Dinner for Schmucks review

Categories:

Dinner for Schmucks
Director: Jay Roach
With: Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, Stephanie Szostak, Jemaine Clement, Zach Galifianakis, Lucy Punch, etc.

Where to begin?  I know.  My memory ain’t what it used to be.  I recalled that I wasn’t so fond of the French original, titled The Dinner Game here, but I looked up my 1999 review, and I gave the movie an A-, normally the highest grade I give.
Here are my notes for that review: Wonderfully snide little French comedy, from the director of “La Cage aux Folles.”  Smug intelligence defeated by well-meaning idiocy.  Plays with our emotions and perceptions for a real purpose.  Go see it!
Here is my review for Dinner for Schmucks: Don’t go see it.

From Jim Thompson’s horrifying 1952 novel, which should be read.
Lou Ford (Affleck) is a deputy sheriff in Central City, Texas.  Sexually abused and warped as a child, his evil impulses are just below the surface, and they emerge as he enters a brutal sado-masochistic relationship with a prostitute, Joyce (Alba).  He was supposed to run her out of town, but instead he teams up with her to blackmail the local town rich guy (Beatty), whose son was involved with Joyce.
