A sexually frustrated suburban father has a mid-life crisis after becoming infatuated with his daughter's best friend.
Christopher Greenbury was the initial editor, but had to leave halfway through post-production because of a scheduling conflict with Me, Myself & Irene (2000) (which Chris Cooper also starred in). Sam Mendes and an assistant edited the film for ten days between the appointments.
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 ...
When the rose petals begin falling from Angela's naked body on the Burnham's bedroom ceiling on to Lester in bed his head is centered on the pillow, as the camera goes tighter in subsequent shots his head shifts significantly camera right on the pillow.
