In Dinner for Schmucks, the remake of the 1998 French film The Dinner Game (Le Diner de Cons), Paul Rudd plays a rising executive who must bring the dumbest guest to his boss's 'Dinner for Idiots' in order get his promotion and the perks that go with it.
He finds Steve Carrell's nerdy 'Barry' and these mouse figurine props seem to be from his character's private collection, what he calls his 'mouse-terpieces'.
