Trivia

The opening scene, in which Reese collects hair from around the bathroom and glues it to his armpits, was inspired by writer Alex Reids younger brother, who did the same when going to a family friends pool party. See more »

Quotes

Julie: Our society is just so screwed up, y'know?. Thirty years ago, you could just at least pick something and go with it: housewife, a career woman, sex slave... but now, you're supposed to do everything, and *it's impossible*.
