San Francisco Chronicle - Mick LaSalle
Dan in Real Life fires on so many circuits that at times it's actually shocking how good it is.
Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman
A nimble and supple and moving comedy.
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers
Carell shows a whole new side to his talents.
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
If the film has a flaw, and I'm afraid it does, it's the Sondre Lerche songs on the soundtrack. They are too foregrounded and literal, either commenting on the action or expounding on associated topics. In such a laid-back movie, they're in our face.

Dan in Real Life (2007)
