Watch Video Trailer For Dinner For Schmucks Starring Steve Carell and Paul Rudd

Movie Preview: Rudd and Carell in Dinner For Schmucks

Philosophical question: if two actors are hilarious together on screen, will they work in any movie? Maybe, if it's Paul Rudd and Steve Carell, previous costars in The 40 Year Old Virgin and Anchorman. The setup for Dinner For Schmucks is not exactly scintillating (or explained well in the trailer): in order to get a promotion, Tim (Rudd) has to attend one of his boss's dinners, where the goal is to bring and humiliate a guest.

The French movie is really, really funny - so funny that I'm actually afraid this one won't be as good. But I will keep my faith in Steve Carrell, so fingers crossed!!
