Hilarious satire that was director Albert Brooks' feature film debut takes a lighthearted poke at cinéma vérité filmmaking in general and public television's "An American Family" in particular. A documentarian (Brooks) tries to capture the typical American family on film while remaining uninvolved, but seems to be doing everything but. Co-stars Charles Grodin, Frances Lee McCain; co-written by Brooks, Mon ica Johnson, and Harry Shearer. 99 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
