Becky and I went to see Dan in Real Life yesterday at the AMC theaters in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. The Fandango website at Dan in Real Life describes the movie as follows:
“Dan Ashburn is a devoted single father and renowned advice columnist. When his entire extended family gets together for a reunion in a beach-front house, he unexpectedly meets Beth, the woman of his dreams. She is smart, funny, beautiful and she just happens to be his brother Lowell’s girlfriend. The man with all the answers finds that the hardest advice to take is his own.”
Dan in Real Life is a smart funny comedy starring Steve Carell that is totally far-fetched, but it has plenty of moments that make it fun to watch. It reminded me a little bit of Meet The Parents since so many parts of the film are ridiculous, but the story is fresh and different from totally stupid comedies like SuperBad and other comedies we’ve seen this year.
The critics are mixed on this film, but Becky and I both enjoyed it. The biggest problem that I had with the film was that so many of the funny parts of the movie were shown in the trailer for the flick. There were still plenty of laughs though to make it worth watching.
It’s a really quirky movie that is cute and a good date flick as a unique romantic comedy. Becky liked it more than I did, but we both thought it was worth the price of admission.
