School for Scoundrels- Review By: Roger Moore

Directed By: Todd Phillips

Written By: Todd Phillips & Scot Armstrong (Screenplay), Stephen Potter (Novel)

Score: Technical: 70, Story: 80, Acting: 80, Overall Score: 77%

Roger is a young man down on more than just his luck, he’s quite simply a loser and as his job seems to hold no bearing on his life as a New York meter maid, his love life also suffers the fate of truly sucking.  The final straw is when his little brother in the Big Brother program decides he wants a different big brother, this pushes Roger over the edge and he is directed to take an unknown class given by Doctor P and his assistant Lesher.  With help from the two men using their unorthodox methods a battle soon breaks out between Roger and Doctor P for the love of one woman.  The only way to find out who gets the girl is to go and see it for yourself.

There was nothing extraordinary about this movie on the filming side of things but it was done well and the story flowed nicely.  The comedic scenes were done with very good timing and the acting went over very well.  At first it was slightly on the slow side but it picked up very nicely and went well throughout. 

This one gets only Two Skipped Beat on the Roger Moore scale but it is definitely worth watching and when the time comes it will makes it’s way into the collection mostly cause it was just plain funny, but it also had a good story to it and showed that Napoleon Dynamite can be more than just that.  I enjoyed it and hope you will too.  As always be afraid, be very afraid.
