A sexually frustrated suburban father has a mid-life crisis after becoming infatuated with his daughter's best friend.
Director Sam Mendes designed the two girls' look to change over the course of the film, with Thora Birch gradually using less makeup and Mena Suvari gradually using more, to emphasize his view of their shifting perceptions of themselves.
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 Lester takes the bag of marijuana from Ricky, Ricky mentions that there is a card in the bag with his beeper number. He gives this contact information only to Lester because he can trust Lester that he won't turn him over to the police, this may not be the case for Ricky's other customers.
