It's Not TV...

HBO is playing the movie Unfaithful right now, starring Richard Gere as a man whose wife is cheating on him. I can only imagine that someone thought Richard Gere would be believable as a cuckold, in what they no doubt thought was a brilliant piece of casting against type. But why they thought audiences would feel any sympathy for him on this point is rather strange to me.

IIRC, Gere's character does have one redeeming feature: when he confronts the weasel Frenchman (pardon the redundancy) who's cuckolding him, he bashes the guy's skull in.
