2.0 starsDinner for Schmucks - 8/19/2010

This evening Sarah and I went to see Dinner for Schmucks at Movies 10.  The movie starred Steve Carell and Paul Rudd, with Zach Galifianakis and Bruce Greenwood.

It is the story of a rising executive who must impress his boss by finding a buffoon to invite to dinner.  Carell played the innocent and loveable target of Rudd's search.

The film is funny, especially at the end during the climactic dinner scene.  There were a couple of times in the movie when I almost felt uncomfortable laughing.  I wasn't sure if I was laughing with the character or at him.  For the most part the filmmakers had the audience laughing with the character.  But still there were times when I questioned it.

Zach Galifianakis is great in his small part, especially in the final dinner scene.

It's a good movie.  But it just isnít quite as funny throughout as The Other Guys.
