A script that suffers the same problem as its characters - lack of confidence - is in dire need of a fire being lit under its arse. All involved could do with learning a thing or two from some scoundrels of the 'dirty, rotten' school.

The film that Anger Management %u2013 starring Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler %u2013 should've been. Admittedly one 'School' you definitely want to enrol in.

None of the actors can save this weak script nor survive the tepid direction.

School for Scoundrels has some good ideas and funny moments, but it loses steam as it goes on, which you really feel when it resorts to yuks involving defibrillator paddles accidentally applied to a character's genitals.

School For Scoundrels is a fitting entry into the loser-makes-good genre in the tradition of The Lonely Guy and The 40-Year-Old-Virgin...

[D]irector Todd Phillips sets up a passable premise but never even gets to first base; they're too busy hammering us with oafish, bird-brained comic set-pieces to bother with making sense or following through on anything.

School for Scoundrels is to the art of film what processed cheese food is to fine dining.

Unfunny, unkind, and completely unnecessary, "School for Scoundrels" doesn't pass as a comedy.

Unfortunately for the toothless rabble-rousing School for Scoundrels this disposable and dimwitted farce deserves its smirking class to be dismissed.

Things get increasingly dopey in the final act, leading to an incredibly stupid ending, but I have to admit I laughed just enough to recommend School for Scoundrels.

A little too long, but good enough, especially when it's compared with most of the other stuff that's foisted on the audience these days.

"Did he rape you?" This question serves as a running gag throughout School for Scoundrels, a decidedly unfunny comedy about a wimp who becomes not a wimp.
October 1, 2006
A clashing combination of mismatched, recycled ideas, and wasted opportunities.
