Dan in Real Life

I know this movie is a little bit older, it was done in 2007, but with the movie, Crazy Stupid Love in the theatres and coming out soon on DVD – I thought I would plug another movie by Steve Carell that you might have overlooked.  Dan in Real Life was one of those movies that I was expecting one thing – didn’t like it after watching it – but yet watched it over and over and I found the charm and the humor in it and now it is one of my favorite movies!  Steve Carell, from the television show, The Office, plays Dan, a single father raising three high-spirited girls.  It is time for the yearly family reunion and as they embark to visit the family – they all get more than what they bargained for.  Dane Cook plays Steve’s brother with a new girlfriend.  A girlfriend that Dan met at the coffee store and made a connection with unbeknownst to him, that it was his brother’s girlfriend.  It’s a story of love lost, love found, innocent love, and a family that will drive you crazy and still have your back at the end of the day.  It is filled with humor, life’s crazy lessons, and a message that you are pretty lucky if you have family above all else that loves you no matter what!  If you’re looking for a film to pass the afternoon – check this one out and give it try.  It just might strike your funny bone and give you a reason to smile.
