In my opinion, Dane Cook lucked out here. Emily Blunt was all hot and bubbly here, while Juliette and Steve (Dan) were lame... No spark, no chemistry. Also, this family gave me diabetes. Who has a family like this? This is the only movie that could make john Mahoney and Dianne Wiest unlikeable. They're both very likeable, but here they were secret Nazis - all smiles and giggles - but underneath it's their way or the highway.

Great characters, acting and humor. Loved the music and this romantic comedy so much!

a more dramatic approach from Steve Carell than we're used to
part romance, part family drama he plays a writer named Dan who's very successful
but what is Dan really like in real life? his wife is dead, he has 3 daughters, and during a family getaway gets a peek into what he's missing
he later meets a woman played by Juliette Binoche but finds out she's dating his brother played by Dane Cook
it's a complicated romance he can't control next to his other daughter being in love at such a young age
we have to know that love isn't a feeling, it's an ability and the plan for life is to be surprised
great ensemble cast here
it feels way more straight-to-television but the scenery is relaxing, the people are very likeable, and the song choices match the scenarios in each scene
even a man like Dan can slowly start to unravel what he's missing out on in real life as opposed to his writing
exceptional work here

9/3/2017 (2): A pretty decent movie and much better than I expected, but really funny.

A charming love story. The film's funniest moments come in the little ironies and imperfections the story presents that later become the driving forces working to bring two people together.

One of my faves. The kind of film I've enjoyed watching a dozen times. Sod the naysayers. It's a tidy, romantic movie.

Increasingly awkward as it progresses, but entertaining. A memorable Steve Carell movie. (First viewing - Summer 2009)

Dan in Real Life is a delicately balanced comedy with a witty and reflective script, intimate performances, a New England folks-esque soundtrack, and truly original premise. Don't forget the special music for Ruthie Pigface. Such a good movie.

The relationships portrayed in this gem feel so sincere and accurate to those we find in our own lives. Watch it then watch it again.

Funny, charming and heartfelt, Dan In Real Life's sentimental value is heightened by a touching narrative and fine performances by Steve Carell and Juliette Binoche.
