From director/screenwriter Amy Heckerling (Clueless, Fast Times at Ridgemont High) comes Loser, a college comedy about trusting yourself, taking a chance and turning your back on the people who take advantage of you. Nerdy, good-natured Paul Tannek (American Pie's Jason Biggs) is a square peg in the round hole that is New York University. His pot-smoking, girl-chasing roommates hate him, and everyone else on campus ignores him. But when he meets fellow student Dora Diamond (Mena Suvari, American Beauty), he discovers a kindred spirit. Dora is pratically broke, has nowhere to live, and her boyfriend, Professor Edward Alcott (Oscar nominee Greg Kinnear), is more interested in manipulating her than loving her. The more people push them around, the closer Paul and Dora get-she helps him dress better and appreciate New York, he lets her stay with him while she finds a job. In the end, Paul and Dora not only fall for each other, they find the courage to walk away from the people who walk all over them-proof that even losers get lucky sometimes.

Frustrating and annoying and tedious. A mess.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the movie has a casual attitude toward drinking and drug use. Paul's roommates spike girls' drinks with the "date rape drug," which is treated as little more than a regrettable prank. Despite the fact that integrity is a key aspect of Paul's character, Paul and Dora casually steal bread, coffee, and theater seats, and this is portayed as clever and charming. Students also blackmail a professor into giving them good grades.
