Storyline

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 mystic80

Could be alternately titled "The Tao of DuPree"
22 July 2006 | by (Topeka,Kansas,USA) – See all my reviews

Randy DuPree(Owen Wilson,as laid-back and off-beat as ever) is the kind of friend that people sit and talk about: a kooky,non-conventional sort who means well but finds a way to get himself or others into trouble. He's got an almost savant-like way about him,an ability to learn stuff and self-motivate,but he's also pretty much living in the moment,still knowing how to have fun.

And shortly after his buddy Carl(Matt Dillon)gets married to Molly(Kate Hudson),DuPree's now in need of a home. Being almost life-long friends,Carl agrees to help out DuPree,believing he's only going to be on their hands "for a few days,until he gets back on his feet".

So begins the premise of this movie,where DuPree's persona of ease clashes with the straight,upright(read:grown-up)lifestyle of his married friends.

For the most part,this movie is just like DuPree himself:laid-back,funny and earnest. For the most part it works,in large part due to the fact that the principles in the story Wilson,Dillon and Hudson are able to fill their roles perfectly and play off of each other evenly. My biggest problem with the movie was the fact that it seemed like it was never too sure WHICH DuPree it was trying to bring forth:the doofy,kid-like slacker or the savant-like potential jack-of-all trades. Also,the relationship shifts in the movie were so sharp that one might be confused and/or skeptical of just how well this would play out.Directors Anthony and Joe Russo don't seem to have any problem with this,opting to go with a fast flow of jokes and character interplay.

While I sorta get why this film hasn't been getting great reviews,I still think this film is a fun summer flick. I suppose if you like this DuPree character,then you're gonna appreciate this movie,because it is mostly built around him,as per the subject summary line.
