Scott's hilariously hateful hauteur is able to counteract some falsely fuzzy notes in the ending.

Some have condemned this film for 'filthy content.' That's like condemning a hospital for being a place of disease. Kidd deals with 'filth' the way a surgeon treats a tumor.

The dialogue addresses our expectations, gets us laughing and stops the movie from becoming too obvious a character study.

Blatantly arrogant, unapologetically misogynistic, morally repugnant, and absolutely hypnotic. All these descriptions and more can be applied to the character of Roger Swanson (Campbell Scott)

...Rogers's mouth never stops shut about the war between the sexes and how to win the battle.

Other than the slightly flawed (and fairly unbelievable) finale, everything else is top shelf.

Dylan Kidd writes quotable dialogue and monologues that have the muscle of early Mamet without the attendant sameness of every character.

Roger Dodger is an enjoyably bruising tale of the inflated male ego that takes a hammering thanks to a little ironic justice.

Scott completely owns the film, and leaves you wondering why on earth we don't see an awful lot more of him.
