Roger Dodger
With Manhattan as his playground, Roger (Scott) is a thirty-something advertising copywriter who uses his professional skills outside the office tcutting people down and then smiling at them wryly as though they should appreciate it. His affair with his boss (Isabella Rossellini) is proof to him that his phony charms work. But just when life seems perfect for him, along comes his 16-year-old nephew (Jesse Eisenberg), on a pre-college trip to look at Columbia University. The impressionable fatherless teenager dreams of making out in the big city while he's visiting. And Roger is more than happy to help him in his quest. Predictably, both characters, whether they want to or not, learn something from the other, although Roger would probably never admit it. Naturally, you won't like Roger much with his blunt arrogance, sleaziness and incessant chicanery, but you're sure to be amused watching his insensitive humor as he gleefully goes about demonstrating his expertise in picking up women. Campbell Scott, after years of taking supporting parts in films like "Big Night" and "The Spanish Prisoner," has finally been given the role of a lifetime, and he brilliantly makes the most of it. It was directed by Dylan Kidd.
