R | | Drama, Romance
A sexually frustrated suburban father has a mid-life crisis after becoming infatuated with his daughter's best friend.
During the film, Lester's physique improves from flabby to toned. Kevin Spacey worked out during filming to improve his body, but because Sam Mendes shot the scenes out of chronological order, Spacey varied postures to portray the stages.
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 Ricky is filming Jane while she strips for him, the light in his room is on, and it should have given the room enough illumination as to create a reflection in the glass.
