Overview

Director Tom Shadyac (Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Bruce Almighty) reveals how his near-fatal cycling accident forever altered his perception of the Hollywood rat race, and inspired him to make some profound personal changes in a bid to create a better world. At first, doctors told Shadyac he might never walk again. Incredibly, just a few years later, the man behind some of Hollywood's biggest comedies was back on his feet. But his outlook on the world had been inexorably altered, and shortly thereafter, Shadyac relocated from his posh L.A. home to a modest mobile home community. In this film, we follow the filmmaker as he discusses his life-altering experience while attempting to gain a stronger grasp on the human condition by speaking with such noted thinkers as Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, and Lynne McTaggart.

We're all connected. We know this at some common sense level, but this movie offers scientific support as well as inspiring stories of connection by some of the greatest people around. What I especially appreciate is the way it clarifies Darwin's theories. "Survival of the fittest" has been taken out of context and used for the last 100 plus years as a rationale to do all sorts of nasty stuff. Cooperation is the key to our survival. Oh, and if I've made the movie sound dull and pedantic... it's not at all. Funny, moving, smart--all of that and more.

You'll cry and laugh. You'll learn and be uplifted. You'll admire and hope. You'll be encouraged and inspired. I found myself composing a reading list as I watched, wanting more of the wisdom of the historians, scientists, philosophers, writers, and religious leaders who spoke onscreen.
