Great RomCom, but predicable as hell

For starters, Steve Carell is the only reason I watched this film, and its the perfect role in which he excels at - as a lovable down-on-his-luck good guy with great punch lines.

Not being a fan of romantic comedies (i'm a guy, after all), I still found myself somewhat impressed with this one, and even fought back tears in one scene (when Steve was telling his three daughters which ... read more

Love Steve Carell. Dane Cook continues to prove that the leap from standup to the silver screen is not working. Overall, it was good, but extremely awkward situations made me squirm in my theater seat. I definitely could have waited till video.

A missed oportunity

Juliette Binoche was, as usual, great and it was very nice to see her doing something else. Steve Carell was allright but not amazing. They try to mix Comedy and Drama and, sometimes, it works and sometimes, it just doesn't. To conlude, it is a flawed movie but it is still definitely worth a look.

"Filmes que me surpreendem. Boa ideia pra uma futura lista. O que eu pensei quando vi o nome do filme, o ator principal e o poster? Comédia baboseira do Steve Carell. Apesar de que, dos atores de comédia baboseira, ele é um dos meus favoritos. Mas eu encontrei um filme mais dramático do que cômico. E o Steve Carell é um ótimo ator. Um personagem complexo, numa história, que apesar de um final clichê, teve vários momentos não-clichê ao longo do filme. E como não se apaixonar pelo Dan?"

"On second thought-- I will add one more thing to the list. It's something that I haven't seen yet.... and I hope that the symbolism of that doesn't become too bitter. It certainly doesn't seem to be as popular as his others-- if the television is an indication-- and I personally think that it's damn weird that the most popular movie that he's been in-- according to listal.... "according to Hoyle"-- is *still* "Bruce Almighty", which was made in *2003*.... I mean, really, guys? Really? And star"

" Check out my review: http://www.listal.com/viewentry/3842651 Granted, it was quite weak in spots, quite cliche, and has that "happily-ever-after" ending, but you can't deny how sweet and likable the whole setup was. Steve Carrell plays Dan, a nice but love-repressed widower who plays the role of a Spartan-dad to his three daughters. His words, his actions may seem offish and villainous, but they're not; they're full of care, affection and, on a smaller scale, fear. The film, like I said, is "

“Dan in Real Life is perhaps a very good example on how films can be funny, likable and sweet without defacing it with off-color humour, tasteless jokes & just plain stupidity. In an age of the latter points, this film was a very welcome surprise. I still can't get over the fact how unpretentious the film was - as was the script. Nothing too extraordinary, but nothing too subtle either. Granted, it was quite weak in spots, quite cliche, and has that "happily-ever-after" ending, but you can't deny how sweet and likable the whole setup was.

Still even more favorite quotes, from a film (253 movies items)

"Dan Burns: Instead of telling our young people to plan ahead, we should tell them to plan to be surprised. Dan Burns: You know that feeling in your heart? When your heart is just pounding, like it's actually outside your ribs. Exposed, vulnerable, but wonderful and awful, and heartsick, and alive, all at the same time? "
