Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - This is a light comedy-drama aimed at adults though it's fairly clean in content for whole families (though kids would likely not be interested). This is a big treat for Steve Carell fans though Dane Cook fans may be disappointed by his small role.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average It's tough to actively dislike something this bland and inconsequential. It's just another throw-away movie that only merits a review because it features someone as prominent as Carrell. It's doubtful that even the most stalwart defenders of formulaic romantic comedies will be able to mount much of a campaign in favor of this one.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good 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.

USA Today Full Review
Average Though occasionally winning, Carell seems as if he's shrugging and smiling his way through. Undoubtedly, the clever comic actor has deep reserves of dramatic talent as he showed in Little Miss Sunshine. While an improvement over Evan Almighty, Dan is not a movie that taps his previously unseen abilities.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Carell is about to discover a family weekend of chaos, confusion, awkwardness—and ultimately, his entire family's extraordinary capacity for love in the face of left-field surprises. It all begins with widowed father and family-advice columnist Dan Burns (Carell), who is still reeling from the heartache of loss and takes refuge by trying to maintain order with his three rebellious young girls, while dodging anything unexpected or outside the box. But when Dan heads to Rhode Island, his miffed daughters in tow, for the annual fall weekend thrown by the large and boisterous Burns family, everything changes. Soon after his arrival, he runs into an alluring woman named Marie (Binoche) in a bookshop. For the first time in a very, very long time, Dan experiences real, live sparks—only to have to douse them liberally when he discovers Marie is, in fact, the brand-new girlfriend his brother Mitch (Cook) is about to proudly introduce to the family.

As the weekend gets underway in the close quarters of a crowded house filled with quirky, prying relatives, Dan and Marie try to squelch and cover up their growing mutual attraction at every turn, leading to one comical situation after another. Yet, no matter how hard they try to do the very opposite, Dan and Marie can't help but fall in love. Now Dan is about to realize that no matter how wise safety might seem, when it comes to real life, he's going to have to break all the rules.
