Three stars (PG-13)
Steve Carell, Juliette Binoche
Quirky romantic comedy. At a family gathering, Dan (Steve Carell), flustered advice columnist and widowed father, has an innocent flirtatious encounter with a charming woman (Juliette Binoche) at a bookstore, only to find out later she is the girlfriend of his brother. The sitcom storyline isn’t irritating because it’s a pleasure watching Carell and Binoche struggling not to fall in love with each other. The film works because the cast plays the comedy straight. 99 minutes. DVD INFO: Includes a commentary track, deleted scenes, outtakes and a pair of featurettes.
