Argh, where should I start? This movie blows, man. I'm not saying it's bad, but just plain blows. Sure, it had its moments of fun and chuckle. But I wasn't paying much attention with this movie. Dull as spoon, but still lickable although I don't recommend much. Cheesy and sour cream but with a bitter taste.
Molly (Kate Hudson) and Carl (Matt Dillon) just got married and they are in their honeymoon period. Dupree (Owen Wilson) lost his apartment, his car, and his job, and he is crashing down at the newlyweds house supposedly for a few days. During the course of those days, Dupree manages to make their live a living hell. Meanwhile, Carl has to face the fact that his father-in-law, Bob (Michael Douglas) hates his guts.
I am so bored watching this movie. It was slow, it was predictable, it was un-funny, and I kept wondering what the hell is Matt Dillon doing in this movie. He's not a comedy material, the guy is so serious except when he was in "There's Something About Mary", which I admit was a damn hilarious. But he just got an Oscar nod nomination from the movie "Crash", man. Why he lowered himself to act in this stupid comedy? I guess a job is a job. Well, nice dedication. But watching him in this movie made me sad, 'cause he didn't even tickle my funny bone. Meanwhile, Owen Wilson managed to disgust me with his erratic behavior in this movie which apparently based in his actual life. Kate Hudson done nothing just being an eye-candy. Michael Douglas bored me. Did you see "The Break-Up"? Well this movie is basically the same movie, but much better. At least there were some parts I got a chuckle.
The plot is jumpy around at times and predictable to a boring level. Over the course of the movie or so, we're treated to a series of toilet and masturbation jokes and more than a few life lessons from a man who won't grow up but who "lives, loves, and laughs" to the fullest. We also have to watch Carl be sorely used and abused by his boss and father-in-law. Matt Dillon is a good actor. I thought he was absolutely incredible. But he's wasted here on a series of apologies and incredulous looks. Even Dupree decides that Lance Armstrong cameo has all the answers. How many times does Lance Armstrong appeared in the Frat-Pack movie, huh? Everyone seems treat him like a god or something. Yes, the guy had cancer, but it doesn't mean he knows everything. It sicken me to see him in every movie, giving advices. Of course, bad things happen, understandings are reached, and everybody learns something before the all too predictable end. Yawn.
Due to my hectic schedule, I will not be able to review all new movies every week. I apologize. I will however review some older movies from DVDs from time to time. Thank you for understanding.
