A Fencer Checks out the movie “Dinner For Schmucks”

Had the chance to check out the premiere of Paul Rudd and Steve Carell’s new comedy “Dinner For Schmucks“. ย As per most Paul Rudd movies, there is a fencer in it! (See “Role Models” and “I Love You Man”)

This was a great flick! ย Really funny. ย  Worth checking out for sure!

Had the chance to chat with Paul a bit about the movie and fencing and while he has never “fenced” competitively he did do it as part of his acting training and he says he is a big fan of the sport!


In “I Love You, Man” Paul Rudd is a Fencer


In the new Paul Rudd movie I Love You Man he apparently is a member of a fencing club.

I’m bracing myself…(I’m also going to see it tomorrow!)

After Van Wilder 2 I’m still traumatized when they try to show fencingย “realistically”.ย (If you know what the Rath Bone is then you feel my pain!)

Still, Paul Rudd’s last movie Role Models also sort-of had sword fighting since the kid he was mentoring was involved in one of those real life wizards and knights fantasy battle things.ย (not sure of the name)

Does Paul Rudd have a fascination with fencing or just coincidence???
