This movie is worth the watch if you are fans of Rudd and Carrel (Like Me). It was funny at parts; but the situations were almost too painful to watch.

As much as I wanted to like this movie, the laughs are too inconsistent for it to succeed as the absurdist comedy it wants to be. The main bright spot is Steve Carell's optimistic portrayal of Barry, a good-hearted idiot who only wants to help his new friends out. Some of the other supporting appearances are fun, particularly Zach Galifianakis's weird creation, but the film doesn't quite string together enough jokes and heart to feel cohesive.

here's the thing,i really wanted to like this film seeing that it has two amazing funny leads, Jason Bateman and Steve Carell and film directed by one of my favorite comedy directors Jay Roach (Austin Powers series) but I got to be honest and say that this film is not funny at all.I laughed maybe twice,for sure once.but to be honest this film stuggles with trying to hard.every comedy moment tries too hard to be funny and it fails.I really did try to like the film,but it lacked great writing,character development , and an actual plot stucture.the film starts off as if it's about two guys going through chaotic situations in one night,but then it switchs off to the actual film,which confused me.overall,great leads,just handed a bad script.

Carell is consistently funny and the dinner scene delivers some big laughs, but the rest of the film is soulless and sometimes cruel.

It's not as bad as they say!

The plot revolves around Tim (Paul Rudd) an exec desperately looking for advancement at his business in order to impress his girlfriend (Stephanie Szostak) who he continually asks to marry him, and even carries around a ring for. When given the chance of a promotion, Tim jumps at the chance to impress his bosses. He learns that this includes attending a dinner in which employees pride themselves in bringing the biggest idiot they can find, for the amusement of upper management. The person whose guest is the "worst" will snare a trophy AND be a top dog at work. When Tim tells Julie of the dinner, she is appalled and asks that Tim not do such a despicable thing but he can't resist the opportunity when the very next day he bumps into a prime candidate; IRS employee Barry Speck (Steve Carell...

You May Say I'm A Dreamer , But I'm Not

Dinner for Schmucks is a 2010 comedy film, and a remake of the French play Le Dīner de Cons. The film is directed by Jay Roach (The Austin Power films and Meet The Parents) and stars Steve Carell (The Office and Despicable Me)and Paul Rudd (Friends and I Love You, Man), who have previously teamed up in two other films.

Tim (Rudd) is a rising executive who "succeeds" in finding the perfect guest, IRS employee Barry (Carell), for his boss's monthly event: a so-called "dinner for idiots". The gathering offers certain advantages to the executive who shows up with the biggest buffoon.

Paul Rudd does a good job at portraying Tim Conrad and Steve Carell does even better as Barry, who likes to makes art out of dead mice.

If you get past some of the crude humor and useless foul language, ...
