Dan in Real Life Synopsis


Love strikes in the worst-possible circumstances for widower, single dad and popular family advice columnist Dan Burns (CARELL) when he falls for a beautiful stranger (BINOCHE) in a bookshop – only to discover she’s the very same woman his charismatic brother (COOK) is about to introduce as his incredible new girlfriend at their parents’ annual get-together. As the weekend gets under way, Dan and Marie scramble to hide their mutual attraction to each other, resulting in a series of hilariously awkward situations. Yet, even under those circumstances, they can’t help falling in love. Now, Dan is about to realize that -- no matter how many good suggestions he might have for other people -- when it comes to romance and family, the hardest advice for a man to follow is his own.



While Steve Carell is hilarious, his new movie is apparently, not. The trailers for the film make it look like Carell’s first obvious Oscar bid. He might as well be playing a retarded kid.

Dan in Real Life’s advertising is a cliché monstrosity, a bunch of awful feel good about the complications of life garbage using that standard, cliché “oh isn’t life beautiful” music that every movie like this uses. After Evan Almighty Carell could really use a career recharge, and this really doesn’t look like it will be it.

I love you Steve, but if you need me I’ll be on the sidelines waiting for Get Smart.
