An unlucky meter reader enrolls in a confidence-building class so he can win the love of the girl of his dreams. The class turns out to be something quite different when it becomes clear to the young man that his professor has his sights set on the same girl. Written by
Roger goes to visit Lonnie in Peekskill, a suburb about an hour away from Manhattan. From Grand Central Terminal Roger would take the Hudson Line to get to Peekskill. As of 2008 the Hudson Line still uses the older trains with red and blue chairs. The train Roger is on has blue and green chairs, which are seen on other lines. Basically the train Roger is seen on would not have taken him to Peekskill. See more »

Went to preview screening last night and was pleasantly amused for the first hour but then it just went downhill. Jon Heder's performance is pretty much flat, not bad in any way except that it does nothing to beyond what was on the page. This is typical of most of the cast who seem to be engaged in some sort of paint by numbers exercise. Even Billy Bob Thorton who is well cast as a drill instructor for losers loses steam. Todd Luiso, best known for the wimpy employee in High Fidelity is probably the only actor that manages to turn in something worthy of appreciation. There is an oneupmanship sequence reminiscent of "Rushmore" but only serves to make one wish they were watching that instead. Wait till it's in the video store and you have trouble agreeing what to rent and need something bland.
