    Film #5 of the 2016 Awards Season Scavenger Hunt!
    Task #22: Film 4 of 6 connecting Dwayne Johnson to Kevin Bacon (Paul Rudd -> Steve Carell)

    I know I always said that I would watch literally anything for Paul Rudd and that Paul could make anything better... but man. The universe heard my arrogant ass, boasting the depth of my commitment. Laughing in the face of the powers aligning the Paul Rudd stars. It had lasted too long -…

    Wow. Glad no acting careers were harmed by this release.

    15/100. Not worth writing anymore.

    This is a lovely movie about how logic applies to the crazy world of (considered) Schmucks. I loved the opening sequence, the heartbreak of barry's pudding and I liked the concept of the dinner.

    Dinner for Schmucks is funny and more importantly charming. The performances and characters (Steve Carell's in particular) are top notch. The film only suffers from a few moments of confusion and a script that could have been tighter.

    Not the greatest but weirdly endearing.

    Also, Octavia Spencer imitating a lobster? Oscar-worthy.

    Critically derided when it came out, but I never really understood why. Well, actually, I kinda do - as a remake of a French satire it lacks any actual satire, and there is a jarring dissonance to the way it invites us to laugh at the freaks on display whilst also telling us that it's bad to laugh. So I guess I get it. But moralistic issues aside, this film succeeds because it's very, very funny. The cast is stacked…

    - still fun: we need more slapstick movies with Annoying Friend amidst increasingly embarrassing social situations.

    This was heading for 2 or maybe 2 and a half stars through the first two-thirds of the movie. Then the final dinner scene saved it for me. I want the dinner parties I get stuck attending to be half as much fun.

    Steve Carell perfects the role of the nonsensical idiot; nothing else is worth mentioning. Carell's performance, another testament to his incredible comedic talents, carries this otherwise lifeless and banal movie surprisingly well. Rudd is particularly bad, continually delivering lines full of insincere cliche.
