This is a remake of the (rather excellent) French film Le Dîner de Cons , but is in no way an equal to it. As usual, the Americans have simplified and over egged it to such a degree that it is not funny. I really like Steve Carell in the American version of The Office but this was just embarrassing, so l only tolerated about half an hour before cursing and heading for the off switch. Thank God l didn't pay to see this at the pictures. Crap.
