Plot Summary

Adapted from the Stephen Potter novels on 'Lifemanship', this lighthearted comedy shows us how Henry Palfrey changes from a young man with a giant inferiority complex into a confident, assured man-of-the-world after a course at the College of Lifemanship on 'how to win without actually cheating'. Sweet is the moment when he takes his revenge on all who cheated and duped him and steals the beautiful April from the arms of his cocksure rival.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: It feels as if director Phillips was scrounging desperately for morsels with comic potential and came up empty-handed. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Sep 1, 2007

Rotten: It would require a near-lethal injection of nitrous oxide to induce laughter. – Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle, Oct 1, 2006

Rotten: This time the pace is so weak that long periods go by without even the whiff of a joke. – Kyle Smith, New York Post, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: Despite the appeal of cobra-eyed Thornton and bunny-nosed Heder, Scoundrels trips early, and often. – Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer, Jun 24, 2010
