The cover for Dupree's book, "Seven Different Kinds of Smoke", exactly mimics the cover for Lance Armstrong's book, "It's Not About the Bike", which is mentioned a couple of times in the movie. Dupree reads Lance's book, and at the end, Lance reads Dupree's book. See more »
When Dupree makes breakfast for Molly and Carl, he puts a large yellow bowl (the one he used the day before to catch the water from the overflowing toilet) on the breakfast table. In the next shot, the bowl is gone. See more »

Now when Molly told me that she was going to marry Carl, I said "Who?" She said "Daddy, he works for you." I said, "Honey, I've got 1,200 employees nationwide." But then, I started to worry. Maybe he was some young buck trying to push me aside, grab the reins of my company.
And then I met Carl, sitting in cubicle 26. And I said, "You know, I like my chances."

(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 »
I honestly liked it. It was funny, had a good story line, and even though it ended like I predicted, it was cute. Yes, Owen Wilson is playing his usual character, but it suits him best, so I say let him do it. Kate Hudson and Matt Dillon are a cute couple and they did a great job in this movie. Plus, Matt Dillon is a good-looking man, even for a forty-sum year old!
Although I enjoyed the movie, as well as the acting, Michael Douglas did not impress me at all. He didn't have much of a relevant part in the movie, other than distracting "Carl" from his home life. Also, I felt it dragged on a bit. But, overall, I enjoyed it, and the others with me in the theater did too.
