Emory works in advertising, and is beginning to crack-up. His latest idea is honesty, e.g. "Volvos, Yes they are boxy, but they're safe". This doesn't go down too well with the boss, so Emory is sent to a psychiatric hospital to 'recover'. Meanwhile, back at the office, Emory's work is accidentally sent to the printers. His ads are a huge success. But now Emory has fallen for Kathy (another patient) and so doesn't want to leave. Written by
A comedy about truth in advertising.

Some scenes differ slightly from those in the trailer:
- The line "You can't tell the truth, you idiot" from the trailer has "asshole" instead of "idiot" in the movie.
- The text of the Jaguar ad reads "for men who want special attention" in the trailer and "for men who want hand jobs" in the movie.

At the end of the credits, a "special issue" of Advertising Age spins in, with a cover portrait proclaiming the main characters to be "Emperors of Madison Ave." See more
