An on-line tribute to Albert Brooks' hilarious 1985 movie

"I always loved the idea of making a life-long decision and finding out four days later that it was wrong. You know, burning your bridges and then having to eat shit. Here was this successful married couple who sell their house, buy a Winnebago, hit the road, lose everything in a week, and realize they've made a mistake. So the concept was all about backing up and eating shit. We all do it in little ways. I wanted to see it big." -- Albert Brooks re Lost in America in Playboy interview, 1999
