R | | Drama
A sexually frustrated suburban father has a mid-life crisis after becoming infatuated with his daughter's best friend.
Sam Mendes cut much of Barbara's dialogue, including conversations between her and Colonel Fitts, as he felt that what needed to be said about the pair-their humanity and vulnerability-was conveyed successfully through their shared moments of silence.
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 Jane is being filmed and talking about having her father killed (jokingly) she is smoking pot in the room. The room is Ricky's and it is known by this part of the movie that Colonel Fitts hates pot smoking. This is literally the scene where Ricky explains that his dad caught him smoking pot when he was younger and sent him to military school or something along those lines. It doesn't make sense for them to be smoking weed inside the room.
