1st time i'm writing a review on IMDb, but i had to say how bad is this
Im french and the original movie "Le diner de con" was one of the
funniest movies have ever seen. I still can remember the 1st time i
seen it in theater 12 years ago. Like all the people in the room i
laugh my ass of. I cry by laughing so hard during all the movie (sorry
for my English). And every time i saw it again on video, the magic
The only time i laugh in "Dinner for Schmucks" was in the very
beginning when we see the mouses pictures. I thought it was well found
, a good idea for the lobby of the "idiot". After that, nothing… Few
smiles in the first part of the movie but thats all.
Im a big fan of Steve Carrel but in this movie his character is too
idiot, its too much. The reason why the original movie was that funny
its because its was realistic in a way. Her its just too much and for
me it make it loose all the fun. And its like that for all the
character and the situation.
Very hard to go to the end of this movie.. In fact during watching it i
had to check on IMDb to see some reviews to see if i was the only one
who didn't laugh at all. Im surprise to see that many people finding
this one hilarious. May be the fact i see the original movie, knowning
the mecanic of the script. But i try to see this one with a fresh eye.
Anyway it doesn't work, and this one is the worst movie iv seen this
year. My English isn't good enough to express what i fell about this
movie but for me its a waste, as i said its my first review her but i
had to warm people. My only advice, watch the original.
Again, sorry for my English, i just hope you get the the point.
