The dictionary says that "schmuck" is Yiddish for "jerk". That is not the correct term for the movie, "Dinner For Schmucks". Outrageous is a better term. We went to see it today and loved it. It is the best Steve Carell movie since "Despicable Me"! Actually it is his best! It may be the "Hangover of 2010". It has a great cast, continuous laughter and craziness. As you know it is about businessmen who invite weird people to a dinner and watch them and make fun of them.
It sounds mean spirited, but the movie shows that there is a fine line when deciding who is weird.
It is worth your time. Unlike the "Hangover" and movies like that, "Schmucks is PG13 and profanity is slight. Like all PG13 you get to play Find The F Word.
If you need a laugh, look no further. I give it ***1/2 stars.
