Dupree finds himself jobless when he takes off to be best-man at Carl and Molly's wedding in Hawaii. Without a place to live, he goes to Carl and ask to stay a few days. He moves in and takes over creating chaos for the newly weds.
Comedy - This is a silly, lowbrow, sometimes raunchy comedy aimed at young
adults, primarily young males. Fans of Owen Wilson are likely not to
be disappointed; fans of Kate Hudson's lighter romantic comedy work
might be, though.
PROFANITY: 1 F-word, 5 S-words, 3 GD's, a few others. SEX/NUDITY: Non-sexual nudity; implied sex; masturbation; sex humor. VIOLENCE: Hits and chokes played for laughs. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol and tobacco. ACTION: One foot chase. COMEDY: Silly physical and verbal humor; some suggestive gags.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Average You, Me and Dupree is one of those mediocre, thow-away films that is destined to become lost in the mid-summer crush. There's nothing about this movie that makes it stand out from either a dramatic or a comedy perspective.
USA TodayFull Review Below Average You, Me and Dupree is a good idea badly executed...But the way the characters are portrayed and the clunky manner in which the sophomoric situations play out result in no one caring what happens to any of the three principals. This is cringe-inducing humor at its most wooden.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 205 moviegoers:Approximately three-quarters of all moviegoers rated "You, Me and Dupree" "Very Good" or higher, which means I can easily recommend this movie to everyone. However, there are a little to many "Good" opinions to say that "You, Me and Dupree" is a great movie. It's certainly, at the very least, a very good movie that everyone will enjoy, at least to some degree.
Carl and Molly have found the one unfortunate hitch in
their perfectly constructed newly wedded world: Dupree. A slacker with the soul of a
poet, Dupree just can't seem to catch a break from "The Man.” When he takes a week
off to be best-man at Carl and Molly's marriage in Hawaii, Dupree gets the unceremonious
heave-ho from his boss. Now jobless, car-less and evicted from the cot at his favorite
watering hole, he just needs to crash with the Petersons for a couple of days; okay, maybe
a month or so…
At first, Carl is psyched to have the couch guest while Molly bears the brunt of
Dupree's well-meaning antics. But, as Carl becomes buried in his grown-up job of land
development and headaches, he finds it hard to juggle Dupree and his newlywed
responsibilities. As time passes, his and Molly's houseguest uses his ample spare time to
become a great companion to her, underscoring Carl's new workaholic tendencies. Even
Molly's dad begins to fall for Dupree's carefree wisdom, frustrating Carl to no end.
Soon, everyone (but Carl) begins to root for Dupree to stick around. But just as
the impish buddy starts becoming a fixture in the Petersons' home, three becomes not just
a crowd…but a full-blown comic catastrophe. As the couple realizes their ideas of a
white-picket fence marriage are morphing, their loveable pal serves as a daily reminder
that finding your inner Dupree might just be one of life's hidden secrets.
