Adaptation. (2002)

 Rated R because we threw around some words that are bound to bother babies.

Episode #86 in the Next 100 Project gets all meta & introspective with a peek at the Jonze/Kaufman/Cage comedic kookfest. Huge kudos to Meryl StreepChris Cooper and the dynamite supporting cast too. This movie has a lot of 3rd-act eyebrow-raisers, but despite its themes of disconnection and loneliness, the flick remains ultra-funny 15 years later.
