Everybody’s already used all the “shmucks” jokes up, dammit

July 28, 2010 at 4:40 pm (The Movie I'm not Seeing this Weekend) (, )

Like: “If you go see Dinner for Schmucks, you’re the real schmuck.” (Because you want to be punished, either by the reviewer or the movie itself.)

Why is the teaser poster a closeup of half of Steve Carell's and Paul Rudd's faces? Am I missing the joke?

Or: “Dinner for Schmucks, it sure sucks.” (Rhyming is always funny. Don’t trust me, ask my bunny!)

I've waited far too long to use a cute bunny photo on this blog. AWWWWWWW! Cute bunny! Cute bunny!

Or: “Dinner for Schmucks is like a four-course dinner that saves the best for last.” (Actually, that one’s not very funny.)

Here's a tip: Make your first course alcohol so that everybody is drunk and doesn't realize how badly the rest of the courses suck.

Or: “Steve Carell is no schmuck!” (Ha, ha, you know he totally is, though.)

Or: “The original French film was better.” (That has to be a joke, because when are the French ever better than us at anything?) (Also, would that be classified as jingoism or racism? Is French a race? Should I have paid more attention in sociology?)

Ha, ha, I'm just kidding. No one should pay more attention in sociology class.

At any rate, for these jokes and more, I’ll just say this: Dinner for Schmucks looks very, very not funny, and I’m a little weary of Paul Rudd.

It's like he's just TOO charming, you know?

    The way the voice over guy on the tv ads pronounces “schmucks” bugs me. It sounds like he’s saying “Smucks”.

    When it should sound like…
