

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.

Entertainment for the whole dysfunctional family.

Boasting a clever title, this is an inspired piece of lunacy about sociology versus biology, with terrific performances from Ben Stiller and his two sets of parents.

The neurotic frenzy threatens to annoy, but Russell's edgy, abbreviated style generates farcical comic friction without sacrificing character.

One Stiller movie I actually enjoyed.

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.

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

Sounds like a French farce, you say? Well, you got that right. And it's just as entertaining.

Excellent comedy. You can just feel how good intentions turn disastrous.
