Plot

Attorney Harold Fine (Sellers) is having second thoughts about marrying his longtime girlfriend Joyce. At the funeral of his family's butcher, he encounters his brother, Herbie, a hippie living in Venice Beach. Herbie's girlfriend, an attractive flower power hippie girl named Nancy, (Leigh Taylor-Young), takes a liking to Harold and makes him pot brownies. Harold considers the trip a revelation and begins renouncing aspects of "straight" society. He runs out of his wedding to live with Nancy, and tries to find himself with the aid of a guru. Ultimately he discovers the hippie lifestyle is as unfulfilling and unsatisfying as his old lifestyle and once more decides to marry Joyce. At the last minute, he again leaves her at the altar and runs out of the wedding onto a city street saying he doesn't know for sure what he is looking for but, "there's got to be something beautiful out there."
