There are many reasons to love Dylan Kidd's debut feature film Roger Dodger. It boasts a script (written by Kidd) filled with dialogue that feels as though it were channeled from Tarantino and a young Kevin Smith, it has a career-defining performance from Campbell Scott, and Jesse Eisenberg's portrayal of a nerdy teen hadn't yet become cliché. It's the sort of smart, snappy, dialogue-driven film that we don't seem to see enough of.

The story of Roger Dodger revolves around Campbell Scott's Roger, a smooth-talking New York copywriter with an answer for everything. The film spans one night, chronicling the arrival of Roger's nephew Nick (Eisenberg) from Ohio. Nick has sought out his uncle's advice on how to score with girls, which may be a mistake since Roger can barely contain his contempt for the women he chases after in his every waking moment. The two spend an evening together -- Nick, the attentive pupil and Roger, the angry teacher who might not have his student's best interests at heart.
