Little Red Envelope In my mailbox this week: Dinner for Schmucks Release Year: 2010 Staring: Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Zach Galifianakis For once, in a very long time, I actually thought that Jermaine Clement (Flight of the Concords) was hilarious. Seriously.
So, there I was, watching this Dinner for Schmucks trailer. As a child of the MTV-generation-X-teh-interwebs-whatevuh, I found myself losing patience about 30 seconds in. I witnessed the forty second mark, found myself intrigued, and then proceeded to have my mind blown.
What do you get when you’ve got an up-and-coming executive (Paul Rudd), who wants to climb his way to the top of the corporate ladder, but is being held back until he attends his boss’s monthly “Dinner for idiots” with his newfound idiot friend Barry (Steve Carell)? You’ve got Dinner for Schmucks.
