Dan in Fake Life

Dan in Real Life is a study in discomfort. In a movie filled with in-your-face metaphors and too-clever script contrivances, my main beef is the lengths to which this film goes to perpetuate an unrealistic and horribly tense family situation. Sure, there’s decent acting, some good camera work, some touching family moments…but it’s all over shadowed by the overwrought slow-motion train wreck that you can see from an hour away.

Two out of five.
