Meet the House Guest From Hell Randy Dupree, a wide-eye bachelor slacker who out-stays his welcome with newlywed friends Carl and Molly. As Dupree becomes a fixture in the Peterson's home, his outrageous antics in the bathroom and bedroom ensure that three becomes not just a crowd...but a full-blown, hilarious catastrophe!


Owen Wilson is Dupree, a freewheeling kind of guy that maintains an innocent view of the world but in the eyes of ordinary folks like us, Dupree is just a plain lazy bum or worse still, a good for nothing.

And when he lost his job and everything, his newly wed best friend, Carl (Matt Dillion) took him in despite his wife, Molly’s (Kate Hudson) hesitation and thus causing unnecessary chaos and intrusion in the household.

Unfortunately, the whole idea of having Dupree causing menace is only funny in the first 30 minutes or so. At this juncture, to prolong it to a full-length entertaining feature requires a certain skill which obviously the directors and screenwriters of this movie sorely lacks. As the story proceeds, the plot starts to turn into serious melodrama with the sudden focus on Carl’s relationship with his overprotective father-in-law played by Michael Douglas. It’s only towards the end when things start to lighten up and revert back to the comedy mode. Perhaps it’s a little too late, as the movie has clocked in to over 100 minutes.

What really keeps things together is the magnificent chemistry between Wilson and Hudson, Hudson and Dillion, Dillion and Wilson and Michael Douglas.

“You, Me and Dupree” works best if it’s a condensed 30 minutes comedy sketch. The directors’ successful background in television might shed some light on it. Or is it time for me to find my Linus-ness? (Want to know what I meant? Watch this!)


A barebone version not even a trailer. But linger on after the credits and you can see a certain famous cyclist in a cameo.


The audio recording is clear enough to hear Hudson's shriek, Dillion's low-tone and Wilson's trademark drawl and the visual is virtually spotless. Hudson's in a see-through lingerie is the best gauge how good this disc is. No complaints here.
