It's actually dinner for employees who try to impress the boss ( Bruce Greenwood) in "Meet the Parents" director Jay Roach's amusing Americanization of the French comedy "The Dinner Game." Paul Rudd plays one of those workers, who tries to meet the challenge of bringing the most ill-suited person as his guest.
He finds a candidate in an IRS man ( Steve Carell) who has a bizarre hobby, to put it mildly. Zach Galifianakis ("The Hangover"), Jemaine Clement ("Flight of the Conchords") and Jeff Dunham are among the co-stars. DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; deleted scenes; outtakes. *** (PG-13: AS, N, P) (Also on Blu-ray)Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
