Dinner for Schmucks

Tim (Paul Rudd) a rising executive, works for a boss who hosts a monthly event in which the guest who brings the biggest buffoon gets a career boost. Though he declines the invitation at first, he changes his mind when he meets Barry (Steve Carell), a man who builds dioramas using stuffed mice. The scheme backfires when Barry's blundering good intentions send Tim's life into a downward spiral, threatening a major business deal and possibly scuttling Tim's romantic relationship.

Some laugh out loud moments

Barry is almost believeable. I could almost picture a guy acting that idiotic. The mice depicting works of art were amazing although part of me was thinking they didn't die of natural causes.

"Dinner for Schmucks" is a remake of a French film called "Dinner". It has had many liberties taken with it, which help to make the movie more accessible to American audiences. Sometimes, in doing this, the movie can lose alot, but much like "Death at a Funeral" the story can be told with many variations and retain its humor.

The trailer implies that most of the movie will be centered around the actual dinner, but in reality, it takes up the last 15 minutes of the movie. This is probably for the best though, as once you get there, you realize that you don't really want to see the other guests all that much. They offer their quick laugh and move on like they should.

One thing of note is that the defining "weirdness" of Steve Carell's character centers around these little scenes he makes with dead rats. I often found myself marveling at them, just because they were so good. If there actually was a guy who single handedly put these all together, he could probably do quiet well for himself.
