R | | Drama
A sexually frustrated suburban father has a mid-life crisis after becoming infatuated with his daughter's best friend.
The only film that year to be nominated for Best Actor and Best Actress Oscars.
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 ...
Ricky Fitts walks from the Fitts house to Colonel Fitts, who is washing his car, into a giant, rectangular shadow. That shadow is not possible through real-world causes, because the Fitts' house is simultaneously casting a shadow forward, towards the street.
