Roger dodger

Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

The naked differences between men and women.

Set against the bright lights of Manhattan, Roger dodger is a comic, urbane look at the male ego at war in the singles scene trenches. Campbell Scott stars as Roger Swanson, a hopelessly cynical advertising copywriter with a razor-sharp wit who believes he has mastered the art of manipulating women. But Roger's seemingly foolproof world of smooth talk begins to unravel when he is paid a surprise visit by his teenage nephew, Nick (Jesse Eisenberg), who begs Roger to teach him the art of seducing women. Welcoming the challenge, Roger guides Nick through the bars of Manhattan for an all-night crash course.
