A rather generic entry into the arrested development subgenre, with themes borrowed from other more successful and funnier films. Dupree wears out its welcome.

Movie Info

A man is being driven crazy by his shiftless best friend, just as the layabout starts making nice with his wife and neighbors in this comedy. Carl and Molly (Matt Dillon and Kate Hudson) are a thirtysomething couple who have just gotten married and are settling down into a cozy new home in a quiet neighborhood. While Carl and Molly are happy with their new digs, Carl's best friend, Randy Dupree (Owen Wilson), is not content with his living arrangements. Dupree has all but made a career out of

A bit dull, since Dillon's constrained playing the straight guy, Hudson has little to work with, and Douglas looks bored.

You, Me and Dupree overstays its welcome but a compilation reel of Wilson's scenes would make for fairly funny viewing.

Owen Wilson is perilously close to doing a Dupree on his own career, by wearing out his welcome.

You, Me and Dupree seems to have been made by people who don't know the difference between a light comedy and an inconsequential one.

Amiable if ragtag.

This is the worst movie Wilson has made since he graduated from being Jackie Chan's punch line.

You, Me and Dupree is an inconsistent trifle - by turns cute and annoying - and not much more.

Not a single laugh here

August 30, 2009 Full Review Source: CinePassion

The film is a mishmash of half-baked jokes, sitcom scenarios and Owen Wilson attempting to float by on his charm.

February 27, 2009 Full Review Source: CHUD

This is one of the worst scripts in the history of major-studio motion pictures: inconsistent, undeveloped, predictable, poorly thought-out -- hopeless on every level.

While Mr. Wilson is a likeable guy in small (re: supporting) doses, a whole movie's worth of his shtick can become tiresome.

...Seth Rogen, so funny in "The 40-Year Old Virgin," gets laughs as a husband who doesn't realize he's henpecked.

Owen Wilson just does what he does, and allows you to take it or leave it. You, Me and Dupree, then, suffers a slow start and trades too frequently in broad, garish strokes before rallying with some late atypical turns.

Wilson goes from crashing weddings to crashing newlyweds in a comedy that's as tired as week-old wedding cake.

An oddly likeable film that grows on you if you're willing to stick with it.

A dire cuckoo-in-the-nest comedy.

There's the odd giggle, but nowhere near enough to keep things going.

Enjoyable comedy with Owen Wilson on fine comic form, this is a lot better than its trailer suggests.

... As stale and formulaic as it gets.

It's not seamless, but Wilson fans can safely roll out the welcome mat.

Despite the clashing comedic styles, a game cast ... finds a few nuggets of truth and warmth, and several full-tilt belly laughs.

Audience Reviews for You, Me and Dupree

You, Me and Dupree AI felt was a mediocre film with a few laughs, but in the end really didn't stand out. The film is funny, but I felt that something was missing to really make it special. I felt that the film could have been much better than it turned out to be. The films content was clich and you could see it was struggling with its material in trying to create something good. However, the end result is a mediocre film with a few laughs. The cast aren't that great, but they do what they can to make this film work. Unfortunately, the result is a mediocre comedy. I feel that the film could have been much better than this, and it had a pretty good idea ruined by a poor script, and a mediocre cast. This film has a few laughs, but is never anything great. Like I said, the film could have turned out better. This is a forgettable comedy, one that doesn't stand out and isn't really worth watching again and again. There is something missing in this film to really make it stand out, and it doesn't do that. You, Me and Dupree is not worth your time, and there are better comedies out there for you to watch. If you want a mildly amusing film, then this is the film to watch. However the film doesn't stand out, and you're better off watching something else. This film is a prime example of a film that could have been good, but instead became a pointless, tiring film in the process. Comical, but it doesn't stand out. A mediocre cast and poor script rounds out this film, and makes this film a film not really worth seeing.

I debated if this movie was even worth rating, not really. Seth Rogen's brief cameo, as I refer to it as, is the only laugh during the whole two hours
