to Dinner for Schmucks
Rudd plays Tim, an aspiring executive with a gorgeous, smart
girlfriend Julie (Stephanie Szostak) and the chance of a big
promotion he hopes will impress her enough to get her to say
"yes" and marry him.
one thing lies between Tim and that big job - he must find
a schmuck to entertain his slimy boss (Bruce Greenwood) at
a monthly dinner party he hosts. Top prize goes to the executive
who brings the biggest idiot to these dinners.
thinks the idea is horrible, and though Tim promises her he
won`t go through with it, he really wants that job.
So when Tim literally runs into Barry (Steve Carell), a goofy
loner who recreates historical scenes using stuffed, dead
mice, he figures he`s on to a winner . . . with a loser.
Barry causes chaos in Tim`s life before they even get to the
dinner party and Tim soon finds himself dumped by Julie.
all a little too strange and out there, though Carell is on
top form as usual.
couple of good featurettes are included.
