You, Me and Dupree (2006)



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

Critic Reviews for You, Me and Dupree

All Critics (167) | Top Critics (41)

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.

Top Critic

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

Full Review… | December 28, 2010

Not a single laugh here

Full Review… | August 30, 2009

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

Full Review… | February 27, 2009

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.

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 cliché 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

A funny and interesting movie, but it really had nottory or point to it.
