Dan In Real Life Movie Review
Advice columnist and widowed father of three Dan Burns (Steve Carell) has met someone new. Marie (Juliette Binoche) is beautiful, she's smart -- and she just so happens to be the girlfriend of Dan's brother Mitch (Dane Cook). With a publicly recognized moral compass, Dan finds himself torn between reaching for happiness and keeping the peace in his family. Dianne Wiest and John Mahoney co-star in this romantic comedy from director Peter Hedges.
Charming, adorable and funny are the three words I'm going to use to sum this movie up. I was expecting Dan In Real Life to be your typical romantic comedy. Some parts were funny but many parts were on a very serious note. I thought Steve Carell played a sweet and cute Dan. Though I was a little annoyed buy the way his family treated him. Some what unrealistic when it comes to family dynamics. Over all I liked the movie. I'm going to give it 3 1/2 stars out of a 5 star rating.
