"There's no such thing as adventure. There's no such thing as romance. There's only trouble and desire." It's probably the best-known phrase of this movie, but actually it's a quote from 'Lang, Fritz''s movie _Dr. Mabuse, der Spieler (1922)_. See more »
[after Dennis kisses her]
You shouldn't do that.
Because I'm your father's girlfriend?
My father's a womanizer. He's a married man and he stood you up.
You have no respect for your father.
I don't know him. But I respect his taste in women.
So then go make love to your mother.

"Simple Men" is one of my favorites -- great acting, dialogue, and a bizarre plot, plus a great deal of ironic humor. One of the most attractive things about Hartley's films, however, is especially striking in this one -- the haunting and memorable background music. After this, see "The Unbelievable Truth." I'm looking forward to "Monster," which I hear also stars Robert Burke.
