What to know

critics consensus

It doesn't honor its source material -- or its immensely likable leads -- as well as it should, but Dinner for Schmucks offers fitfully nourishing comedy. Read critic reviews

Though he declines the invitation at first, he changes his mind when he meets Barry (Steve Carell), a man who builds dioramas using stuffed mice.

    It's kind of a good movie, but not one of the best.

    I did not see this film being the comedy of the year, fortunately the funny parts of this film come nice and swiftly not to mention some of the bumps on the road to the dinner, but it leaves you with a question, with so much talent why is steve carrell put into films that dont exceed his talent?

    Despite being other buddy comedy where one is dumb and the another is a victim and doesn't looks better that the original picture, Dinner for Schmucks it's an agonizing and funny dark comedy, with a charming and very likable cast.

    This movie was great, and had an interesting story... it was hilarious, inspirational and was a very feel good movie, and i liked the ending... It could have been better though some scenes went a little over the top.
