Stalled in his company's pecking order, ad man David Howard (Albert Brooks) failed to land the Senior VP slot he wanted. He quits, convinces wife Linda (Julie Hagerty) to do the same, sells their house and stocks and buys a Winnebago to roam the USA. Though they feel they're Easy Riders, they're actually Born to Be Mild. With their $145,000 nest egg tucked reassuringly within reach, they make their first stop: Las Vegas. Goodbye, nest egg. Greetings, hilarity. In Lost in America, director/co-writer Brooks memorably bonds with Hagerty as a couple spinning along on wheels of misfortune. Their comic plight speaks to anyone who's ever dreamed of chucking it all.
