A comedy centered around four couples who settle into a tropical-island resort for a vacation. While one of the couples is there to work on the marriage, the others fail to realize that participation in the resort's therapy sessions is not optional.
Two salesmen whose careers have been torpedoed by the digital age find their way into a coveted internship at Google, where they must compete with a group of young, tech-savvy geniuses for a shot at employment.
For newlyweds Carl and Molly Peterson, life can't get any sweeter as they begin anew to settle down into married life. With a nice house and established careers in tow, nothing seems to get in their way. However, Carl is about find out just how much friendship means when Dupree, his best friend has been displaced from his home and fired from his job because of attending their wedding. Taking his friend in, what Carl and Molly are about to experience is that the fine line between a few days and whatever else is after, can be a lot more than they bargained for. Especially when their friend overstays his welcome in far too many ways than he should. Written by
Lance Armstrong: who is Dupree's inspiration, makes three cameos in the movie. First, he is seen in the biking video, to which Dupree exercises (despite appearances, this is not stock footage, but filmed specifically for this movie). Second, he appears in the dream sequence, where Carl imagines Dupree and Molly on Bob's boat (Armstrong is wearing Dupree's "Say Hello to my little friend" gnome shirt). Finally, in a brief after-the-credits scene, he is shown reading Dupree's book, in exactly the same way that Dupree was seen earlier reading Armstrong's book. See more »
When Dupree is going back towards the house to save his never-seen-lady-friend, he raises both hands, then is shown with his hands down again without time to have done so. See more »
You've done everything you can to undermine me. You've tried to intimidate me. You've tried to humiliate me. You've bastardized my project to the point where it's unrecognizable. But here's the thing, Bob. I don't care. I don't care about this job, and I don't care about you. I care about Molly! She means everything in the world to me. And if you're going to stand in the way of me trying to win her back, you'd better bring a pretty big candlestick.

(Spoiler) At the end of the credits, Lance Armstrong is shown reading Dupree's book and wondering aloud how to pronounce his "ness" name. See more »
Last night a friend coaxed me into seeing "You, Me and Dupree." Even
though I have liked all four of its principal actors for years, I
hadn't planned on seeing it last night or possibly ever. The reviews
have been uniformly terrible, so I was expecting the worst. I sat in a
movie theater that was perhaps one-third full, and I was waiting for
the boredom to set in, which the critics said was comingin spades.
Yes, Owen Wilson has bleached-blond locks, again, but that is probably
the only accurate comment in any of the reviews that I saw, and I must
have read at least ten of them, from various parts of the country. He
was very good, as he was in the "Wedding Crashers." Kate Hudson was
perky as always, and did a splendid job; and anyone who has loved her
mother over the years will find Goldie's "clone" just as lovely as
Matt Dillon did a terrific job, and was totally believable comically;
and Michael Douglas was very good too, playing his character with
aplomb. In short, it was a very funny movie, and quite refreshing given
the alternatives; namely, movies that are loaded to the gills with
special effects, which jar one's cranium to the uttermost.
It seems like the critics were in lock step in panning this film, which
may be driving away audiences unfairly. Indeed, this may be a perfect
example of the critics being wrong, dead wrong. Go see it in a theater,
or buy a DVD when it comes out, and my guess is that you will not be
disappointed one iotaand may actually love it. All four principal
actors are perfectly balanced, and they are strong enough to be
wonderful foils to one another.
