Refusing to cut the scene, which in some way is necessary in order to give the subsequent scene its poignancy, Soldonz cleverly blocks out the characters with a large, red rectangle, giving us the sound and the ability to see everything in the room except for the two actors. When Marcus and Vi break up soon thereafter, Vi heads out to "get laid or something" and happens upon Scott in a bar and goes home with him. Refusing to flesh out their motivations in any real way, the characters simply react to forces the stupidity of American middle-class life, for instance that infuse their every waking moment and define their mixed-up existence. The scene ran uncut and unedited in its European release, and so far, there have been no reports of civil unrest or a crumbling of the social or moral order. Another cameo, if you can call it that, is Mike, the incredibly burnt out sidekick from the so-funny-and-right-on-it's-almost-depressing film, "American Movie. Storytelling Selma Blair Selma Blair standing completely in the nude and then leaning up against a wall as a guy has rough sex with her from behind.

Mickey is probably the most distasteful character in the film, as his interactions with the live-in maid attest. Fierce Grace For being so banal and ignorant, that moribund American middle class sure can find ways to shock you! John Goodman, as the father, blusters here and there without listening to anyone else's opinion, Scooby mopes and smokes pot, Toby is the earnest artist, and everyone else is just white noise. Opening with a scene where Vi Selma Blair , is having sex with her cerebral-palsy-stricken boyfriend Marcus, the movie quickly slides into a series of barely connected "tense" moments. After he manages to mock the earnestness of "American Beauty" in one of the clips from Toby's documentary, Solondz drags out Conan O'Brien to star in one of Scooby's daydreams. She then turns to face him, giving us an even better view of her breasts. Storytelling Selma Blair More of Selma Blair laying topless next to a guy in bed, and then getting up to put on her shirt.
