Howdy,I am the father of a newborn girl, my first child. She is awesome. My wife (her Mother) is also awesome. Right now she is in auto pilot mode of sleeping, eating and pooping and this part is…Continue
"Its worth a watch. The film touches on the idea of the darkness and evil that lurks in the mundane and boring world of middle class America and how we are all affected by it. Very good film and Frank Booth (the films bad guy) is one of those…"
