The A.V. Club
You, Me And Dupree isn't terribly democratic about spreading the laughs around; whenever Wilson disappears from the screen, the comedy evaporates in kind.
67
Entertainment Weekly
Isn't a very funny movie (it preaches nonconformity in the rote style of an overlit sitcom), but Wilson, at least, keeps it afloat.
63
Chicago Tribune
The end product feels less funny than formulaic.
60
Variety
A middling third-wheel comedy elevated a couple of notches by the ineffably weird charms of Owen Wilson.
50
The Hollywood Reporter
The comedy is obvious and flat while the drama is stale. They did do one thing right, however: They attracted a stellar cast.
50
ReelViews
A mess of conflicting tones and missed opportunities. The only one to emerge unscathed is Kate Hudson, who exhibits qualities she has rarely shown since her breakthrough role in "Almost Famous."
40
Austin Chronicle
As far as disposable entertainment goes, it gets the job done.
40
A limp attempt to wed a romantic comedy to a buddy comedy, largely because the filmmakers see women as visitors from another planet, which is more or less what they now are in Hollywood.
30
Village Voice
The movie goes from being another mildly depressing lump of unrealized comic potential to being an actively unpleasant experience.
30
Artistically, You, Me and Dupree is a mess. Technically, it's an abomination. Spiritually, it's a void. Commercially, it'll probably be a big hit.
