Kevin Spacey (The Men Who Stare at Goats), Camilla Belle (10,000 B.C.) and Heather Graham (Son of Morning) star in Father of Invention, a 2011 comedy that is on DVD and Blu-ray less than two weeks after the movie’s premiere as a limited release in theaters on Oct. 14.
Spacey stars as eccentric inventor turned ego-driven infomercial guru Robert Axl. After one of his inventions, the “Ab-Clicker,” maims thousands of customers, a class-action lawsuit lands him in jail for the next 10 years. Newly released, Axle is ready to redeem his name and hopefully rebuild his billion-dollar empire. But first he must convince his estranged 22-year-old daughter (Belle) to let him live with her and her roommates, as well as find that one “fabrication” that will redeem him.
Directed and co-written by Trent Cooper (Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector), the movie co-stars Johnny Knoxville (TV’s Jackass), John Stamos (TV’s ER), Craig Robinson (Hot Tub Time Machine) and Virginia Madsen (Sideways, Red Riding Hood).
