A sexually frustrated suburban father has a mid-life crisis after becoming infatuated with his daughter's best friend.
Peter Gallagher previously starred in The Player (1992). Thomas Newman composed the music for that film, as well as American Beauty (1999). Also both films are satires; The Player focuses on Hollywood and American Beauty focuses on suburbia.

When Carolyn slaps Jane in the face, Carolyn can be seen yelling at Jane, from behind, even though the soundtrack is silent.
