The story is a few lovable screw-up named Randy Dupree. After he attends his greatest buddy Carl’s wedding ceremony, he finds out that he’s fired for not appropriately asking for the time without work of labor. Dupree is homeless and carless when Carl presents to let him stick with him and his new spouse Molly for a number of days till he will get again on his ft. Molly reluctantly agrees, however she quickly discovers that Dupree is messy. She decides that he wants a girlfriend so she units him up with Mandy, somebody she works with. However when Molly and Carl return house after dinner they discover Dupree and Mandy collectively of their front room with candles burning. As Dupree comes out to clarify, one of many candles units the entrance of the home on hearth. Molly urges Carl to evict Dupree. He decides to maneuver in with Mandy. However, later that night time, Carl and Molly are driving house after they spot Dupree sitting on their own within the rain. Molly takes pity on him, however Carl needs to simply drive by. They take him again in with some new guidelines which Dupree agrees to. He refurbishes Molly and Carl’s front room. Carl asks Dupree to talk at profession day in Molly’s classroom as a result of her father, who can be Carl’s boss Mr. Thompson, ties him up at work. When he returns house that night time, Carl agrees to return house early the subsequent night time as Dupree and Molly are making an enormous dinner. However he would not arrive till later, when he spots them consuming collectively and thinks they’re having an affair. Dupree is as soon as once more thrown out of the home. The subsequent night time, Molly’s father comes over for dinner. They hear Dupree climbing on the drain pipe making an attempt to get the remainder of his issues. He falls and her father invitations him to hitch them, a lot to Carl’s dismay. Dupree and Mr. Thompson instantly hit it off, which enrages Carl. He leaps over the desk and assaults Dupree. He’s taken to the hospital whereas Carl walks out on Molly. The subsequent morning, Dupree arranges a neighborhood seek for Carl. When he goes to the bar to make a pit cease, he finds Carl there. Dupree encourages him to make issues proper with Molly and stand as much as Mr. Thompson.
One particular function of this movie that I discover somewhat curious is that the viewer by no means sees the face of Mandy, Dupree’s girlfriend. She seems in solely two scenes. In a single scene, we are able to see her leg simply earlier than Carl and Molly’s home is ready on hearth when she and Dupree are making love of their front room. Quickly after the fireplace, we are able to see Dupree speaking to her whereas she is in her automobile. Solely a wig and a nodding head are seen from the again on this scene. It seems that the concept is to have the viewers use their imaginations. The gag is sort of intelligent and sudden.
Clearly, because the title and trailer clearly point out, Dupree is essentially the most attention-grabbing character within the film. He’s a lovable however utterly aimless man who’s in search of his name from what he calls “The Mom Ship”. Randolph Dupree appears to all the time unintentionally mess issues up wherever he goes. Nevertheless it appears each time he does, he makes up for it. To start with of the movie when Dupree is in search of a job, he’s dipping rooster wings in milk and consuming them. This causes him to go to the lavatory quite a bit and, finally, plug up the bathroom. Later that night time, he’s pressured to make use of Molly and Carl’s lavatory as a substitute of the visitor one. Dupree leaves an disagreeable odor in there when he’s completed. However the subsequent morning, he makes up for it by making Carl and Molly a pleasant breakfast. A while later, he units hearth to their front room and, once more, makes amends by refurbishing the complete room himself. Because the story goes on, Dupree slowly begins to search out his true calling, which he continuously refers to as his “inner-ness”.
To wrap, should you suppose that You, Me and Dupree is simply one other “guest-who-won’t-leave” film, suppose once more! There’s a lot extra to this movie than the quilt might point out.
