School for Scoundrels | Chicago Reader

School for Scoundrels

A wimpy parking cop (Jon Heder of Napoleon Dynamite), hoping to win the girl of his dreams (Jacinda Barrett), takes an assertiveness training course from a ruthless SOB (Billy Bob Thornton), but after he rises to the head of the class the teacher starts moving in on his girl. Director Todd Phillips has become Hollywood's go-to guy for collegiate humor, and though this isn't as funny as his Road Trip, Old School, or Starsky & Hutch, there are some choice sequences of the devious Thornton schooling his milquetoast students. The fine supporting cast includes Michael Clarke Duncan, Sarah Silverman, David Cross, Matt Walsh, Todd Louiso, Horatio Sanz, Luis Guzman, and (inevitably) Ben Stiller. PG-13, 101 min.
