Widower Dan Burns (Steve Carell) gives advice to parents about their teenagers. The only problem is he doesn't know the first thing about handling his own teenage daughters. A family vacation brings Dan head over heels in love with Marie (Juliette Binoche), a girl he meets at the book store. There's just one problem, Marie is Dan's brother's girlfriend. Over the weekend naturally everyone falls in love with Marie. The family is so happy Mitch has finally found a good woman. I really think you feel Dan's pain as he stands right next to Marie not being able to be with her. Look for my two favorite scenes, the stone skipping scene and clubbing with Dan & Mitch. I won't spoil this for you but I will say I got a little misty at the end. I wholeheartedly recommend Dan In Real Life.
