This week's reviewed movie is:
Dan in Real Life




Gene the Barber

Snick the Sidekick

Gordie the Barber


Dan in Real Life stars the hilarious and brilliant Steve Carell, with a very smart script, leading to a film that is one of the most fun and heartwarming releases of the year.

There's a few plot holes to nitpick at, but, honestly, you're going to have to let some go by and enjoy the whole film.

It's just packed with awkward humor, which I found really made me laugh a lot.

If you think getting through Thanksgiving with your relatives is tough, try getting through Dan in Real Life, a bland family reunion love triangle "comedy."

Steve Carell falls flat on his face trying to recreate the success of 40-Year-Old Virgin unsuccessfully.

It's as monotonous as it is both artificial and contrived.

Steve Carell plays a widower who falls for a woman who happens to be dating his brother in this romantic comedy.

The situation creates a good base for humor at his parents' home during the family weekend reunion.

The story is a heartfelt, moving comedy that is complex and gives a realistic look at their family relationships.

It's also about the mystery of falling in love.
