Leave your brain at the door. Ridiculously funny and ridiculous. Steve Carell can say and do the most lame and inane things and it is still hilarious. Sometimes you can burst out laughing just looking at his facial expressions in a given situation. Paul Rudd.. what can I say about Paul Rudd... He has beautiful eyes... He is both subtle and expressive which makes him an excellent comedy pairing with Mr. Carell. (A rather quaint add-in to the cast is the actor from "Office Space" who has a small role as a character of the ilk which he despised in that movie from eleven years ago.) Surprisingly there is a fair bit of wacky side story to keep things rolling in this film. The dinner scene itself is chockful of colourful characters and silliness, and somehow reminded me of a spoof film from the 80s called "Top Secret."
I have to admit that the best bits were probably shown in the trailers.
There is a slight sad social undertone to the movie, but ... it is called "Dinner for Schmucks" after all... and I did start off by saying "Leave your brain at the door."
