    Steve Carell perfects the role of a 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.

    A revisit of this proved to be more painful than I imagined it would be.

    At almost the same time that mid-level executive Tim (Paul Rudd) is invited by his bosses to the 'dinner for schmucks', a yearly tradition in the company where every guest brings along the biggest idiot they can find, he meets Barry (Steve Carell) a lonely and sad eccentric, who would qualify as a schmuck.

    Bringing along a guest to a party in order for everybody to laugh at him is a douchebag move, so from that set-up, you think you're…

    This film is awful. It's just so bad.

    However it's unfair to say that it's not well made. For the genre, this is a great work. Sadly, the genre is abrasive American comedy, and I cannot stand it.

    Similar in tone to those Chevy Chase movie in the 80s, if that helps. This is a higher-quality example of shitty film than others of its kind but it still deserves to be switched off before the final credits.

    A lot of wasted talent here.

    Dinner for Schmucks is pretty generic. There are a few points in this movie that are pretty funny but for the most part the jokes don't catch very well. Steve Carell and Paul Rudd do what they can in this movie but the concept doesn't have the durability for a almost two hour movie. I think this movie couldn't be that much better considering the story.

    ..I can't help it, I had to laugh out loud about it a few times, especially during the pinguin scene ;)

    I love this movie! Carrell plays such a dim-witted guy, you love how thick he is.

    This movie is fun, although Steve Carell plays basically Michael Scott in this.

    Paul Rudd doesn't play his normal super charming self, instead he is just charming.
