I am watching American Beauty for the "some big number" time and realized something. Everyone in this movie is crazy. All of the main characters are nuts. I will go into detail on each one of them in 140 characters or less.
Lester Bernham: Hates his job and wife. Loves maturbation, drugs, black mailing his boss and his daughter's underage friend. Dies when he is finally happy.
Carolyn Burnham: Child abusing mother who sucks at real estate, cheats on her husband and gets off by shooting guns.
.Jane Burnham: Pot smoking teenager who hates her family, gets turned on by a stalker, and wants to run away from home.
Rickey Fitts: Unemployed pot dealer who gets a hard on for plastic bags floating and enjoys stalking the neighbor girl by taping her. Also borrows piss.
Frank Fitts: Gay military man who hates fags, locked doors, messing with his Hitler plate and eventually his son. Also a killer.
Angela Hayes: Pot smoking teenager who tells everyone she had sex when she didn't, wants to do her friends dad, and loves being a slut.
Buddy Kane: The real estate king who can't keep a marriage. The ultimate schmoozer who has sex with married women.
Barbara Fitts: Trapped in a marriage where she is pretty much a zombie 24/7. Also, thinks people talk to her when they don't.
Brad Dupree: Lets his employees use company money for sex and also lets an employee black mail him for tons of money.
Jim Olmeyer and Jim Berkley (the gay neighbors): They are probably the best in this movie, but they are gay so that makes them weird by some people (not me).
Overall, this is a great movie but some everyone in this movie has serious problems.
All these people are really fucked up in the head. I would hate to live in this part of town.
