If there is one thing that we can take away from director Lynn Shelton’s awkward sex comedy Humpday, it is that there is nothing more uncomfortable to watch yet strikingly hilarious than two straight men who set out to have sex on camera.

Dan in Real Life

The movie is half-understated, intimate comedy, while the other half tends to veer into screwball comedy territory. There’s no excuse for Peter Hedges to take a story that should be a character study of what it’s like for a middle-aged man raising three daughters on his own and film it like Meet the Parents mixed with Wedding Crashers.

There’s a threat facing America, and the world at large. It’s not as high profile as other issues. You don’t see it talked about on the news like you do the Iraq war. You don’t hear the President address it like he does global terrorism. You don’t hear the CDC put out any alerts about it.

Dane Cook is really trying for us. He is attempting to tone down the act and get into some movies where he may eventually become critically acclaimed. Sorry Dane, but I just don’t see this one panning out for you. His latest attempt teams him up with Steve Carrell in DAN IN REAL LIFE. Apple.com has just released the first trailer this afternoon.
