One stereotype about writers is that we tend to be neurotic. We're always trying to fix our own problems. In this movie, the master of wit Albert Brooks, takes on the guise of a science fiction writer who has trouble keeping a relationship. This has not only damaged his home life but it has also blocked his writing progress. In order to figure out his womanly troubles he moves back in with the first woman in his life; his mother. I love this movie becuase it shows that us writers see things differently and can't help but comment on the oddities of so-called normal life.
