A sexually frustrated suburban father has a mid-life crisis after becoming infatuated with his daughter's best friend.
Kevin Costner, Jeff Daniels, Woody Harrelson, John Travolta and Bruce Willis were considered for the role of Lester Burnham.
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 you?
The dancing 'Spartanettes' have a capital 'S' on their uniforms when it should be 'R' for 'Rockwell'; or 'RHS' for 'Rockwell High School'. Lettering in a high school sport the letter on the letter jacket is always the first letter of the name of the high school, not the first letter of the name of the mascot. The same is true of uniforms.
