Dinner For Schmucks

The poster says "From the Director of Meet the Parents". Does that tell you what kind of movie this is? I guess it would be closer to a fable? Is that right? In any real world situation, would you pretend to propose to your stalker only to have her smash your porsche in front of the restaraunt in the next scene?

A sad misuse of Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, Jemaine Clement, et all. There are a tiny few amount of laughs. I saw this in a pretty packed theater and you could count the laughs in the movie on two hands. The "dinner" itself was fairly enjoyable but does start to drag on.

Since At the Movies ends its legendary run on TV next week I will steal their slogan and say "Skip It"!

Did you enjoy it?
Sort of. Not enough to pay for it.

Would you see it in theaters again?

Would you buy it?

Would you rent it?

Would you watch it if you saw it was on TV?
Eh, maybe if it was the last 20 minutes of the movie.
