American Beauty (1999)

Fire up American Beauty (40:47) Rated R, yet again, because we like to swear.

American Beauty 2

Oscar Month ends with this episode as Kevin Spacey & Annette Bening share the hate in most comical fashion. The Oscar-winner was a mega-hit and it’s still vivid & funny, but also a touch dated. The young actors more than hold their own in Sam Mendes’ debut as a film director. Look closer at this one while also tracking down some Sparkplug Coffee!
