DINNER FOR SCHMUCKS is dumb fun, emphasis on the 'dumb' (review)

Rating:  (Passable)

Dinner for Schmucks opens to shots of stuffed mice, lovingly posed and clothed at the park as "The Fool on the Hill" by The Beatles plays in the background. It's brilliantly stupid. Before we see Barry, we know everything we need to know about him. If only he were in a better movie. This one, well, it's decent, but predictable.

DINNER FOR SCHMUCKS has Carell, Rudd, and Galifianakis

I meant to get this up yesterday, but got a bit too busy with my radio project. What a great cast: Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, and Zach Galifianakis. If only the movie looked better. I'm hopeful that these guys wouldn't have ALL signed on for a crappy project, but whenever I see a comedy and don't laugh at Carell, I take it as a bad sign. Still, it's always great to see Zach Galifianakis get his due. He was great on Saturday Night Live a few weeks back. Jay Roach, the man behind the Austin Powers and Meet the Parents films, is directing.
