My Opinion of Lars and the Real Girl
Katelyn brought Lars and the Real Girl over a few weeks ago and asked Don and I to watch it. We finally got a chance to put it in the DVD player on Labor Day and we loved the movie!
If you haven't seen Lars and the Real Girl, you should put it on your "to do" list. The movie is about a delusional guy named Lars who orders a life-size doll online and is convinced that it is his girlfriend. Lars' brother and sister-in-law, who are very concerned, are told by a medical professional that the best thing they can do for Lars is to go along with it. I won't tell you any more about the story other than the movie is PG-13 and nothing inappropriate is done with the doll.
If you have someone in your family or circle of friends with a disability, you should absolutely watch this movie. You'll laugh and laugh and maybe even cry at the end (I did.).
Ryan Gosling is not my most favorite actor, but he did such a good job with this character. Soooo...borrow or buy the movie, set aside 107 minutes, pop up some corn and enjoy watching Lars and the Real Girl.
