Editorial Reviews

Roger is a beleaguered New York City meter maid who is plagued by anxiety and low self-esteem. In order to overcome his feelings of inadequacy, Roger enrolls in a top-secret confidence-building class taught by the suavely underhanded Dr. P. Aided by his assistant, Lesher, Dr. P uses unorthodox, often dangerous methods, but he guarantees results: Employ his techniques and you will unleash your inner lion. Surrounded by a band of misfit classmates - Walsh, who's dying to move out of mother's basement; Diego, a punching bag for his hen-pecker of a wife; and Eli, a shy guy just looking for female companionship - Roger's confidence grows and he makes his way to the head of the class, even finding the courage to ask out his longtime crush, Amanda. But Roger quickly discovers that star students have a way of catapulting Dr. P's competitive side into high gear. Soon enough, the teacher sets out to infiltrate and destroy Roger's personal and professional life. Nothing is off limits for Dr. P, not even the object of Roger's affection. In order to show Amanda Dr. P's true colors, Roger must rally his new friends and find a way to beat the master at his own game.

This movie had its funny moments, although Jon Heder was always better as Napoleon Dynamite than any of these other roles he plays. The concept behind having a "school" that is supposed to teach confidence but really conveys sinister ways in order to reach that confidence was good. I do not recommend the unrated version though. The only reason it is unrated is because Billy Bob says G## D##### about a million times. After a while the curse words get to the point where they are weakening the film and not strengthening it. Then again its just B grade comedy, despite having Ben Stiller in the mix. Okay to rent but definitely little substance to make it part of your collection.

I had high hopes for SFS, and the early previews ("trailers") I saw were so promising. Jon Heder? Billy Bob Thornton? What could go wrong? As it turned out...quite a bit. I read a review which mentioned that Jacinda Barrett is too bland to be a leading lady, and I wholeheartedly agree. I would NOT recommend this. There were a few laugh-out-loud moments, but they were very few and far between and didn't make up for what happened (or didn't happen) in the interim. All in all, it was a waste of time. One of the few redeeming qualities was the soundtrack, but that didn't make up for that two hours of my life spent watching this.

I was very torn when I wanted to write this review. Jon Heder plays Roger who is a loser who takes a self-confidence building course with Dr. P. (Billy Bob Thornton). he is an egomaniac who pits himself against roger for the hand of Roger's girl. They began a battle on several fronts. There are a few humorous parts but not enough to justify the movie. Billy Bob looks to be having a blast and the paint ball sequence is pretty funny but the rest is predictable and annoying. The airplane bit is worth a chuckle too.

I had high hopes for School for Scoundrels, and that may have added to my eventual disappointment in the film. I should have set my expectations lower but both Thornton and Heder are capable of delivering the laughs - just not in this movie.

The movie's plot, while basic, should have been funny. Heder is a loser with no courage and a panicky/fainting personality. He is sent by a friend who boasts that he's seeing "two Asian girls at the same time" to Thornton (Dr. P.) who teaches a rough class that supposedly stiffens spines and will make its students over into lions for $5000. This revolves around hurting the students, yelling at them (and in the case of Lesher, even raping them). Yup, Michael Clark Duncan (who plays Thornton's assistant) starts out as his usual no-nonsense gruff self and then becomes something more creepy and ugly as the movie winds down. Was the image of Duncan raping these losers supposed to add humor to the story?

Anyway, as we all know from the previews Heder finds the lion within (Thornton's tutelage notwithstanding) and a new competitive side of Thornton emerges. Not to be upstaged by Heder he moves in on Heder's girl (Jacinda Barrett). The movie has been slow up till now, the laughs mild and sparse, but things look like they'll be picking up finally. Heder and Thornton spar for Barrett's attention and give us some genuine laughs, but as soon as it gets going it falls into the realm of the implausible and not-so-very-funny. When Barrett's apartment is broken into and vandalized (supposedly by Heder) there isn't much to laugh at anymore - except maybe that the movie expects us to believe that she can't see through what is happening around her.

Following his Old School Road Trip, and long before his epic Hangover, Todd Phillips went back in time to remake the classic School For Scoundrels, with disappointing results. The story follows an insecure loser in love, who takes a class on how to become more appealing to women. His teacher is a total player, who teaches the class to the best of his abilities, but in the end, he has the same goal as the others, and ultimately falls for the same girl as the loser. When seeing a Todd Phillips comedy, that is unrated, and features Billy Bob Thornton, you should expect to see a raunchy good time, but that's not what happens here. To Phillips, keeping as close to the original story was more important than modernizing it for today's audiences, and the result was a film that fails to live up to expectations. This film needed a major injection of raunch, the kind Thornton became known for in films like Bad Santa. Instead you get what amounts to an average, mediocre, comedy. In this film, Thornton is paired with Jon Heder, Napoleon Dynamite himself, but as with that film, his monotone lovable loser act, gets old very quickly. This film has all the makings of a wild ride and a terrific comedy, but instead it falls flat on it's face, as just another ordinary, run of the mill, romantic comedy.

Chris Heder is a loser - again. He is bullied at work, unable to connect with the girl he likes and pretty much disrespected by everyone he meets. Then he gets a tip to learn how to turn his life around. Billy Bob Thornton runs classes teaching marginal men how to man-up. Seemingly this is done with a lot more bullying but bit by bit, the students, Heder in particular do begin to take control of their lives. The catch is, that Thornton then decides to knock him back down again.

Technically, this is a well made film. Some of the comedic scenes are laugh out loud but there is an unsettling darker edge at times as well. Heder is his usual insipid yet likeable self and Thornton, well, he is an apt scoundrel. There's a twist or two but most things are predictable. Amusing in general and worth a watch with a few friends.
