Steve Carell and Paul Rudd shine in this otherwise weightless summer comedy. Up-and-coming funnyman Zach Galifianakis also adds some much needed spice to this dinner, rounding out an all-star comic cast.

Unfortunately, a good cast can’t make up for a weak plot. Dinner for Schmucks is painfully predictable in its efforts to deliver comedy and feel-good movie magic. There’s nothing new here except some wonderfully creative mouse taxidermy dioramas and some solid acting performances.

  • Not quite sure why a film with comedy on a junior-high level had to have so many raunchy, Hustler-style sex jokes.

    • Good point! The movie wasn’t “adult” enough to warrant some of the jokes, but it wasn’t light-hearted enough to fit the feel-good comedy model – kinda stuck in this weird middle place.
