Pity poor Ian Carmichael. Inept, insecure and painfully sincere, he has a massive crush on lovely Janette Scott, but is constantly out-maneuvered by conniving cad Terry-Thomas, who seems to know all the right moves. But our hapless hero gets a much-needed reprieve from mediocrity when he learns of the “One-Up-Manship College” run by “professor” Alastair Sim, who secretly tutors life's losers in the fine art of turning the table on their adversaries and always coming out on top, regardless of the circumstances. It isn't long before a newly-confident Carmichael sets out to take on his romantic rival and, ideally, reduce him to a blubbering ruins. But does fate has an unexpected turn in store for all the parties involved? Remade (ineptly) in America in 2006, the original SCHOOL FOR SCOUNDRELS is an ingenious, quintessentially-British comedy that's as timely today as when it was first released. Don't miss it!
