Dan in Real Life - 2.5 stars

It took me a couple of days to even come up with a star rating for this movie. The movie made me angry sometimes, and interested me others; and by many definitions that makes it a good movie, but by others that makes me unhappy to have seen it. But even so, it's not even that easy to talk about it, or to write about it...

Some points:

  • Steve Carell did do a very good job.
  • The family seemed realistic.
  • It was a romantic comedy, but not anywhere near as bad as I was expecting.
  • It was part of the sub-category of romantic comedies where the protagonist is repeatedly humiliated. I found this painful.
  • The art was rather good too.

I still don't know, though...

** 1/2
