    Read Josh Ralske's review for Moviefone. Roger, a clever and eloquent womanizing con artist whose idea of love is sex, reaches a crisis point in his life because of his shallow and empty humaneness. He reacts by mentoring his 16 year old nephew in how to sexually conquer females, Roger Dodger style. Problems ensue as his nephew's human sensitivity clashes with Roger's exploitative and loveless relationship style. Roger somehow gains insight into these dynamics and abruptly ceases his tutorship, realizing his shallow approach is inappropriate to his sensitive and caring nephew. For those interested in human relationships, but some if not many will find it boring.
