The buzz has been “it’s not working” on this pic in recent weeks. Now Paramount, DreamWorks, and Spyglass have delayed Dinner For Schmucks originally scheduled for release on July 23 to July 30. UPDATE: An insider just told me the reasoning: “It looks like a much less competitive weekend. July 30 is Cats & Dogs 2 which is very young. Right now, July 16 and 23 are Inception, Sorcerer’s Apprentice, and Salt. July 30 used to be Meet The Fockers and Morning Glory which moved back to year end. This moved into that opening.”
