“Steve Carell is a comic wonder” and “Paul Rudd is terrific” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) in the hilarious and “genius” (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times) comedy DINNER FOR SCHMUCKS, setting a date on DVD and Blu-ray January 4, 2011 from Paramount Home Entertainment. Directed by Jay Roach (Meet The Parents, Meet The Fockers), who was awarded Comedy Director of the Decade at ShoWest in 2010, DINNER FOR SCHMUCKS is the “outrageously funny” (Shaun Edwards, Fox-TV) and heartwarming story of a rising executive (Rudd) who inadvertently finds a way to fast-track his career by participating in his boss’s exclusive dinner party, at which the winning executive brings the biggest buffoon. Enter Barry (Carell), an IRS employee with a penchant for creating historical dioramas with mice, and you have a recipe for one outrageous dinner and “the funniest movie since The Hangover” (ABC 7 News).
The film also boasts an extraordinary supporting cast of comedic talent including Zach Galifianakis (Due Date, The Hangover), Jemaine Clement (“The Flight of the Conchords”), Jeff Dunham (“The Jeff Dunham Show”), Bruce Greenwood (Star Trek), Ron Livingston (Office Space), Lucy Punch (You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger), David Walliams (“Little Britain USA”), Larry Wilmore (“The Office”) and Kristen Schaal (Get Him To The Greek).
