A somewhat average movie, with very few laughs.

School for Scoundrels is comedy that barely qualifies as one. I'm not a big Jon Heder fan, I just don't get him. I do like Billy Bob Thornton though. However, I found it very weird that i ended up liking Jon Heder's character and hated Billy Bob's. Jon Heder is...better than usual as the loser(that he consistently plays in all of his movies.) but Billy Bob Thorntons character is so extra unlikable, that he brings down a lot of the movies fun. This movie is only mildly funny but quite offensive. And don't get me started on Michael Clarke Duncan. I like Todd Phillips as a director, but this is one of his few duds.

The scenes between Billy Bob Thornton and Jon Heder are pretty good, but it takes half the film to get to any good stuff. It's predictable and has only a few real laughs, but it's worth at least one watch.

It's just not good, and thats about all you need to know. Not funny enough to be a comedy, not serious enough to be taken seriously, and entertaining enough to be worth your time. It takes skill for a movie to be this unrealistic and formulaic at the same time and hits that spot perfectly while also being unpleasant and bland.
