Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: A refreshingly unsentimental education.

- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Friday, November 1, 2002

Fresh: You won't like Roger, but you will quickly recognize him. And that's a big part of why we go to the movies.

- Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News, Thursday, November 7, 2002

Rotten: Doesn't really add up to much.

- Connie Ogle, Miami Herald, Friday, November 15, 2002

Audience Reviews

3 stars

I didn't enjoy this film as much as I thought I would, I think the trailer is a little misleading. Still, a good story, an outstanding performance by Cambell Scott and, on a more anally technical note, really good editing.

A rather unsuccessful womanizer is taking his teenage nephew to a night out and teach him about approaching and scoring with the ladies. That leads to quite a few amusing, true and wonderfully pathetic observations about flirting, sex, men and women. While the camera work is somewhat experimental and shaky at times by trying to be voyeur instead of cinematic observer it also gives the movie a pretty realistic feel. Like Sex and The City for men, pretty interesting.

The inclusion of Jessi Spano is genius
