The Mother of Invention
Bumbling inventor Vincent Dooley (Andrew Bowser) aspires to win the biggest honor in his field, but finds his attempts repeatedly foiled by his arch nemesis Martin Wooderson (Jimmi Simpson), an egotistical virtuoso and six-time recipient of the great award. Now, with just one last shot at living his dream, Vincent pulls out all the stops to create an invention that actually works. Chris Hardwick, Dee Wallace, Kevin Corrigan, and Mark Boone Junior co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
