Much better than the reviews I had read. I think this should have picked up an Oscar nomination for best screenplay. The only drawback was that there were too many story lines for the running time so one of them was a little hastily developed, but Emma Stone makes up for it by delivering one of the best lines of the year.
Watched this one the other night. I thought it would be good, but it way exceeded my expectations. It includes a very good performance by both Steve Carrell and Ryan Gosling.
Dan in Real Life is about a man with three daughters, whose wife has long since passed. He meets the woman of his dreams which ends up complicating things with his family. I watched the whole movie just wanting him and this woman to finally hook up. Steve Carell does a great job in a film that is more of a drama, though the funny bits are hilarious also.
