  • When Hollywood decides to remake French farce by Francis Veber, the result can be a champagne cocktail (La Cage Aux Folles spawning The Birdcage) or pâté de merde (Les Compères degenerating into Father's Day). Dinner for Schmucks, adapted from Veber's Le Dîner De Cons, falls somewhere in the middle. show more

  • Dinner for Schmucks is lumbering, inconsistent and about 20 minutes too long, but it's funny. It's funny from the beginning, and it stays funny, even as it beats scenes to death and overstays its welcome. show more

  • Pathetically unfunny most of the time. show more

    This movie made me laugh out loud several times. Paul Rudd and Steve Carrel are genius. Also loved the girl who played Rudd\'s stalker
