Set in Manhattan, Roger Dodger takes a comic look at the male ego and the art of manipulating women. Campbell Scott stars as Roger, a sharp-witted advertising copywriter who can talk his way into any skirt. Which is exactly why his nephew, Nick, pays him a visit. With Nick's virginity at stake, Roger takes him out for a one-night crash course in seduction, only to realize he still has quite a lot to learn about women...and himself.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Scott's low-key portrayal makes Roger interesting.
Fresh: The terrific and bewilderingly underrated Campbell Scott gives a star performance that is nothing short of mesmerizing.
Fresh: Watching Roger at work isn't always pleasant, but it's one of the year's most mesmerizing sights.
Fresh: An exciting debut from promising, and fairly disturbed, young director/screenwriter Dylan Kidd.
One of the best dialogue movies ever......!
Hands down some of the best quotes for conversation in this movie.... "You drink that drink!....Alchohol has been a social lubricant for thousands of years!! What do you think you're gonna sit there and reinvent the wheel?!"
its a broken promise of a film
i rented this curious to actually seing the advice he gives the 16 year old nick to score with women as ive never actually had a role model myselft. apparently the only way for the average unatractively looking 16 year old guy the only way to score with a woman is through pity, rape or prostitution. So in terms of the actual premise i think its a little sick and completely wrong. its shot in New York which was pretty cool and theres some interesting conversation, but this roger character is somewhat of a pig and the film decends into this baseness without offering any sort of hope. it could have really been good but its lazy, really didnt really explore seducing women and it feels like an empty promise at that level.
Ok, great movie...this is how it really is for a 30 something guy in the city. Excellent depiction of real life and also excellently done.
