School for Scoundrels

Jon Heder continues his geek run by playing Roger, a wet blanket who takes a confidence-building class in order to impress the girl (Jacinda Barrett) he loves. Tragically, his new teacher (Billy Bob Thornton) has his eye on her too. Director Todd Phillips (Old School) packs the supporting cast with some comedy all-stars — including David Cross and Sarah Silverman — for this remake of the 1960 British movie. Which, FYI, Heder has not seen. ”It’s the same kind of setup, but it’s very different,” he says, with a slightly desperate tone. ”I haven’t seen it. Now I look stupid for not doing my research.” Sorry.
