Dan in Real Life (Comedy 2007)

It's nice to see Steve Carell in more films since I like him as an actor much more than, lets say, Will Ferrell. Bad thing is that this script was not very impressive although I did laugh a few times.

The movie was O.K. in most respects, but it wasn't anything special. You have this guy name Dan who is a widower raising 3 daughters. He meets a chick in a bookstore and is smitten. He then drives to a family reunion only to find out that this new flame is the girlfriend of his brother. Drama ensues.

The whole story is very predictable and very plain. Again, nothing really wrong with it, but it brought nothing new to the table. Maybe Steve will get another The 40 Year Old Virgin which will then put him back on the map.
