"School For Scoundrels" with "Napoleon Dynamite" star Jon Heder

"Napoleon Dynamite" is back - Jon Heder stars in the role of Roger, who takes over a class for losers. The concept of a class that turns weak men into "lions" who can conquer women and achieve their dreams reminds me of "The Game," the controversial book by Neil Strauss that is packaged to resemble the Bible with a black leather cover with pages trimmed in gold. Whether or not this film is a parody of "The Game," the comedic timing of "School For Scoundrels" was successful due to good acting and physcial humor, including the scene when Jon Heder removed his clothes at the pool and revealed a ghost-white body. His look makes him perfect for the part of the nerd, which he hams up just like he did in "Napoleon Dynamite."
