For newlyweds Carl and Molly Peterson, life can't get any sweeter as they begin anew to settle down into married life. With a nice house and established careers in tow, nothing seems to get in their way. However, Carl is about find out just how much friendship means when Dupree, his best friend has been displaced from his home and fired from his job because of attending their wedding. Taking his friend in, what Carl and Molly are about to experience is that the fine line between a few days and whatever else is after, can be a lot more than they bargained for. Especially when their friend overstays his welcome in far too many ways than he should. Written by

Did You Know?
Donald Fagen and Walter Becker, of the popular 70's band Steely Dan, addressed a letter to Owen Wilson's brother, actor Luke Wilson, on their blog with claims that the idea of "You, Me and Dupree" was stolen from their song, "Cousin Dupree". (Lyrics to "Cousin Dupree" can also be found on their website.) Only the name Dupree and the possibly that Cousin Dupree and that Wilson's character Dupree both may have slept on a couch seem to be common links in their claims. See more
When Carl came home from work he poured a drink, then walked away from the bottle to talk to Dupree. In the next shot the bottle is in his hand and in the next shot the glass is again in his hand. See more
Everyone's asleep and here's lonely old Dupree waling away on himself.
You weren't waling away...
God! An animal wouldn't debase himself thus!
(Spoiler) At the end of the credits, Lance Armstrong
is shown reading Dupree's book and wondering aloud how to pronounce his "ness" name. See more
