Dan in Real Life (2007)

Comedy, Drama, Romance |.

Dan in Real Life is a American comedy-drama film directed by Peter Hedges, and stars Steve Carell, Alison Pill, Juliette Binoche, Dianne Wiest, John Mahoney and Dane Cook.

Dan Burns is a newspaper advice columnist, a widower, and single-parent to his three girls, living in Northern New Jersey. The family takes a trip to the rambling, Rhode Island home of his parents for an annual family gathering. Also in attendance are Dan’s brother and sister with their families, along with Dan’s younger brother Mitch, who is known for his carefree bachelor ways.

The morning after their arrival, Dan meets Marie in a bookshop. They share a muffin and a heart-felt chat, although Marie gently warns Dan that she has a boyfriend. Dan returns to his parents’ house and announces that he has “met someone”. Brother Mitch introduces his new girlfriend, who turns out to be Dan’s Marie. Dan is disheartened and resists his father’s relationship advice about finding someone of his own.

Dan reluctantly agrees to a double date with their once unattractive childhood friend, “pig-faced” Ruthie. Marie jealously watches Dan and Ruthie. The next morning, Dan endures her ‘punishment’ for his late night with Ruthie by eating the burnt pancakes which she serves him. Tension grows between Dan and Marie, culminating at the family talent show.
