Dinner For Schmucks

Steve Carell and Paul Rudd ham it up in this perplexingly unfunny, mean-spirited remake of a French comedy, bogged-down with excessive, annoying toilet humor, and a predictable plot. “Dinner for Schmucks” fails to shock or surprise at every turn.

Role Models

After he defaces a statue with a monster truck, Paul Rudd and Sean William Scott must play role model to two troubled youths in this hilarious, raunchy comedy. “Role Models” earns big points for its incredibly well-rounded cast, memorable gags, and feel-good tone.

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy

Will Ferrell leads a team of dopey anchormen in this hilarious, if inconsistent satire of news casting. “Anchorman” is brimming with personality and ripe with endless quotable dialogue, though often becomes too silly for its own good, with one extended sequence taking place in a back alleyway sticking out like a sore thumb. Regardless, it is easy to recommend for the laughs it brings.
