Jul 28, 2010 · “Dinner for Schmucks” was inspired by Francis Veber's French film “The Dinner Game,” which was an enormous hit in France but seemed a shade on the mean side. The genius of this version depends on the performance by Steve Carell , who plays Barry Speck as a man impervious to insult and utterly at peace with himself.

Veber and I appreciate that Roach tried to tell the story in an American context (the main character is a business guy instead of a famous publisher) but the jokes are so over the top it just becomes ridiculous.
