Storyline

Set against the bright lights of Manhattan, a tale which takes a comic, urbane look at the modern male ego at war in the singles scene trenches. Roger Swanson is a hopelessly cynical advertising copywriter with a razor-sharp wit who believes he has mastered the art of manipulating women. But Roger's seemingly foolproof world of smooth talk and casual sex begins to unravel when he is paid a surprise visit by his teenager nephew, Nick. Hoping to settle, once and for all, the issue of his virginity, Nick begs Roger to school him in the art of seducing women. Welcoming the challenge, Roger guides Nick through the city's wild nightlife for an all-night crash course, only to realize that he--the adult--still has something to learn about what women, and men, really want. Written by Sujit R. Varma

"Artistic" cinematography ruins an interesting story
26 December 2003 | by (Rochester) – See all my reviews

I was unable to watch this film to completion due to the poor cinematography. I understand that the bobbing and weaving camera technique is done for effect, but when the "effect" makes it unwatchable, the director has failed from my perspective.

As long as I have a free will, I can walk out of a poor film. There are too many good films to see for me to tolerate the nausea created by one man's "art form".
