Plot Summary
Unhappy with his overall life, Steven Schoichet (Adrien Brody) decides to pursue his dream to be a professional ventriloquist. His family is neither supportive nor particularly critical. Luckily, Steven finds work through an attractive unemployment counselor (Vera Farmiga). While any potential romance is complicated by Steven's personal baggage -- and friends like Fangora (Milla Jovovich), who can't help giving bad relationship advice -- things start to change, thanks to his devotion to his art.

  • It's the details that make Dummy such a winner. By way of comparison, consider last summer's "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," in which each actor put a heartfelt spin on his or her one-joke character (the father who believes that Windex cures everything). Well, here's an entire movie built on nuggets like that. show more

  • Jovovich needed a steadying hand to keep her from flying out of her socks, and Pritikin, on his maiden solo as a director, couldn't or didn't have the heart to provide it. show more

  • What could have been a biting dark comedy is, instead, uninspired and generic. The contrived, everybody's-happy finale just makes things worse. show more
