GREENLIGHT #58: You, Me and Dupree (with "The Man Who Came to Dinner" and "What About Bob?")

Ann and Les feel very strongly about You, Me and Dupree (2006) and it isn’t a funny feeling. But only Ann gives it a red light because Les admits to a certain weakness for Kate Hudson though it’s only because she laughs exactly like her mother Goldie Hawn. Ann, on the other hand was not charmed for one second during this movie. Man did she loathe it. If she never sees Owen Wilson on screen again doing absolutely anything again, she might be happy. Meanwhile, both of them think Wilson and Matt Dillon are too old for these kind of parts (silly though they are) and Michael Douglas ought to be ashamed of himself wasting his talent in a movie like this.
For their GREENLIGHT Rentals, Les recommends one of the first and best “unwanted guest” movie called The Man Who Came to Dinner (1942.) Lots of people think this is Bette Davis'sfilm but Les and Ann both agree that it really belongs to Monty Woolley. Ann goes for a more contemporary and funny take on that same theme with What About Bob?(1991.) She thinks Bill Murray and Richard Dreyfuss do an excellent job playing off one another and allowing us to laugh ourselves silly along the way.
