CS said this is a dumb, obnoxious comedy about immature men. I disagree on the fact that it's obnoxious. The comedy made me laugh, and while some of the antics are deffinately immature, there's a sweet spot in the movie. That said, there is a lot that children and younger teens shouldn't see.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (4 ):

Obnoxious and monotonous, YOU, ME AND DUPREE is yet another movie making fun of immature men and the women who put up with them. Following the path laid down by the R-rated hits, The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Wedding Crashers, this movie uses sexual activity and wild physical violence (as well as some crude language) to showcase Dupree's disruptiveness.

Painfully formulaic, this is one of those movies where, if only the couple would have one honest conversation within the first half-hour, the rest of it would be unnecessary. Dupree looks blissful compared to his married friends, who feel hemmed in and humiliated. Lack of logic typifies the film, as Molly comes to care for Dupree and Dupree provides earnest life lessons for Carl. In the end, Dupree pronounces the moral about "believing in yourself," first for Molly's young students, and then for Carl, drunk and depressed in a bar. While it might seem sweet, it also feels cynical.
