Dinner for Schmucks
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, it's a great COMEDY. Not a great FILM, a great COMEDY. Meaning that it's good for a laugh.
