Movie Summary

Released:

Rating:
R
Roger Dodger is the acclaimed independent feature which sweeps viewers along on the same educational night on the town that the star takes his sidekick on. Nick (Jesse Eisenberg of The Social Network fame) is a high schooler visiting Manhattan, ostensibly for an interview with New York University, which he'll be attending shortly. While there, he drops in on his uncle - womanizing ad man Roger (Campbell Scott, Dying Young, in a tour de force performance) who, at the moment, is having a sexual tiff with his boss (the ever alluring Isabella Rossellini) but is trying not to let it get him down. When Nick reveals his inexperience with and desire to learn about women and the art of wooing them, Roger takes it upon himself to take his young charge out on the aforesaid tour of the town, wherein he'll impart his considerable knowledge on the subject of bedding babes to his eager-beaver nephew.
