"...Campbell Scott toplines a terrific cast with his spot-on portrayal....RODGER DODGER is a fresh, original look at sex, replete with scathing humor, pathos and memorable characters..." Box Office "...[The] laughs come with a sting....Campbell Scott is sensationally good..." Rolling Stone "...Acutely witty....An extremely promising first feature.

Los Angeles Times "...As a director, Kidd shows enormous visual promise..." Film Comment "...Kidd's dialogue gives off a ribald crackle; there are traces of Whit Stillman's whizz-bang patter, and an acidic drop of Mamet..."Sight and Sound0.4448677

As high school comedies go, it's up there with HEATHERS and CLUELESS."Uncut0.4140159
