Mike: Hi this is Mike from thesubstream.com. And this is the Dinner For Schmucks episode of Watch This Instead.
Instructed by a guy name Jay Roach who previously Dinner For Schmucks directed and made a bunch of money for a bunch of people, the Austin Powers movies as well as the Meet the Parents movies. Dinner For Schmucks stars Steve Carell and Zach Galifianakis as two of the four mentioned schmucks who are invited to a dinner in their dubious honor, the idea being that rich people invite idiots to dinner and then laugh at them rich people there is so mean.
By a character played by Paul Rudd who is the exact same character that Paul Rudd has played in almost every single other movie that he is been in. The movie is not terrible but it's trendily not good it's about as bad as you could possibly imagine in being with such a talented cast there is a handful of legitimately funny scenes including the Dinner For Schmucks scene that happens about an hour and a half in the movie for some reason. And itself only lasts for 12 or 15 minutes but overall the film is way too long, way, way too long almost two hours which is impossibly long for a light comedy movie and it's that long because it tries to tell this really not interesting story about the straight man in the film, that character played by Paul Rudd and his relationship with his fiancé saying the relationship is continuously sabotaged by a Schmuck played by Steve Carell now Paul Rudd shouldn't be in this film not him as an actor but him as a character, his character shouldn't certainly shouldn't be the hero of the film.
He is a boring straight man that gets flustered and frustrated like straight man do but for some reason he is the center of this film around which the chaos orbits and everything that's not that chaos, that's not really good Steve Carell and Zach Galifianakis slaps that, it feels like flab and it feels like flab because it is flab, because it's boring and pointless and cheese ball and it feels completely extraneous to the heart of the movie, which is Steve Carell and Zach Galifianakis being funny.
Paul Rudd is a talented guy but he shouldn't be in this film. So what did you watch instead of Dinner For Schmucks watch the funniest film ever made, Blake Edwards and Peter Sellers collaboration that isn't the Pink Panther movies the classic brilliantly funny The Party.
Peter Sellers plays Bakshi an idiot Indian actor that's accidentally invited do a swank Hollywood party.
Sellers Bakshi posses that perfect never better than in this film crystalline clear idiots logic, Blake Edwards keeps setting him up in the film and Sellers keeps knocking them down.
We see a box with a dynamite plunger on top of it, we see Bakshi noticed that he's got a loose shoe lase, we see Bakshi see the dynamite plunger and then look it is loose shoe lase and we don't need to see the explosion then happens, when Bakshi steps on the plunger and tie his shoe we know it's going to happen because it's got that perfect crystalline idiot inevitability that comes from a perfectly constructed joke.
And The Party is full of them, full of them, for almost two hours. Steve Carell and Dinner For Schmucks sometimes in a handful maybe three or four scenes in the film approaches Seller's level of perfect idiot clarity but unfortunately Dinner For Schmucks spends way too much time telling a story that nobody is actually interested about a character that's not funny and I don't know why is in a comedy movie to begin with. So what do you watch instead of Dinner For Schmucks watch The Party instead.
