Quotes

Marcia Prior Glass: I suppose I fared better than Andrew who had to hand his balls over to father... only one pair allowed in the house at a time, you know. After father died, Andrew got them back but strangely enough he keeps looking for someone else to give them to. Olga and I passed them back and forth for a while but we really didn't want them... He finally found a real taker in Nancy who it seems had been looking for an extra pair for quite some time.

sophomoric attempt at insight
5 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's not enough for the director to parade overeducated ill-tempered females into the imagined space of the faculty lounge, he seeks to imbue them with imagined glamor or "righteousness" in that they interrupt one another (even when making birthday speeches) with criticisms on grammar. His knowledge of drug-use is even more distressingly inadequate than his shocking misunderstanding of the intellectualism his characters demonstrate. The young sister, her face full of baby fat and a demeanor more akin to someone tranquilized is portrayed as a meth addict, and the educated elite can do nothing but tell her "it'll be alright." Maria Bello's character seems to enjoy cuckolding her husband for months at a time, but that part of the movie is simply skipped, and we never learn a thing why she enjoys (loves) the man she is having an affair with. The most tragic part of the movie is the director's mis-use of "Nancy," the somewhat trashy salesgirl marrying the weak brother. It was as if Seidelman was afraid this character might come-alive and eat his lunch, so she also was muzzled and made somewhat impotent. We learn nothing from Mr. Seidelman other than he needs an education (in life) before he starts another pretentious effort at biting off more than he can chew.
