R | | Drama
A sexually frustrated suburban father has a mid-life crisis after becoming infatuated with his daughter's best friend.
The classic thriller Blue Velvet (1986) has been considered an strong influence behind the film. Both films explore the darker side of American suburbia.
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 ...
We see the reflection of the three joggers in the rear window of the Fitts' car because of the angle at which the camera is shooting the scene. Colonel Fitts appears to react to the reflection of the joggers, despite the fact that he would not be able to see it from the angle at which he's facing the rear window.
