BoxOfficeProphets : Dinner for Schmucks will likely be viewed as another one of those comedies where Steve Carell turns in a goofball performance. That would be a fair statement, but not a wholly accurate one. Carell has made a name for himself playing socially inept characters, including his roles in The 40 Year-Old Virgin, Get Smart and most recently Despicable Me, in which he provided his voice to the insecure villain named Gru. But Carell’s performance in Schmucks shouldn’t just be written off as goofball. Sure, he plays a goofball, but he really acts here, and his skills make the movie worth seeing.
