The comedy DINNER FOR SCHMUCKS tells the story of Tim (Paul Rudd), an up-and-coming executive who has just received his first invitation to the "dinner for idiots," a monthly event hosted by his boss that promises bragging rights (and maybe more) to the exec that shows up with the biggest buffoon.
Tim's fiancee, Julie (Stephanie Szostak), finds it distasteful and Tim agrees to skip the dinner, until he bumps into Barry (Steve Carell) - an IRS employee who devotes his spare time to building elaborate taxidermy mouse dioramas - and quickly realizes he's struck idiot gold. Tim can't resist, and invites Barry along.
But Barry's blundering good intentions soon send Tim's life into a frenzied downward spiral when a series of comic misadventures, threaten a major business deal, and bring crazy stalker ex-girlfriend, Darla Lucy Punch), back into Tim's life. The repercussions of this drive Julie (or so Tim thinks) into the arms of another man.
