Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and Zach Galifianakis in Dinner For Schmucks trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I should love everything about the comedy DINNER FOR SCHMUCKS. It has an incredible cast that includes Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Zach Galifianakis, Jemaine Clement, Lucy Punch, Ron Livingston and Bruce Greenwood. The premise is hilarious in that a young executive (Rudd) is obligated to go to a dinner party with his boss where he and his colleagues do nothing but humiliate unknowing guests. But something about this trailer didn’t resonate with me. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but I didn’t laugh and now I’m less excited to see it than when I was just reading about it. Hopefully this will be one of those films that’s funnier than what the previews lead on.
Jay Roach (MEET THE FOCKERS) directs the film that’s opening July 23rd. Watch the trailer here.
