Product Overview

Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite) and Billy Bob Thornton (Bad Santa) face off in this "devilishly funny comedy" (Jeffrey Lyons, NBC's Reel Talk) by writer/director Todd Phillips (Old School, Starsky & Hutch).

When unlucky loser Roger (Heder) takes a confidence-building class taught by an egomaniacal teacher (Thornton), the two are pitted in an outrageous battle to determine the ultimate guy's guy. When the rivalry spirals uproariously out of control, no prank is too extreme, no insult is over the line, and nothing is off limits.

Featuring Michael Clarke Duncan, Sarah Silverman, David Cross, Jacinda Barrett and Ben Stiller, School for Scoundrels is "uncontrollably hilarious...Billy Bob Thornton and Jon Heder are at the top of their game" (Pete Hammond, Maxim).

Review "Jon Heder is no longer sporting frizzy hair and moon boots and breathing through his mouth; he's Roger, the shy meter maid (man?) in Todd Phillips' wickedly funny School for Scoundrels. And if anything, he's an even bigger nerd than Napoleon Dynamite. At least Napoleon has an over-abundance of self-confidence...As long as the movie stays focused on the competition between Roger and Dr. P, it is hilarious. Less a fight between stags, this is the dust-up that ensues when a bunny rabbit throws down against the wolf that wants to devour him and takes advantage of the resulting surprise. Elmer Fudd could have explained it to Dr. P: You have to watch out for those wascally wabbits, especially after you've made them hopping mad."

Review "The latest from Old School director Todd Phillips updates the 1960 original (which was based on Stephen Potter's series of how-to-get-ahead novels) about a man of little confidence who enrolls in a class he believes will teach him self- reliance; it's Bad Santa meets Napoleon Dynamite, quite literally...Thornton, who found his nasty niche in Bad Santa only to seem terribly lost in Bad News Bears, doesn't repeat himself here. Dr. P is a classy, cool brand of vile - the demented drill sergeant in a designer suit. And Heder, cast in the role of the invisible man, is fine too. The movie wouldn't work without someone as nondescript as Heder, because you can buy him as a do-nothing, go-nowhere man; he's perfectly, wonderfully forgettable, appropriate for a movie like this."
