Just saw "Dinner for Schmucks." Belated recommendation. Very, very funny.

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

Not nearly as good as the original. In fact I found this remake virtually unwatchable.

I've seen "Le Dîner de Cons" and agree that it's very funny, worth seeing

Agreed. Couldn't finish watching it. Too much of ole Steve being Steve. Kind of like these screechy teens on America Idol...a little goes a long way.

Is the french original w/ subtitles available?

NOT barbarian...just Unfrenchified.
I stopped being a barbarian in my late 30's.

...maybe mid 40's.

Watched Le Diner de Cons last night. Somehow I got the impression from this thread that it would be "great cinema"--whatever that is. Well, it's not. But it is very funny. Squirm-worthy in parts, but very funny.

Thanks for the heads up. Maybe I'll check out Dinner for Schmucks in the next little while.

Amazing how many films are remakes. Amazing how many are remakes of remakes . . . and so on.
