School for Scoundrels is a comedy film, starring Billy Bob Thornton and Jon Heder, and directed by Todd Phillips. The film is based on the Britishmarker film of the same name. The film was released on September 29, 2006.

Plot

The plot mirrors that of the original film. Roger (Jon Heder) is a put-upon loser in society - subject to ridicule from co-workers and more - who dreams of dating the foreign graduate student who lives in his building, Amanda (Jacinda Barrett). To overcome his lack of self-esteem, he signs up for a course taught by Dr. P (Billy Bob Thornton). While participating, Roger begins to develop a sense of personal pride. Wanting to prove that he's still got his edge, Dr. P starts competing with Roger for Amanda. After a competitive tennis match in which Roger humiliates him, Dr. P enlists the talents of Roger's classmates to frame Roger as an obsessive stalker. Roger uses his authority as a meter reader to impound Dr. P's car, and in retaliation Dr. P gets Roger fired from his job. Roger learns of Dr. P's plans for Amanda from a depressed former student (Stiller) and with the aid of fellow classmates, he sets out to save Amanda and prove Dr. P's duplicity.

Cast



Differences between original and remake

The character of Dr. P is an homage to the headmaster of the fictional Yeovil College of Lifemanship, Stephen Potter, in the original 1960 film. The Lifemanship books on which both films are based were written by the real Stephen Potter.

Both films feature a tennis game between love rivals as a set-piece.
