    Steve Carell sucks. not funny.

    Sitting here trying to watch Dinner for Schmucks and Carell is by FAR the worst part of the movie. The cast around him is pretty solid but he sucks.

    He was fine in that movie. It just wasn't a great movie.

    omg, I watched it last night and thought the very same thing (I thought the whole movie was awful, except for the mouse dioramas.) Every time I see a Steve Carrell movie I try to think of something I liked him in other than The Office and The Daily Show, and I come up dry.

    I missed previous threads on this subject so I will take advantage and concur with Warfarer; Carrell is... I think the word I want is unctuous, at least in the parts he chooses to play. My jury's still out though - if he took a role completely different than the 'highly functional' types he's always doing I would be willing to give him a look (I'm thinking of something along the lines of Robin Williams in One Hour Photo.)

    Right now though, he makes me highly irritated just by appearing on my television screen.

    Jim Carrey could have made the Dinner for Schmucks role edgier.

    Was never a fan but I also never saw the Office so maybe I'm missing something.

    I dunno.

    He does suck yet zombies still flock to see his bombs.

    I watched the frist two seasons of The Office and enjoyed it. Then it just got tired and his character was just not cutting it anymore.

    That's a great point. Jim Carrey did an amazing job in "Cable Guy" making that movie dark and edgy, I like Paul Rudd a lot but there is no way he could pull this movie off.

    That's like picking through a sewer trying to identify the worst-smelling piece of shit.

    Many times bad screenwritting is misinterpreted for bad acting. If there's a horrid screenplay with Laurence Olivier in the starring role he would take the brunt of critiscism.

    So true. It's rare that you get a good performance in a bad film.
