Barry Sonnenfeld, who directed "The Addams Family" movie and the "Men in Black" trilogy joins CBS News' Jamie Wax to share how his dysfunctional childhood influenced in his career. In his new book "Barry Sonnenfeld, Call Your Mother: Memoirs of a Neurotic Filmmaker," Sonnenfeld explains why he says there is no upside to optimism, only to pessimism — and details the miracles that have happened throughout his life to get him to where he is today. He discusses his strained relationship with his parents, beginning his career as a cinematographer on several Coen Brothers films, and why he became a director when he had no interest in doing so.
