Online Sportsbooks Offer Odds On “Dinner for Schmucks”

July 30th, 2010 – Written By Bonnie

There could not be a more appropriate name for the fun comedy being released this weekend, Dinner for Schmucks. The previews alone are sure to draw in quite a large viewing audience who want to experience the full length version of this film. With a cast of funny men including Paul Rudd, Steve Carrell, Zach Galifianakis, and Ron Livingston, the film is bound to be out right funny, or just so ridiculous it is funny. Most are going to go with just down right funny.

This film is about a guy by the name of Tim, played by Rudd, who is forced to attend his bosses’ monthly dinner party and bring a guest that can be made fun of throughout the course of the event. Tim thinks that he has the perfect guest, IRS employee Barry, who is played by Steve Carrell. The object of the game is to be the executive who shows up with the biggest “idiot,” which in return will receive certain advantages.

Despite the cast and the story line behind the film, Rotten Tomatoes reports that the film is only receiving 48% positive reviews, which is based on a total number of 78 reviews. Anyone who is a fan of funny man Carrell may fork out the hefty price tag of a theater ticket simply to see for themselves if he brings a bit of the comedy he displayed in films such as The 40 Year Old Virgin.

Online sportsbooks have issued betting types on just how well the films ticket sales will do this opening weekend. Entertainment betting lines list the amount of sales the film will bring in from Friday July 30th, until Sunday August 1st.

Total Opening 3-Day Weekend Box Office: Friday 30th July to Sunday 1st August

USD 22.5 Million to USD 27.5 Million     +150
USD 17.5 Million to USD 22.5 Million     +175
