I see a lot of movies. About 2 a week and I have very high standards for movies. I'll admit I didn't expect too much from this one but it turned out to be one of my favorites of the year. The lead character, who is based on the life story of a real person, is someone I don't have much in common with and yet I found myself identifying very much. He has a serious learning disability and has occasional psychotic episodes (often about playing basketball with many versions of himself). He has serious problems with organization and low self-esteem. These problem have caused him not to be able to take advantage of all the opportunities he has been given in life such as a great loving family who are well-off.

Many of his errors are hilarious and yet endearing. For example, he finally meets the woman of his dreams but due to his nervous condition and habitual coffee drinking, ends up taking a dump in her bed. That's embarrassing and funny IMHO. He sinks his dad's boat and burns his parent's house down. This hapless fool is endearing because one gets the impression that despite his failures and weaknesses, he is trying his best to make things work and he seems like a descent person. I found myself rooting for this character throughout the film and the film was not cliche or sappy at all. It was just a good, funny, unpretentious film about a normal guy with some serious problems and all his nutty little quarks.

American Loser is hilarious movie based on the trials and tribulations of a guy who can't seem to catch a break in life. It has some dramatic points as well, funny and romantic scenes....and about having friends who are supportive. Found myself laughing and cringing at the same time! Definitely worth checking out.... ....overall, I really enjoyed it!

Let's you understand what he was going though, and that he is achieving his goals. I like Seann William Scott, and he did not disappoint!

I've got to for the only reason - I like Gretchen Mol. Otherwise average-below average movie, although a few useful points for a young slackers if they want to listen.

Decent movie to pass time. Sean William Scott has done better. However the story line is interesting enough to keep you entertained.

A bit absurd, but then it made me think a lot about my own life. Lots of dark humor. You have to be in the right mood to see it.

I chose this rating because although it has moments, it gets a little too serious at times. Not the best . Of Seann William Scott's work.

American Loser is a good movie that is based on a great book 'Trainwreck: MY Life as an Idoit' by Jeff Nichols. Sean William Scott does a passable job in the title role while Jeff Garlin is excellent as his buddy from AA.
