Wasn’t Expecting What I Saw
Steve Carell once again stars in a light romantic movie about choices, family and pressure. By judging on the plot and cover art of the movie I was expecting a flat-out comedy, lots of laughs and unrealistic elements, but I guess I was wrong. Sure the movie had some comedy, but it felt much more of a light Drama to me and Steve Carell once again gave a great performance. The movie itself really tackles true observations and that was a strong element I found. But, the ending felt a little bit rushed and predictable. Through-out, the cinematography was great, the acting was great and the message it delivered was obvious but yet still very important. Though, it came down to old, flat and predictable ending. I’d reckon if different choices were made at the end of the movie (perhaps for the bad, even) this movie would get better publicity. Still a fun movie.
Steve Carell’s Best Performance To Date
Having never been especially impressed by Steve Carell as a lead actor, I approached “Dan In Real Life” somewhat cautiously, and found myself very taken by it. Carell put on a wonderful performance as Dan Burns, a newspaper advice columnist, who, in spite of the fact that he provides advice to parents and their kids, finds his own family life falling apart. Widowed for four years, he has become overprotective to his three daughters (who nevertheless struck me – especially the eldest – as unnecessarily snotty) and has almost ruined his relationship with them as a result. Unable to move on in life he has to attend an annual family reunion, and encounters Marie (Juliette Binoche) by chance in a local bookstore. They are immediately attracted to each other and spend the day together. Then, in an ironic twist of fate, Dan discovers that Marie is actually his brother’s new love interest, and will be spending the weekend with the family. The two have to fight their feelings for each other and hide them from the rest of the family.
What I really liked about this movie was the sadness of the character Carell played. He was immediately a character you could feel empathy for; one whose life is a tragedy plastered across the screen. The only role I can think of that came close to this one might have been his turn in “Little Miss Sunshine,” but I just didn’t care for that movie for a variety of reasons. Here, pretty much everything worked together, with Carell’s performance the highlight. Binoche was also very believable as she struggles to keep everything together in this insane situation she’s found herself in. Some would call this a “dramedy.” I suppose it qualifies for that moniker, although I found more drama here than comedy (although some scenes are rather funny) – and I appreciated the dramatic emphasis. I had mixed feelings about the apparently requisite happy ending. It was nice to see Dan move on and re-enter “real life” with the woman he loves, although there was something about his lostness that really connected and, in a sort of bizarre way, it was almost a shame to see that disappear. That’s a relatively minor point, though, and the happy ending was probably inevitable anyway. This is a very good movie however you look at it. 8/10
