While any self-respecting individual would find a clever way to off himself after that, Napoleon' friend, Ian (David Cross), gives him a phone number for Dr. P (Billy Bob Thornton), who runs a covert class that helps losers discover their inner lion. Napoleon enters the class and encounters a cadre of similarly wimpy lay-abouts, including Diego (SNL' Horatio Sanz), Walsh (Dog Bites Man' Matt Walsh) and Eli (Todd Louiso, High Fidelity).
Miraculously, Napoleon begins to excel in the class, and even musters the courage to ask Amanda out. But Mr. P takes the competition seriously and sets out to destroy the life of his star student, which means courting his girl. Napoleon must use his newly acquired knowledge to defeat the man who taught it to him.
School for Scoundrels has the same penchant for frat boy laughs as Old School. The best laughs come when the students first start putting some of Mr. P' teachings to use, the highlight being when everyone is given a beeper and asked to initiate a confrontation with whomever' around the second it goes off.
Rounding out the cast is Sarah Silverman as Amanda' roommate, rising stand-up sensation Aziz Ansari in a brief appearance and even Ben Stiller gets in the act in a somewhat amusing back-story.
