Takes One To Know One.

Rising executive Tim Wagner works for a boss who hosts a monthly dinner in which the guest who brings the biggest buffoon gets a career-boost. Tim plans on not attending until he meets Barry, a man who builds dioramas using stuffed mice. Barry's blundering but good intentions send Tim's life into a downward spiral, threatening a major business deal and possibly scuttling Tim's engagement to his fiancee.

Dinner für Spinner

Tims Chef veranstaltet ein allwöchentliches Dinner für Spinner. Seine Angestellten sind angewiesen, den größten Spinner, den sie finden können, als Gast mitzubringen. Wer den schrägsten Vogel einlädt und so für Entertainment sorgt, genießt die größte Wertschätzung des Chefs. Tim bringt eines Abends Barry mit - und der hat das Potenzial, alle anderen in Sachen Idiotie zu übertreffen. Damit läuft er allerdings Gefahr, seine Verlobte zu erzürnen, die von der Idee alles andere als begeistert ist. Ein Festmahl für Komödienfans ist dieses US-Remake des gleichnamigen französischen Hits aus dem Jahr 1998.

The Dinner

The Dinner, c’est l’histoire de Tim, un homme auquel presque tout sourit. Seule une chose lui manque pour faire de sa carrière un plein succès : trouver l’invité idéal au dîner annuel organisé par son patron, événement à l’issue duquel celui qui présentera l’invité le plus excentrique à son hôte sera désigné comme le grand gagnant de la soirée. C’est alors qu’il rencontre Barry, un type qui réalise des reproductions d’œuvres d’art avec des souris...

A cena con un cretino

Tim Conrad è un analista in ascesa all'interno di un'importante compagnia. Finisce, grazie a una sua proposta, al centro delle attenzioni del suo CEO Lance Fender il quale lo invita ad entrare a far parte di un cerchio ristretto: Si tratta di un gruppo ad alto livello che si diverte ad invitare periodicamente a cena degli individui ritenuti dei perfetti idioti e il vincitore sarà chi avrà presentato il più 'cretino' di tutti. Tim incontra accidentalmente un soggetto che potrebbe fare proprio al caso suo. Si tratta di Barry, esperto in tassidermia che ha come hobby quello di ricreare dei quadretti ispirati spesso ad opere d'arte utilizzando topolini mummificati. Nulla di orrorifico ma sicuramente qualcosa di molto, molto poco comune. Barry entrerà così nella vita di Tim scombinandola senza volerlo.
