A sexually frustrated suburban father has a mid-life crisis after becoming infatuated with his daughter's best friend.
When Lester and Carolyn are driving to the basketball game, Lester complains about missing a James Bond marathon on cable. Sam Mendes, who directed this film, would later go on to direct two James Bond films, Skyfall (2012) and Spectre (2015).
I need a father who's a role model, not some horny geek-boy who's gonna spray his shorts whenever I bring a girlfriend home from school. What a lame-o. Someone really should just put him out of his misery.
Ricky Fitts: Want me to kill him for you?
Jane Burnham: Yeah. Would ...
After Ricky Fitts's father has beaten him up for opening the cabinet containing his Nazi plate, he has no evidence of any facial scarring that would have been the result of the open wounds caused by the attack.
