Dan in Real Life (2007) features Steve Carell in a relatively serious role, and he does it very well.
- Decent acting
- Excellent cinematography
- Plot is fairly predictable, although I didn’t find that this affected my enjoyment of the movie.
It’s a romantic comedy at its core, but it’s entertaining and interesting enough that guys can watch it without being embarrassed when their friends find out. Definitely worth a Netflix or iTunes rental.
