Film Review - Dinner For Schmucks

Release: 2010
Director: Jay Roach
Starring: Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Zach Galifianakis, Jemaine Clement, Stephanie Szostak, David Walliams

Steve Carell is in one of his more zaney roles in this one, and may be too much for some to handle. His performance is meant to make you cringe. I could watch Paul Rudd is anything, no matter how awful.

It has a wonderful supporting cast full of scene stealing, particularly The Hangover's Zach Galifianakis as Carell's psychic nemesis. Jermaine from Flight of the Conchords is particularly amazing.

I cringed the whole way through, but was elated for the final 20 minutes as everything reached it's hilarious conclusion. Not a comedy to simply write off.
