  • movie Description
  • Flirting with Disaster shows viewers what can go wrong when people travel across the country without knowing exactly where they are going. The comedy film stars Ben Stiller as Mel Coplin, a married man who was adopted by Pearl (Mary Tyler Moore) and Ed (George Segal). Mel feels something is missing even though he lives a good life with his beautiful wife Nancy (Patricia Arquette) and his unnamed newborn son. After his adoptive parents refuse to tell him anything about his birth parents, he decides to look for them on his own before he gives his son a name. Mel meets Tina (Tea Leoni) who works at the adoption agency that placed him years before and manages to get his real mother's address from her. Mel and Nancy agree to have Tina tag along with them as they head south to find Mel's real parents. The trio arrives in Alabama and meets a disturbed woman who Mel discovers is not his mom. The couple starts to realize that Tina is incompetent after she takes them across the country meeting people who never heard of Mel. Viewers find out in the end if Mel finally meets his real mother or goes crazy during the road trip.moreless
