Dan in Real Life

Something's happening to Dan. It's confusing. It's awkward. It's family.


Dan in Real Life
Steve Carrell is back in another rom-com, where he is once again out of his depth. For the past four years, he's been raising his three daughters alone, after his wife died. This thanksgiving, the family is gathering at his parents' place. He happens to meet a woman in a bookstore, and they get along fabulously. As the family gathers together, his brother arrives, with the woman from the bookshop, who is his girlfriend. However the passions cannot be denied, and soon they two of them are sneaking around having clandestine meetings, while trying not to arouse suspicions.

Catherine Chambers quote iconteve Carell swaps virginity for family values in this charming, sharp-witted rom com that never has to try too hard for laughs.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconBeneath its aw-shucks, wants-to-be-liked exterior, this is a bankrupt motion picture. It's cloying, artificial, and not the least bit romantic. In its 100 minutes of screen time, it gets only one thing right: that teenage girls will always hate their father, regardless of the provocation.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconThe plot tickles sitcom, but the film is a winner because Carell and Binoche follow Hedges' lead and keep it real. Sharing their company really is a pleasure.

ScreenIt
quote iconDon't plan on being surprised, and don't worry if you have to wait until this offering arrives on video or TV before you see it.
