i wanted this to be funny, and it was. slightly. i don't think i laughed out loud, but i smiled a couple times. it just seemed really predictable and done. meh. maybe i've been with moster too long. the ennui that seethes through his system has also infected mine? are my standards too high? what was the last movie i found funny? i think it was "the other guys". that was a funny movie....
i liked the taxidermied mice in their intricate dioramas. i enjoyed the tower of dreams monologue/ presentation. i think that's the most positive thing i can say. oh, and i still like steve carell. he keeps doing me wrong, but i keep going back for more. why is that? because i really liked "dan in real life" i guess.
