You, Me and Dupree

You, Me and Dupree

Anthony Russo, Joe Russo (2006)

12 Certificate


Our Score
Owen Wilson's laid-back slacker charm isn't enough to carry this flimsy, contrived comedy vehicle from director brothers Anthony and Joe Russo (Welcome to Collinwood). He plays the newly unemployed loser best friend of recently married Matt Dillon, who's allowed to move into the marital home - much to the annoyance of Dillon's wife Kate Hudson. A subplot involving Dillon's conflict with his father-in-law and boss (played by Michael Douglas) seems to belong in a different movie. In movies like Zoolander, Meet the Parents and The Royal Tenenbaums, Wilson has successfully sparked off the comic strengths of co-star Ben Stiller. But without an effective foil he's clearly struggling, and the bland direction makes the whole exercise feel annoyingly undercooked.


Thirtysomething slacker Dupree finds himself out of a job with nowhere to live, and turns to his newly married best friend Carl for a place to stay. But Carl comes to regret his act of hospitality as the layabout shows no sign of ever moving out - not to mention his annoyance when his new wife takes a liking to their laid-back guest. Comedy, starring Owen Wilson, Matt Dillon, Kate Hudson and Michael Douglas.
