Just as he is beginning to agree with her, he meets Barry Steve Carell. Steve Carell is reprising the late and much-regretted role played by Jacques Villeret. While the latter was believable as tax inspector with an interest in building structures out of toothpicks, Carell as a half-looney artistic taxidermist is way over the top. Tim's girlfriend tries to convince him the whole idea is abhorrent. Like all the people in the room i laugh my ass of. I still can remember the 1st time i seen it in theater 12 years ago.
Instead of subtitling the original, they went for a remake Ã la sauce amÃ©ricaine. The idea, presumably, is that good performances can boost a weak script into something amusing. Anyway it doesn't work, and this one is the worst movie iv seen this year. Synopsis When he finds out that his work superiors host a dinner celebrating the idiocy of their guests, a rising executive questions it when he's invited, just as he befriends a man who would be the perfect guest. Just as he is beginning to agree with her, he meets Barry Steve Carell. The same cannot be said for David Walliams Little Britain , whose Swiss, aristocratic character, Mueller, is completely redundant in every way.
Jemaine Clement Flight of the Conchords as avant-garde artiste, Kieran, makes the most of his characters nonsequiturs but only manages to raise a smirk at best. In comparison this had so much plot complexity we find out why Carroll does the things he does in such delicate layering that it is quite breathtaking. Im surprise to see that many people finding this one hilarious. Producer Sacha Baron Cohen Borat, Bruno , seems to have called in a number of favours from celebrity friends and cast them in every available role. The idea, presumably, is that good performances can boost a weak script into something amusing.
It was full of witty dialogue and, at 80 minutes long, it worked. A competition run by white-collar executives and disguised as a celebration of brilliance in unrecognised individuals. The producers should be spanked. Crowd as a blind swordsman. Dinner for Schmucks starts with a premise full of comedic opportunities, but spends the next hour and a half ignoring these. May be the fact i see the original movie, knowning the mecanic of the script. When David Guion and Michael Handelman put there hands on this script not only did they change the whole idea of the movie they also transformed it's meaning, the original version had a deeply ironic tone in which Francois Pignon Tim trying to do the right thing makes everything worse whereas in this version everything finishes well.
These shenanigans are distracting and sometimes shameful. Paul Rudd, on the other hand, is given little opportunity to make us laugh, playing two-dimensional straight man, Tim. My only advice, watch the original. As Carell and Galifianakis shoot mind bullets at each other, no one is having as much fun as them. It was full of witty dialogue and, at 80 minutes long, it worked.
Like all the people in the room i laugh my ass of. May be the fact i see the original movie, knowning the mecanic of the script. As often happens, Hollywood seems to have missed the point and delivered a broad and bland remake. Anyway it doesn't work, and this one is the worst movie iv seen this year. The problems with Dinner for Schmucks lie in the pacing and the writing. Jemaine Clement Flight of the Conchords as avant-garde artiste, Kieran, makes the most of his characters nonsequiturs but only manages to raise a smirk at best. Dinner for Schmucks has laughter, heart, and packs a pretty big punch in the acting category, but falls flat on originality.
A time when this look would have been a stylists shorthand for 'socially inept'. What a waste of talented people. Her its just too much and for me it make it loose all the fun. The reason why the original movie was that funny its because its was realistic in a way. My English isn't good enough to express what i fell about this movie but for me its a waste, as i said its my first review her but i had to warm people. The French original was a scream, which is why they bought the rights. With a 114 minute runtime, it is simply too long.
Of Course, this is not the case. A predictably loud and crass American interpretation of a mini-classic from France. Instead of subtitling the original, they went for a remake a la sauce americaine. So he decides to accept his bosses challenge; bring an 'idiot' to their annual 'Dinner for Winners'. The jokes fly minute by minute and the characters grow in every scene; However, the film takes too much time to get to the point, and I actually almost forgot about the dinner altogether by the end.
