Matthew Broderick stars in this outrageous comedy from acclaimed filmmaker Francis Veber. In the midst of negotiating a multi-million dollar deal, hotshot Manhattan stockbroker Bill Campbell (Broderick) receives a call for help from his young sister, who's convinced her stepfather (Jeffrey Jones) is up to no good. Bill reluctantly agrees to stop by the small logging town of Buzzsaw to calm his sister on his way to completing the deal. But as soon as he arrives he's kidnapped by Sally (Heidi Kling), a pistol-packing redhead who leaves him without his car, his pants and his wallet containing a phone number worth $140 million! His attempt to retrieve the wallet and save his sister lead him to bizarre encounters with two simple-minded backwoods brothers, two inexperienced and insecure policemen, and his sister's nearsighted stepfather, whose evil twin brother is trying to quiet both Bill and Sally permanently. How Bill manages to retrieve his possessions - and find true love - makes Out On A Limb a hilarious, fast-paced treasure.
