Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"You know you're in trouble when the best thing in your movie is a bunch of dead rodents."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"With moments of fitful hilarity, the pairing of Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and a talented cast of secondary actors, there's plenty here to keep summer comedy fans satiated, if not entirely satisfied."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"Dinner For Schmucks seems promising at first but too many plot points feel forced and the humor is too dumb to enjoy."
‑ Matt Joseph, We Got This Covered
"The real schmucks are the people responsible for this movie."
‑ Greg Maki, Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
"A mediocre sitcom serving up a half-baked, TV dinner. Check please!"
‑ Kam Williams, NewsBlaze
"A decent cast wrestle with a crummy script in this loose and creaky Hollywood spin on Le Dîner de Cons..."
‑ Dave Calhoun, Time Out
"Pure, tasteless slapstick silliness with little on its mind beyond cheap yuks."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"The actors have been placed in a story that is not inherently funny, and they do what they can to muscle it, through their not inconsiderable talents, into working. It doesn't, and you can see the sweat."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"The movie suffers by stifling the [Rudd's] natural comic ability and no one comes away from it fully satisfied."
‑ Dave White, Movies.com
"While it has a few humorous moments, the characters are either so bizarre or so stereotyped and the tone so changeable, it's hard to like the movie as a whole."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"The movie has a slew of goofball moments that don't add up to a consistently hilarious outing."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"Dinner for Schmucks may be as broad as the proverbial groaning board, but Rudd and Carell bring out its most toothsome delights."
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"Don't believe the misleading trailers. There's more to laugh at than they would have you believe."
‑ Jeff Beck, Examiner.com
"Occasionally quite funny, and oddly relevant to the nature of our culture, but this dinner is a little underwhelming."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"Not quite the four star comedic meal it promises at the outset, Dinner for Schmucks makes for a tasty repast, nonetheless."
‑ Richard Knight, Knight at the Movies
