Absolutely Charming and Poignant

Never heard of this film, and here in 2018 I came across it on a streaming service. I decided to give it a watch because of the cast - some of my favorites including Jeff Daniels, Ryan Reynolds and Lisa Kudrow. Emma Stone is quite special in her role as a young lady with so many cares in this world. Jeff Daniels is at his very disarming best, I think. I laughed out loud many a time, mostly with Captain Excellent (oh Ryan, you have such great comic timing). If you've ever felt a bit lost in life and wondered what now, I think you'll find kindred spirits in this lovely film.

Tediously dull

'Paper Man' is a bizarre and tediously dull movie that never even seems sure of what it's trying to achieve. Most of the film is nothing more than a generic friendship story. A middle-aged man going through something of a midlife crisis befriends a younger girl, who helps him get back on track. But the man also has an imaginary friend, 'Captain Excellent', who I guess was supposed to bring the humour to the film... with little success. One of the main problems with 'Paper Man' is that it's so slow that it almost feels like its going backwards. It really is boring, even for someone with the patience of a saint. You would have thought a character like 'Captain Excellent' would have made the movie more interesting, but no. He adds very little to a film that already doesn't have much going for it. Jeff Daniels and Emma Stone are probably the only positives to speak of. Both deliver good performances and share the odd decent scene. Ryan Reynolds on the other hand, the less said the better.

What were the marketing department doing?

Rule 1, never watch a trailer, I watched it AFTER watching the film and am seriously questioning the mental state of the head of marketing of this film. It is not a comedy, it is a character piece, a drama I guess, but NOT A COMEDY. It's good, I liked it, for me a 7/10 is a solid film, not bad, but not a a masterpiece. The strength comes from the amazingly good acting and writing. It makes you feel stuff, including awkward, which is good, because that is what movies are supposed to do. Don't be swayed, everything in this film is deliberate, if you felt it, the director wanted you to feel it, that is what good films do. As I said, acting and writing is superb, and it really comes together in the last act. Starts slow, but it's not boring, just hang on. I think Captain Excellent works, I don't really know why other people think it didn't, but I never mind breaking the immersion of reality in films. Good film, go watch if you like characters and stuff.
