Why See The House of Blue Leaves?
Ben Stiller plays Artie Shaughnessy, a zookeeper who dreams of being a songwriter, and Falco his schizophrenic wife named 'Bananas'.
He desperately wants to escape his lower middle-class existence and become a popular singer and songwriter, but his life is complicated by an ambitious mistress, a crazy wife and a bomb-making son.
On the day in 1965 that the Pope visits New York and masses of people line the streets in adulation, Artie thinks its time for his life to be blessed, too.
