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 practically 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.

Columbia Pictures presents the romantic comedy ``Loser.'' Written and directed by Amy Heckerling, the film stars Jason Biggs, Mena Suvari and Greg Kinnear. The film is produced by Amy Heckerling & Twink Caplan. Executive producer is John M. Eckert. Rob Hahn is director of photography, and Steven Jordan is production designer. Mona May is costume designer, Debra Chiate is editor and Elliot Lurie is music supervisor. The film also features Zak Orth, Tom Sadoski and Jimmi Simpson, as well as Dan Aykroyd in a cameo appearance.

In Theatres Friday, July 21
