Dan in Real Life
Steve Carell, Juliette Binoche, "Dan in Real Life"

Went to a screening of "Dan in Real Life," the new film with Steve Carell, and let the DVR do the work on "Dancing With the Stars." Result after the jump ...

Mark Cuban finally got his walking papers, with Jane Seymour the other one in the bottom two. Since we have no idea what the gap was between last and next to last, let alone how closely the other dancers were clustered, there's no way of knowing if this means trouble for Seymour -- or if she, too, was well ahead of Cuban.

"Dan in Real Life" has me pondering. It's not as thoroughly comedic as the trailers hint, with a lot of somberness to it. In a way, it reminds me of Woody Allen semi-romantic comedies like "Annie Hall" and "Manhattan," where the comedy floated over a good deal of bitterness and confusion, although I don't think it's as good as either of those films.

"Dan in Real Life" had some very good things, though, and "Let My Love Open the Door" is now stuck in my head. I have to write my review of this tomorrow, so I may have more to say after I've done it.

Haven't seen anything else tonight, so I'll be doing some catch-up tomorrow.
