Relating the story is rather pointless as it is a one-line joke (?). Dupree (Owen Wilson playing Owen Wilson) is the best man at his buddy Matt Dillon's wedding to Kate Hudson (the You and Me) and subsequently moves in with them, causing all manner of mayhem and bad taste and faux pas and grim situations (think toilet problems etc). And that is it. Michael Douglas was brought in to play a flat role as Kate Hudson's father who objects to her marriage blah blah blah. Ask directors Anthony and Joe Russo for the rest.
We know that Hudson, Dillon and Douglas have much better roles to offer (Wilson seems to have found his niche), and the only reason films like this keep getting made is because they make money (for some reason) at the box office. The film is silly, tacky, tired and should only be rented if the shelves in the video store are otherwise empty... Grady Harp, November 06
I asked my wife about a hour into this mess exactly what this movie was about and exactly what was happening...she couldn't really tell me. The only real reason to watch it to it's conclusion is to play a game called, 'I Want To See If I Can At Least Crack A Smile At ONE Moment'. It never happened.
Owen Wilson is a guy who has no drive or ambition in life. Matt Dillon and Kate Hudson get married and take Owen (Dupree) into their house because he loses his job and is kicked out of the bar he's been sleeping at. Dupree is a bad house guest who sets living rooms on fire and plays a little too much with the neighborhood kids. Dillon and Hudson are very annoyed (just like anyone in the audience with a attention span higher than a eight month old). so they kick him out. They take him back in and then they like him. Then Dillon and Hudson's marriage goes into the dumpster and....yeah. I don't really know what's going on...still. Honestly...WHAT IS GOING ON IN THIS FEATURE PRESENTATION???
This film is a complete and total mess. It is a rare treasure in that it has not one single redeeming quality to it. Not even Kate Hudson's cute face can offer any type of entertainment value.
I read a few of the reviews where the word 'hilarious' was used multipe times. This makes me frightened for humanity and for the moviegoing public, in general. Trust me on this one when I say that you really need to save your money. Do not buy this DVD.Read more ›
The story revolves around two college buddies. Matt Dillon, the responsible friend, has recently married Kate Hudson, gone to work for her dad (Michael Douglas), and is trying to make a place in the "grown-up" world. Owen Wilson plays the resident "Man-child," a buffoon who shirks responsibility and lives in a carefree (and hopeless) state. Conveniently, Wilson loses his place to live and so must move in with the newlyweds. Juxtaposing Wilson's antics with Hudson's stability is the comedic center of the film, and the two battle for the attentions of Dillon. Nothing new, huh? Wilson is an engaging performer, and talented, but we have seen him (and dozens of others) play this exact character time and time again. When did it become OK to continually represent 30-somethings as drifting losers? (I don't know anyone like this. Right out of college, sure--but 15 years later, not so much). But he is likable, and Hudson and Dillon are likable too. It's all so likable, if not riotously funny.
I actually found most of "Dupree" to be a pleasant, if extremely familiar, diversion. Having no ambitions whatsoever, the picture plays out as a genial poke at friendship and responsibility.Read more ›

Not the best of the Owen Wilson films : / kind of disappointed with this one. Glad it was only $4 so I don't feel like I blew a ton of money on a wasted item. Read morePublished 2 months ago by ThePinkPanda
Okay - get past the first 37 minutes (I kept fast forwarding early on) and the movie gets better and has some good guffaws. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Bob from VA
