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.

If you are thinking right now about who you would bring to a dinner like this...STOP IT! That's not very nice. If you are thinking right now that this movie will end up having some kind of moral redemption in the plot...STOP IT! It doesn't. There is one point in this movie when I thought, "There we go, now they've hit the moral to the story." Unfortunately I was wrong and they ran right over that moral with an army tank and then set it on fire and drown the ashes in 3 month old tomato juice. The handful of laughs this movie produced wasn't worth the shmuck you had to wade through to get there... <a href="https://www.clearplay.com/MovieDash.aspx?id=3832&movie=Dinner+for+Schmucks" class="external" target="blank">See Full Review</a>January 12th, 2014 · Details

If you like dumb humor, this movie is for you. Otherwise don't waste your time. Personally I don't really like Zach Galifianakis and Steve Correll was not his best.June 8th, 2011 · Details
