Paul Rudd and Julie Yaeger Pictures: Paul Rudd and wife Julie Yaeger arrive on the red carpet at the "Dinner For Schmucks" premiere held at the Ziegfeld Theatre on July 19, 2010 in New York City.
Tim is an up-and-coming executive who has just received his first invitation to the "dinner for idiots," a monthly event hosted by his boss that promises bragging rights to the exec that shows up with the biggest buffoon. Tim's fiancee, Julie, finds it distasteful and Tim agrees to skip the dinner, until he bumps into Barry–an IRS employee who devotes his spare time to building elaborate taxidermy mouse dioramas–and quickly realizes he's struck idiot gold. Tim can't resist, and invites Barry, whose blundering good intentions soon sends Tim's life into a frenzied downward spiral and a series of misadventures, threatening a major business deal, bringing crazy stalker ex-girlfriend, Darla, back into Tim's life and driving Julie into the arms of another man.
"Dinner For Schmucks" opens in theaters nationwide on July 30.
