THURS­DAY DIN­NER FOR SCHMUCKS

WITH LEIGH PAATSCH

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - FRONT PAGE -

8.30PM, 9GO! The open­ing cred­its say the film was “in­spired by” the 1998 hit French com­edy The Din­ner Game. But if you’re look­ing to find any in­spi­ra­tion, you’d bet­ter bring a wild imag­i­na­tion. Paul Rudd plays an ex­ec­u­tive in­vited to a din­ner where guests are asked to bring along the big­gest id­iot they know. Steve Carell’s kitsch artist – who crafts his works from dead mice – fits the bill. There are a few snack­sized bites of snappy sur­re­al­ism, but too many bland in­gre­di­ents.
