Sleepy Saturday Movie Review: Dan In Real Life

          On this lazy Saturday I decided to watch Dan In Real Life that just arrived through Netflix. I went into this film without much prior knowledge as to what it's about, however, starring Steve Carrell and Dane Cook I assumed it would be hilarious. Boy, was I wrong.

         So the movie as about Dan, played by Steve Carrell, whose wife passed away a few years ago. During a family retreat he falls in love with this lady he meets at a bookstore. It turns out that she is dating his brother Mitch, played by Dane Cook, and it all goes downhill from there.

         There are a few smirk moments in this movie, however, it's mostly filled with super awkward situations and sad moments. I'm glad I got it through Netflix instead of spending 4-5$ on this at the nearest Video Store. I wouldn't recommend this unless you're trying to show you have a soft caring side for one of your dates.

          Overall I give it a 4/10.
