Steve Carrell movies

So, I guess I've been on a Steve Carrell kick lately. I just watched "Get Smart" and then "Dan in Real Life" and absolutely LOVED both of them!

"Get Smart" was one of the funnist movies I've seen in a long time. I loved that Maxwell Smart wasn't some bumbling imbicile who unintentionally does a couple things right. He's acutally really smart and what he does wrong comes from his inexperience and also not wanting to get shown up by a girl. Lots of funny lines and I so enjoy watching Carrell more when I don't have to feel embarrassed for him (as much as I love "The Office" it's still difficult for me to watch sometimes)

"Dan in Real Life" is one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. I can't even begin to tell you how much I loved this movie. I'm always wary of something that's supposed to be the "feel-good movie of the year" or some crap like that, but this trancends such a trite phrase. First thing I loved, it's family-centered. His family are all good normal people and try to be nice to each other and support each other. I love that this is a romance of two middle-aged people. I love that the comedy is balanced by reality. I personally think the cover is really dumb looking, but not everything can be perfect. I'm sure everyone else has already seen this, but if not, DO!

I loved Dan in Real Life too! I haven't seen Get Smart yet. Steve Carrell cracks me up. He always seems so genuine in his humor-like he's not necessarily trying to be funny, but just is. If that makes sense??
