Synopsis


Dinner for Schmucks
An ambitious executive accepts an invitation from his boss to attend a dinner party where high-powered professionals make fun of unsuspecting dimwits in this remake of Francis Veber's 1998 comedy The Dinner Game. Upwardly mobile executive Tim (Paul Rudd) has just landed his company an extremely wealthy Swiss client when his boss, Lance (Bruce Greenwood), invites him to an exclusive, yet unusually mean-spirited dinner party where each of the high-powered executives brings a guest to make fun of. Recognizing that his long-awaited promotion is finally within reach, Tim begins to have second thoughts about participating in the elaborate charade when his longtime girlfriend, Julie (Stephanie Szostak), the successful curator at a local art gallery, voices intense disdain for the idea. The following day, Tim is looking for a way out of the dinner when fate throws the perfect guest right in front of his luxury car. Barry (Steve Carell) is a sweet but dim-witted IRS agent with an unusual hobby: he creates elaborate dioramas featuring stuffed mice. His latest project is "The Last Supper," and he's just put the finishing touches on a tiny mouse Jesus to set at the center of the table. Tim knows that Barry is his ticket to a big corner office on the seventh floor, but the closer the party looms, the more he realizes that his bumbling new acquaintance isn't just an idiot, but also is a magnet for chaos., Rovi

    Not much to say, really. Its got Steve Carrell and Paul Rudd...and that means comic gold, for the most part. Its just a good little comedy that makes you feel for the characters, whether its liking Rudds comic timing, Carrells totally perfected goofiness, the hilarious foriegn photographer, or just flat out hating the cruel business guys, which makes you love the other characters so much more. All you gotta do is watch and enjoy.

    Not for everyone

    My fiance loves this movie, but I'm still on the fence about it. The plot is interesting enough, but I got bored with it pretty quickly. I love the two featured actors, but the humor in this movie just wasn't funny to me. I guess it's all a matter of opinion.

    I like Paul Rudd and Steve Carrell so I had no problem sitting through the whole thing. Sure it wasn't anything like Anchorman but was still fun seeing these two together in another movie. If you like them you'll probably like this.

    Like stated above, overall a good, funny movie. Some spots a little slow, others gut busting funny. Steve Carell did a great job playing his part.

    The comedy that lost it's way

    With so much potential, it's a shame the director "Jay Roach" lost his way and the laughs by taking a too high moral road.
