Watch This: First Trailer for Jay Roach's Dinner for Schmucks
Paramount has finally debuted the first trailer for Austin Power director Jay Roach's new comedy Dinner for Schmucks which stars Steve Carell and Paul Rudd. They're also joined by a great supporting cast including Jemaine Clement, Zach Galifianakis, Bruce Greenwood, Ron Livingston and Lucy Punch. I first titled this "must watch" but after actually watching the trailer, I decided otherwise, simply because there's not much that makes me laugh nowadays and this definitely falls into that category. Why is Steve Carell the absolute dumbest idiot around? I didn't laugh once at this, sadly, because it actually had some potential.

Tim is a rising executive who finds the perfect guest, IRS employee Barry, for his boss's monthly event, a so-called "dinner for idiots," which offers advantages to the exec who shows up with the biggest buffoon.
Dinner for Schmucks is directed by Jay Roach, of all three Austin Powers movies as well as Mystery Alaska, Meet the Parents and Meet the Fockers. The script was written by a lot of writers, including Andy Borowitz, Ken Daurio, David Guion, Michael Handelman, Cinco Paul, Francis Veber and Jon Vitti. Too many cooks in the kitchen, possibly? Paramount is bringing Dinner for Schmucks to theaters on July 23rd this summer.
