Trivia In the scene where Lance Loud is on the phone with his family, he reads a media description of himself and his "flamboyant, leech-like homosexuality". That's a direct quote from an article written for The New York Times by Anne Roiphe. She made equally scathing remarks about the entire Loud family. See more »
