Donald Fagen and Walter Becker, of the popular 70's band "Steely Dan", addressed a humorous letter to Owen Wilson's brother, Luke, 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 possibility that Cousin Dupree and that Wilson's character Dupree both may have slept on a couch seem to be the only common links in their claims. Owen Wilson replied to this fact saying "I have never heard the song 'Cousin Dupree' and I don't even know who this gentleman, Mr. Steely Dan, is. I hope this helps to clear things up and I can get back to concentrating on my new movie, "HEY 19" (which is the title of a Steely Dan song). See more »
When Dupree is playing baseball with the neighborhood boys, he goes and talk to one of the boys where you can see a UPS truck. When he goes back a second time, the UPS truck is gone. The third time he looks over at the boy, the UPS truck is back again. See more »
Why don't you watch it in your house?

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.
