Having just watched the film i had to jump on here real quick to share my thoughts. Dinner For Schmucks has a new breed of hilarity that i'm proud to be an observer of. Choice of casting was great from the familiar yet ancient "Friend's" leading man to the Little Britian co-star.
A Brilliant build up to a warm fuzzy finish, it has the animated craziness of a Disney film mixed with real life yet so off the wall characters that you have to love them, it's hard not to. Some funny quotes and 1 liners to be stored in the memory bank, along with an easy going soundtrack is too good to be true.
The only reason i gave this picture a 9 was because i was hoping for just a little more R rated content, but regardless of having no explicit Tits & Ass this is definitely worth watching, i highly recommend it. The Moto? pretty simple actually..don't judge a book by its cover, even if its name IS Barry :)
