"American Loser": Oxymoronic or Redundant?


Bet you've never seen Sean William Scott play a lovable loser who has to get his act together. Just kidding. If you've ever seen a Sean William Scott movie, you've pretty much seen him in that role. And yet, he still manages to be funny. Usually. Well, luckily he's heading for new territory with his groundbreaking new role...oh wait...Steve Stifler? Again? Really? American Reunion? Sheesh. Okay, well, fine. At least you can enjoy one of his many lovable loser roles with American Loser where he stars opposite Gretchen Mol as a guy who needs to get motivated. While we're rambling incoherently, could the DVD cover artist have found a less attractive picture of Gretchen Mol?

Anyways, American Loser arrived on DVD on September 27th, and to celebrate the release we're giving away a copy. To find out how you can win, keep reading.

Money can't buy love, and Jeff (Scott) admittedly needs some help in that department. A walking mess from the Upper East Side of Manhattan, he needs someone to help him get it together. Enter Lynn (Mol) - a hot blonde gold-digger who has many reasons to give him the push he needs.
