Dan in Real Life Reviews

Mike Scott

A charming, though occasionally off-target -- and consistently tempo-challenged -- romantic comedy.

The most cloying family meeting since A Very Brady Christmas

Una comedia romántica muy menor, predecible e intrascendente que desaprovecha por completo el talento de un buen elenco. Una lástima.

What's wrong with Steve Carrell? His is one of the quickest falls from comedy to crap since Chevy Chase.

I prefer a little more dysfunction in my dysfunctional family comedies.

Sacramento News & Review

Carell and Binoche are great fun to watch, doing just what the movie requires (not much, as scripted by Pierce Gardner and director Peter Hedges) and then some.

Watertown Daily Times

Carell seems to be at his best when he is put in awkward situations and is forced to make a fool out of himself, and there are plenty of those moments in Dan in Real Life.

July 23, 2008

Alas, [Hedges'] forays behind the camera with Pieces of April and now Dan in Real Life indicate he's got Sundance intentions but a Hallmark Channel soul.

Apollo Guide

Writer/ director Peter Hedges likes to touch on deeper emotional truths, but he doesn't have the courage to really probe his characters' struggles in a meaningful way.

Movie Views

Because it touches on the universal themes of loss and love so honestly, it is a film that feels authentic even in its many contrivances.

I wound up enjoying most of what I saw, despite its familiarity and predictability. The film's got a good heart.

Okay for forgiving romance fans, and a maybe-see for the rest of us.

The Scorecard Review

It attempts to take a Three's A Company situation and mix it together with a widower trying to raise three children. This is not cool.

Colorado Springs Gazette

Dan in Real Life is a film willing to admit that love is messy and that family, no matter how strained, is still the most perfect cauldron within which to ferment all those things that make life worth living...

It's hilarious and painful as only real situations can be, and Hedges directs his excellent cast, with sensitivity and wry humour.

It's hard for a film like this not to come off as too sweet, but this grown up comedy manages in making it a real gem.

Writer-director Peter Hedges ('Pieces of April') maintains a perfect balance between the comedy and the romance.
