Dan in Real Life Movie Review by Joe (7/19/2011)

Dan Burns falls short of being a father, a son, and a romantic. His parents and relatives prefer his brother (Dane Cook) over him, his children treat him like garbage, and the woman he begins to like is going out with his brother. His life sucks. But the movie, the movie does not.
Peter Hedges created this wonderfully...

Dan in Real Life Movie Review by Zara (10/27/2007)

I should point out right away that Peter Hedges wrote the script for WHAT'S EATING GILBERT GRAPE, as well as was the writer and director for PIECES OF APRIL. And the man is consistent. If you were a fan of either of those other two movies, you're guaranteed to love this one. While it might seem stale for a writer/director...
