Dan In Real Life


I heart this movie. I heart this movie with all my heart. I saw this in the theaters and thought it was the perfect combo of funny and sweet. Then we got it last week through our Netflix and I fell in love all over again...I've watched it 4 more times. I've probably watched the family talent show 7 or 8 times...love that part. So if you haven't seen this movie yet, please do. It's definitely chick-flick-y but B liked it as well. As far as my tastes go I'd take this kind of movie over any of the 27 Dresses, How to lose a guy in 10 days, even Pretty Woman chick flicks any day. And I thought the acting was spot on--even Dane Cook (!) was great. And if you've seen this tell me, didn't that look like the most fun family ever? Love it.

  5. Yes yes yes! That was an instant favorite the first time I saw it. We have been putting it in our shopping cart, then taking it out, then putting it back in at Target several times. We just need to hunker down and but it already. Brandon loves it too.

    I love that family. The talent show is so cute. I think I've found a real-life family like that in CJane & NieNie's family. You know, I'm a blog stalker like that.
