This movie ended and my sister, Stephanie, turned to me and said, "You like this movie?" I LOVE this movie! I'll tell you why.
First off, this movie is refreshingly clean, (apart from one short conversation in the laundry room.)
Secondly, Steve Carell is, as I've mentioned before, awesome.
Third, this movie has a kind of easy-going, funny but not obnoxious, pleasantness about it that's very relaxing.
My mother has movies she likes and movies that are pleasant and enjoyable enough to fall asleep to over and over, night after night. I see Dan in Real Life as the utmost of pleasant and enjoyable films. Cute, funny, charming.
