    Best Scene

    To me the best scene or at least one of them since there are obviously way too many amazing scenes in this movie is when Kevin Spacey is watching the basketball game and then the cheerleaders come out and Mena Suvari is dancing and she keeps looking at him and his mouth is just...

    Drive Throughs Were Never The Same

    Lester made me think about my own life differently. About what might drive a man in his forties to be infatuated with a girl half his age.  About what the backstory was for older men in various jobs like the one he takes at the fast food joint.The tagline for the film was "Look...

    One Of My Favorites!
