Strangely, having just gotten out of an opening weekend screening of Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot, we didn’t really recall much of Theodore Shapiro’s score while in the grips of watching the very funny movie. However, when we got back home and listened to the score on its own, we were instantly transported back into the film.

Win a Dinner For Schmucks soundtrack

PrintSorry about the lack of new stuff lately. It’s wedding season amongst our friends, and Thing 1 and Thing 2 have birthdays two weeks apart, meaning the Nuthouse’s weekends are booked all through July. We’ve also been sick, meaning productivity is way down.

As a way of making up, we’ve got another soundtrack giveaway for you all, once again courtesy of Lakeshore Records. We’ve got two copies of the Dinner For Schmucks soundtrack, which has a Theodore Shapiro score, as well as a new song from the wonderful Sondre Lerche entitled “Dear Laughing Doubters.”

I’m not usually down with seeing comedies in the theater, but man…this has Steve Carell and Paul Rudd, as well as the amazing comedy talents of Zach Galifianakis, Jemaine Clement, and Kristen Schaal. Those latter three in one film are enough to sell me on it, and help me ignore the fact that I saw Jeff Dunham in the trailer, as well.

Send an e-mail to nicholas dot spacek at gmail dot com with the subject line “Dinner For Schmucks” by Friday at 5pm Central, and we’ll announce the winners next Monday.
