Synopsis

It's 1970, and paranoia is running the day when private eye Doc Sportello's ex-old lady suddenly shows up out of nowhere. She says she's in love with her billionaire, land developer boyfriend, and that his wife and her boyfriend are plotting to kidnap him and throw him in a loony bin. Doc knows that "love" is another of those overused words of the moment, like "trip" or "groovy," and that it usually leads to trouble, but he still loves her, so when she asks for his help, he takes the case. Based on the novel by Thomas Pynchon.
