This is a smart and insightful sex comedy without relying on the over-the-top antics of the raunchier American Pies of the world. The majority of the film sees Nick and Roger having conversations about the opposite sex and what's the right way to go about getting women to go to sleep with you. Roger has a pretty cynical point of view on this and he's also pretty misogynistic for most of the film whereas Nick is far more sensitive and looking for something more than Roger is willing to help him with. Roger's just trying to get Nick laid, by any means necessary, and I really do mean that. Thankfully, though, the film sees Nick and Roger meeting a pair of beautiful women, Sophie and Andrea, at a bar and they spend a lot of the night with them having conversations about women's point of view when it comes to sex and relationships, so it adds a little dimension to the script that, for the most part, is centered on Roger's point of view, and he's this big macho, misogynistic guy. So the addition of Sophie and Andrea did add a different viewpoint to the film, and it was one that was definitely needed. The script takes an adult look at relationships and sex and, even if the film is 12 years old, it's still a breath of fresh air. And it's not just a film about conversations about the opposite sex, which would still be insightful, but it'd be kinda boring, the film does have a little bit of an arc and seeing how Roger's cynical views on relationships and women change, despite the fact that the relationship he had with his boss, clandestine relationship of course, the gender roles were completely reversed. Roger was, in as unoffensive a manner as I possibly can say this, the woman that was dumped by her boss, the man, in favor of someone younger. So it's interesting to see those roles being reversed, while at the same time seeing Roger's point of view on relationships and women, and how that affects him. That was a pretty good arc and seeing him mend the strained relationship with his family, while not as upfront, was also a good arc for the character. It also helps that Campbell Scott is pretty damn good in this role. Not saying the guy is like this character at all, but it almost feels like an extension of his real life personality, so it almost doesn't feel like he's acting. Jesse Eisenberg is great as always. The rest of the cast is quite, but this is really all about Campbell and Jesse and they deliver the goods. Granted, they have a strong script to work with, so I'm sure that makes it easier for an actor, but they still deliver the goods. Not much else to say really, this is a damn good film. What it lacks in over-the-top raunch, it makes up for in an intelligent/insightful script and a great cast. The directing's a little hit and miss, but the rest of the film is damn good.
