[[TheThingThatWouldNotLeave Almost immediately, Dupree is annoying the hell out of them both]].

Added DiffLines:

* {{Deconstruction}}: While it's broadly sympathetic to him, as Roger Ebert noted in his review the movie nevertheless points out that, despite their popularity as movie comedy characters, goofy, immature and self-centred ManChild party boys like Dupree who keep finding ways to cause WackyFratboyHijinks and become TheThingThatWouldNotLeave become pretty insufferable pretty quickly if you have to put up with them on a regular basis in real life. At one point, Dupree complains about how everyone only sees him as the loveable fuck-up, only for Carl to angrily shoot back "I got news for you: you're not ''that'' loveable."
