You, Me and Dupree
offers absolutely nothing original. A thin comedy about an unwanted roommate, its a series of recycled third-leg jokes with very few that hit the mark. Owen Wilson displays the most abrasive aspects of his acting personality for nearly two hours. His Dupree character is too annoying, brainless and revolting to be even remotely funny. Wilsons surfer-boy, dimwitted shtick can be awesomely tiresome when the material isnt up to snuff, and this is his worst film yet. Matt Dillon is required to just stand around as Duprees generous buddy, and Kate Hudson tries to make the best of a nothing role. Michael Douglas is given one of the more ridiculous roles in his long and storied career, playing Dillons ridiculously evil father-in-law. The laughs are few, but there are groans aplenty.
