Somebody owes me $2

I rented this movie from Redbox and I went back to complain to the machine! This movie was so bad I was embarrassed to tell people I watched it, luckily this movie never gets brought up in conversation, ever, probably not even by Rudd or Carell. I feel like this movie was thrown together when it should have just been thrown away. So basically if you ever see Rudd or Carell, tell them I want my $2!!!

Dinner for Schmucks is a dreadfully bad movie! It's one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

Oh man, this was a dreadfully bad movie! I just stumbled upon it and even though it wasn't reviewed well, I liked the premise. I wasn't expecting much, but I thought I was going to get at least a little something from it. This movie takes a funny premise and essentially takes the least funny angle on every element within the movie with an over the top cartoonishly silly approach. It's a premise that needs to be treated with an element of realism that ties into the reality we are familiar with… as a result jokes would land harder and overall it would be a more enjoyable experience. This movie gives us nothing that is relatable to our world. You couldn't try to make this movie any less funny. This movie should be rated much lower than a 5.9 on IMDb.

The vast majority of the humor in this movie is sooooo cringe worthy unfunny. Sure, there are a few moments that made me laugh, but if you throw enough crap at the wall some of it's bound to stick, but it's amazing how little does. The whole storyline associated with that art dude was sooooo insanely unfunny on every level. Steve Carrell's/Barry's big theme to his character is, he creates art with dead mice…. He uses the mice to depict famous/historical people (Benjamin franklin, Jesus, etc). Seriously! That's the funniest thing they could come up with? I mean 1/5th of the movie is dedicated to this mouse joke…. I guess it's a joke? What were they thinking? The whole girlfriend/relationship storyline was painfully cliché and beyond cringeworthy and of course is consistent with being over the top silly. And the whole ex-girlfriend or whatever she was…. Seriously? Oye Vey! The Swedish couple…. redic! Then the move finally gets to the dinner and makes the audience suspend disbelief. We're supposed to believe that all the business big wigs were really enamored with Barry's weirdness as though he was a huge riot, but none of it occurred while we were watching it. He really wasn't that weird in comparison to the others and his big display with the mice wasn't really that bizarre or funny? Who knows, I'm done? This is such a repugnant piece a crap of a movie and the director and writers should be ostracized and never allowed to be a part of any creative process ever again.

Waste of a great cast

'Dinner for Schmucks' is a very poor remake attempt of a successful French film titled 'Le Diner de Cons'. On paper, this should have been a really funny film. With great comedy actors like Steve Carell, David Walliams and Zach Galifianakis, you would have thought this movie would have been impossible to mess up.

Somehow though, despite the start-studded lineup, 'Dinner for Schmucks' manages to be a totally unfunny film. I gave up and switched off after an hour, having not laughed once and found the plot and characters extremely stupid and annoying. The film just doesn't work. Not only is it not funny, but its also dull and boring. Everything you don't want in a comedy movie.

I don't normally like giving 1 star ratings and I usually reserve them for the worst of the worst, but given the total waste of a great cast on such a dreadful script, in this case I think the lowest mark is fully justified.
