This summer hasn’t exactly been the best when it comes to comedies, but that may come to an end next Friday as the new comedy Dinner for Schmucks starring Paul Rudd and Steve Carell hits theaters nationally.
The film stars Rudd as an up-and-coming executive who wants to succeed so badly that he falls in line with the rest of his superiors in finding a socially awkward moron to invite to an annual dinner. Enter Steve Carell, who is a walking social catastrophe.
The film reunites Rudd and Carell for the first time since 2005’s 40 Year Old Virgin and looks to have quite a bit of hilarious moments in it. Joining in the ride are other genre funnymen Ron Livingston, Zach Galifiniakis, and Flight of the Conchord’s Jemaine Clement.
We’ve got four new clips from the film for you to check out, each of which show off the dynamic of Rudd and Carell. Paul Rudd even gets to do some physical comedy, which we haven’t seen him do in quite some time.
Check out the clips after the jump, and be sure to catch Dinner For Schmucks in theaters next Friday, July 30th.
