Film Preview: Dan in Real Life (2007)

Trailers (Due to age, may no longer be available)

Posters (Due to age, may no longer be available)

Poster Rating: B-

Review: From a marketing standpoint, a depressed Steve Carell can still sell the film, but the poster belies the comedic content of the trailer. This poster suggests an uproarious production. The trailer gives the idea of only minimal humor.

Trailer Rating: B

Review: I’m one of the few people who only like Carell when he dials things back. He’s part of a growing list of actors whose outwardly comic roles are downright irritating, but when given more dramatic material, they tend to step up to the plate and deliver. The subdued Carell in this preview may be the kind that I can stand watching.

Oscar Prospects:

No Oscar for Carell before Jim Carrey…maybe, but definitely not for this.
