IN SHORT: nnn. [Rated PG-13 . minutes]
Carl and Molly Peterson (Matt Dillon and Kate Hudson) are just starting their new life together-complete with a cute house, boring neighbors, stable jobs and the routines of newlywed existence. There's just one unfortunate hitch in their perfectly constructed new world ... And his name's Dupree.
Randy Dupree (Owen Wilson), Carl's
oldest friend and perpetual bachelor, has found himself with nowhere
to go after being fired. Carl yanks his jobless/homeless pal out of the
bar he's living in and invites him to temporarily crash on
the couch-that's just what friends do. At first,
Carl is quite pleased to have his good buddy as a permanent couch guest,
while Molly bears the brunt of Dupree's immature antics. But, as Carl
becomes buried in his grown-up job, he finds it harder and harder to
juggle Dupree and his responsibilities as a husband. To make matters
worse, Dupree uses his ample spare time to become a great companion for
Molly. Even her dad (Michael Douglas) and the neighbors are falling for
his carefree wisdom and charm-frustrating Carl to no end. Soon,
everyone (but Carl) begins to root for Dupree to stick around. But as
Dupree starts to become a fixture in the Peterson's home, three
becomes not just a crowd...but a full-blown, hilarious catastrophe.
On average, a first run movie ticket will run you Ten Bucks. Were Cranky able to set his own price to You, Me and Dupree , he would have paid . . .
