Rotten: Why must so many family-friendly romantic comedies give us such wan, forgettable dialogue and predictable situations? Dan is derivative at best, and feels like filmmaking by focus group at worst.

Fresh: Carell's] uncanny ability to make us care what happens to him salvages Dan in Real Life.

I enjoy Steve Carell's movie and that's why I watched this with high hope thinking this would make my day like the others have. But this didn't reach my expectation. This was painfully boring. I don't know what was lacking. Maybe the story didn't have any freshness. I did felt bad for Steve for having such a bad luck everyday. Everyone's performance was great. It looked realistic. But yeah, the rating seems to be pretty deceiving for me.

This is a lovely touching and fun film. The story is just a regular love story with the usual type of probs. Carell is great in this and really comes through as the average man with everyday probs, mainly his loneliness and kids. The acting is good all round and the location is realistic. It is predictable but very sweet, a feel good flick.
