Does Daddy get a kiss from both of his little girls?
Oh, no. No, Daddy doesn't even get to touch Mommy for a very, very... very long time.
Daddy's really sorry about what he said in the other room, he didn't mean any of it!

I'm not sure what they are trying to do here, other then glamorize lecherousness. The movie has no original theme, and you can tell how the story will progress from the very beginning, indeed even just be looking at the title. I'm amazed at why this movie was presented for Oscar nomination. There is absolutely nothing interesting or original about it. It was a total waste of time watching it, especially because it is so damn long. I forwarded it most of the time. It also reflects on how powerless the American public has become that they can no longer steer what they are made to watch by the powerful media. I hope that the number of negative reviews will serve to put this movie back in its proper place.
