Father of Invention is a 2010 American comedy film starring Kevin Spacey, Camilla Belle, and Johnny Knoxville.


A television infomercial introduces the audience to a rich entrepreneur Robert Axle (Spacey), a "fabricator" who combines other people's inventions into popular consumer products. But one of his products causes severe injuries to purchasers, which results in an eight-year term in prison.

Released and broke, he wants to get back on his feet with fresh inventions. More important, he wants to reclaim the love of his estranged daughter (Belle), whom he neglected when she was a youngster. First, though, he must get past a doubtful parole officer, dubious employers and his daughter's man-hating roommate (Graham).

Other roles include Spacey's ex-wife (Madsen), her new husband (Robinson), and his new employer (Knoxville). A second roommate, played by Anna Anissimova, starts out as one of the film's more notable personalities, then turns into something of a plot gimmick.
