Famed novelist Eric Jonrosh (Will Ferrell) sets the stage for his epic masterpiece of love, lust & greed. Jonas Morehouse (Tim Robbins) digs relentlessly for oil as his daughter (Kristen Wiig) and adopted son (Tobey Maguire) begin a forbidden affair.
Did You Know?
You know God put me here on this earth for a reason. To extrapolate that oil.
Young Cynthia Morehouse
I'm not so sure you're using the word extrapolate properly.
You see these hands! This nation was built by hands like these. Honest hands. Mostly African and Chinese, laboring under the belief that hard word is a religion unto itself. There's oil down in that well, and I'm gonna expunge it. Not for me, though. Not for all the wealth in the world. But for all mankind. It shall be - my legacy.
