"1/30/11 Steve Carell was hilarious as usual. Triple play for Steve Carell last year: Dinner for Schmucks, Despicable Me and Date Night. "

Funny, but not as dark as it should've been

“"Well, these people invited us here to make fun of us. This is a contest for the biggest idiot... Which I nailed!"

With the Hollywood remake machine surging through European countries unabated, none shall be spared, with Let the Right One In and now The Dinner Game having been reinvented for Westerners. By and large, remakes of this variety are completely unnecessary as they are merely produced to ensnare audiences who are resistant to embrace foreign films in their original form (i.e. with subtitles). It's surprising, then, that Dinner for Schmucks is in fact a constantly uproarious comedy benefitting from an ideal cast. However, it's not perfect. A Hollywood remake of the French film The Dinner Game, Dinner for Schmucks features a mean-spirited premise which should have paved t” read more

" Despite the fact that it has a lot of my favourite actors in it I wasn't really expecting "Dinner for Schmucks" to be particularly good. I was pleasantly surprised, although I know some people thought it fell short I thought it was really funny, definitely a comedy I'd watch again."

"July 30 @ Theatre USA, English (First Viewing) Ridiculous and contrived but funny. None of the characters or situations are even remotely believable (or fresh) but the laughs still keep on coming. With the massive amount of comedic talent on display, the movie should do better than this."

GemLil posted a review 5 years, 5 months ago

“This movie promised alot, but failed to deliver. It was too dark to work on a Hollywood level, but too slapstick to fit in amongst more independent films.

The entire film felt as though it was trying to be something else, and just couldn't get there. Steve Carell plays Barry, a eccentric (if not mentally ill) IRS worker with a penchant for taxidermy. He meets Paul Rudds character Tim. Tim is a ruthless financial advisor, who is willing to humiliate loner Barry in order to impress his boss and co-workers by inviting him to a 'Dinner for Schmucks'. A dinner party in which invitees must bring an idiot guest to make fun of.

The whole thing had a general morality about it, the idiot loser being the 'real' winner, but the point was laboured and dragged and made the film q” read more

"The Verdict: Steve Carell was one of the biggest reasons this film actually turned out to be pretty funny. His role seems to come so natural, and I like him pretty much in whatever he is doing. Zack G. was actually pretty hysterical as well. Other than those two things though, this movie was a letdown."
