I would argue that Dinner for Schmucks is just that little bit better than Le dinner de Cons. It is silly and a little formulaic in places but it succeeds in the fact that it has a very capable and very funny cast. Paul Rudd is the straight man, again, but he is quite good at it,...

"Dinner For Schmucks" gives the feeling of an average over-the-top comedy, but it's the exact opposite when following through on this film. Steve Carell plays a very odd character who is always there to make a sad moment funny. While Paul Rudd is being invaded with problem after ...

Huge misfire!!! bad result in my eyes as this film really is terribly disappointing. There is hardly any funny stuff anywhere! unless you count Carell screaming like an infant at times to be funny?. Apart from a few nice lines here and there and one dinner scene with Carell, Rudd...

Despite being other buddy comedy where one is dumb and the another is a victim and doesn't looks better that the original picture, Dinner for Schmucks it's an agonizing and funny dark comedy, with a charming and very likable cast.

I did not see this film being the comedy of the year, fortunately the funny parts of this film come nice and swiftly not to mention some of the bumps on the road to the dinner, but it leaves you with a question, with so much talent why is steve carrell put into films that dont e...

"Dinner for Schmucks" takes a crap all over your idea of absurd and brings it to a whole 'nother level. It's ruthless, frustrating, and not very funny. Paul Rudd and Steve Carrell back in a movie together? Sounds great. But what the movie delivers is an average script that never ...

I think this is rating so highly with me because I just loved all the little stuffed mice dressed up and put in poses! (What can I say, I am a little twisted!).
This wasn't bad, for a movie I never set out to watch, I was pleasantly surprised by it. Yes, it's a bit silly, but ...

Steve Carrell's character was a bit too much I guess. I mean seriously? You'll jump in front of a car for a dead mouse?
I did laughed few times but I expected more from him. He's one of my fave comedy actor.

This movie is a lot of fun, and it's interesting to see a film peopled with characters that are both cartoonish but grounded with a great deal of humanity. Barry isn't simply a one-dimensional, obnoxious doofus; He actually really cares about his friends and feels pain very acute...
