About the Movie
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.
Rotten: It would require a near-lethal injection of nitrous oxide to induce laughter.
Rotten: Heder's looks and mannerisms are so inherently geeky that the post-transformation Roger appears to be less a lion with a hearty roar than a dork with delusions of grandeur.
Rotten: This time the pace is so weak that long periods go by without even the whiff of a joke.
