Roger Waddell is a meek New York City meter maid, who is having a rough time at work and failing in his social life. When Roger's third "Little Brother" in a row dumps him, the recreation center manager suggests he call a mysterious phone number. Sitting at home, Roger calls the number and reaches Dr. P, who then instructs him to show up at the Learning Annex carrying a manila envelope with $5,000 cash. When he arrives, he and another new student meet Lesher, Dr. P's assistant. Soon, they learn Dr. P is running a very unorthodox class in how to gain confidence and change your life. When Dr. P looks at this new collection of losers, he becomes disgusted and ends class early. Lesher is instructed to hand out beepers. The new "recruits" must carry the beepers and initiate a confrontation with someone nearby when instructed. Soon, Roger begins to excel in the class and gains the confidence to ask his neighbor out on a date. But Dr. P is a competitive guy and does not like to be upstaged by his students, so he begins to romance the same girl as Roger in an attempt to steal her away.

When Roger who had low self esteem actually paid someone to give him the skills to have more confidence, he didn't realize what he was bargaining for.
Dr. P. was not only a swindler but used tactics that were demeaning; even though he went through a lot, he found his true worth as a person and realized just what Dr. P was about.

School For Scoundrels is a good movie that was very entertaining. I wouldn't recommend anyone under the age of thirteen watch this movie because of some references, but nothing too bad. Also, don't watch this movie if you're already stressed because you feel bad for Roger and all he is put through, and I know that I, along with laughing hysterically throughout, was also excited and irritated when he was. A must see! :)
