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

When I first heard about this movie, I thought it sounded really promising so I was quite eager to check it out. Indeed, it is always intriguing when a US production hires a great actress like Juliette Binoche. Eventually she was, as usual, really good here and it was very nice to see her doing something else. I was also impressed by Emily Blunt who once again stole the show in a rather small part... read more

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.

Movies the giraffe watched in 2018: September (31 movies items)

"First viewing - Sept. 26th When I was looking into the film above, I saw that its director also made Dan in Real Life and realized I had basically forgotten about its existence and was curious to see what it's like. I definitely preferred it over Timothy Green, thanks largely to the chemistry between Carell and Binoche. As with most of these rom coms it doesn't take a genius to figure out what will happen, but the journey was mostly worthwhile. I didn't love it, but I enjoyed it and would watch"

"A rom-com that didn't make me feel sick. Steve Carell is the widower with three daughters who spends a weekend with his extended family. When out, he meets Juliette Binoche and they hit it off. What he doesn't know is that she is dating his brother. A film full of awkward moments but you like spending time with the characters and so the romance, which isn't forced, works. The mix of the two leads helped as you couldn't hate them even if you tried."
