Don't believe the misleading trailers. There's more to laugh at than they would have you believe.

Occasionally quite funny, and oddly relevant to the nature of our culture, but this dinner is a little underwhelming.

Not quite the four star comedic meal it promises at the outset, Dinner for Schmucks makes for a tasty repast, nonetheless.

There's a little more going on in it than you might expect from a summer comedy starring Steve Carell and Paul Rudd.

Dinner for Schmucks might start out as an exercise in laughing at idiots but it turns into something much more rewarding.

Provides a great showcase for Carell's brand of deadpan nuttiness.

Rudd and Carell turn out to be a near-perfect double act, with Rudd's exasperated, manic nice guy act a perfect foil for Carell, who gives the kind of broad, nutty, idiot man-child performance we haven't seen from him since his Anchorman days.

Dinner for Schmucks, while not as instantly iconic and defined as [Jay Roach's] previous work, still delivers a lot of entertainment.

Dinner For Schmucks is hilariously entertaining. Its pointed messages, meanwhile, make it even more meaningful.

While a touch lean on the laughs, there's just about enough humour to make it worth catching...

This isn't the summer's best comedy, but at this point in the season, when movies typically take a turn for the worse before better fare appears in the fall, it comes through with enough laughs to make it worth a look.

a flawed, but very funny movie that gets less than it probably should out of an all-star comedic cast.

its primary virtue is its sheer and relatively unpredictable ridiculousness

Every time I think back to scenes from this movie, I just see Barry smiling at me. It's a sweet charm that I didn't expect from this movie and it totally works.

These aren't the kind of laughs that will add points to your IQ. You may actually lose a couple by the time it's all over. But that's OK, because the goofy Dinner for Schmucks doesn't require much brain strain to appreciate.
