TOM SHADYAC (Director) is one of Hollywood's most successful
comedy directors, with his
films Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Nutty Professor, Liar Liar, Patch Adams
and Bruce Almighty grossing nearly $2
billion at the box office.
Of Lebanese descent, Shadyac comes from a unique and diverse background. He's
been an actor,
screenwriter and standup comic, while studying in-depth monastic traditions,
ancient philosophy, mystic
poetry, myth and storytelling. What sets the director apart is his rare ability
to blend humor and heart.
This film marks Shadyac's return to narrative filmmaking following a sabbatical
in which he spent
much of his time making documentaries (I Am and Happy), teaching and working
with students from
underserved communities in Memphis, Tennessee.
