  1. It’s an adaptation of a French play, which had already been turned into a huge French movie with almost the same cast. The original writer (Francis Veber) is very skilled at low-key buddy movies, even if his recent stuff can get quite formulaic.

    Unless the adaptation totally screws it up, it should be quite funny. Steve is perfect for the part, the director did “Meet The Parents” (but also the not so good sequel), which is very close in tone to this one, the supporting cast also features David Walliams (the tall guy from Little Britain), so I’m starting to be optimistic.

  2. Paul Rudd and Steve Carell together again! Yay!

    I agree with everything Steve said about Paul. Love him. :)

  3. Can’t wait to see this- but wish they had mentioned that it’s a remake of a great French film (as mentioned by Dwigt, #3) called “The Dinner Game.” VERY funny film.
