An adopted scientist (Ben Stiller) sets out to meet his actual parents in the manic comedy “Flirting With Disaster.” Mishaps abound as the scientist and his family is taken on a wild goose chase across the country by a neurotic chaperon.

Mary Tyler Moore and George Segal (as the adoptive parents) and Alan Alda and Lily Tomlin (actual parents) are a hoot in this surefire funny-bone tickler. Also Patricia Arquette, Téa LeoniRichard Jenkins and Josh Brolin. Rated R.

GRADE: B+
