2.0 out of 5 stars Paper-thin 17 Aug 2010
By J. Morris TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
Paper Man sits firmly in the alternative genre alongside other Omega-male films like Greenberg & Meet Bill. Richard (Jeff Daniels) is a writer who moves to Montauk, Long Island with his wife Claire (Lisa Kudrow - Friends) to try and write his second novel. Richard is far from an ordinary guy; he obsesses about the insignificant, is distracted by the minor and fascinated by the irrelevant. His compulsions are costing him his sanity and more importantly, his marriage. When a chance meeting with a local teenager Abby (Emma Stone) sparks a friendship that revitalises Richard he begins to realise that maybe life has more to offer, that there are others out there in the same position and he should stop being so inwardly-focused, meaning he might have to give up his imaginary friend - Captain Excellent (a muscled, bleach-blonde & lycra-clad Ryan Reynolds) to move on in life.

This film just doesn't know where to go, it starts rather abruptly as we are plunged into Richard's dysfunctional world with little explanation as to why a superhero is metaphorically whispering in his ear. At first this is charming as you try and give the hapless Richard the benefit of the doubt, bearing with it as you try to piece together the information you are drip-fed. About an hour in, this charm has really worn thin as you realise that there just is no story-arc, no explanation coming and this listless pace is all you are going to get.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best films I've ever seen! 22 Dec 2010
By ReelBigMike - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Paper Man is quite simply a fantastic movie. I haven't been this emotionally affected by a film since Gran Torino. Emma Stone and Jeff Daniels' characters compliment each other perfectly. One has seemingly never grown up, while the other has been deprived of their childhood. The way that they form such a truly unique friendship and help each other to find out what's missing inside of them, keeping them from moving on with their respective lives, is amazing to watch unfold. These two characters seem very different at first, but you eventually come to find that they rely on the same type of crutch to help them function, albeit not all that well, in normal society. The movie also certainly doesn't take it self too seriously, with just enough moments of levity to keep the story grounded. The movie is a winner from beginning to end and I can attest to the fact that Paper Man stays great through multiple viewings; with it's top-notch acting and unbelievably gripping ending. The ending is one of the most poignant and moving cinematic experiences I've ever had.

Bottom Line: This is the epitome of a 5/5 movie. Buy the DVD/Blu-Ray, watch it, love it, and spread the word to friends and family about this awesome indie film!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Movie! 4 Aug 2010
By Post Leslie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I saw this movie at its premiere at the LA Film Festival and I loved it! It is quirky-funny, poignant and melancholy by turns -- exactly what I want in a film for grownups. The performances are stellar and the story highly original.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 24 Dec 2010
By Zeke Farrow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
What an inventive feature debut for this killer directing duo. Paper Man successfully manages to mix big concept with the feel of an intimate character driven film. A fun, inventive, drama told through a comic frame. Great performances from the whole star-studded cast. A well- observed, tightly knit spiral into a troubled man's psyche, the film takes off fast and doesn't stop until its surprising and tense conclusion. It's refreshing to see indie-style filmmaking coming from such an accomplished cast and crew. Thumbs up for an original and moving soundtrack. Thumbs up for unique concept. Thumbs up for a great, creative partnership from its creators. Netflix it. Amazon it. Enjoy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Layers Of Subtlety 20 Feb 2013
By bat100 - Published on Amazon.com
This movie made me think on many different levels. The first time I saw it I wasn't sure I liked it, but it got in my head and I started to relate many of the scenes in the movie to life. So, I watched it again and determined it was much better then I originally thought. Richard (Jeff Daniels) makes his first real friend at almost age 50. And Emma Stone (an actress I wasn't terribly crazy about until I saw this film) makes her first real friend when she's 16. Up until then they've both been doing the best they could not knowing really how to cope with the ravages of life except through slightly delusional and weak self affirmative behaviors. After they meet, they are stronger individuals recognizing they don't need to be what the rest of the world is claiming they need to be or even necessarily and more importantly what they thought they needed to be and they'll be OK.

5.0 out of 5 stars A writer with writers block befriends a high schooler with problems of her own. WATCH THIS MOVIE!! I give it my first A+!! 18 Jan 2011
By Tony Heck - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
A writer (Daniels) trying to start his second book and find himself meets a local high schooler (Stone) and a friendship is born. Richard (Daniels) has always been different, for one he's in his 40's and has an imaginary friend (Ryan Reynolds). His wife (Lisa Kudrow) drops him off at a house alone in hopes he will finally start his book. Not feeling inspired Richard rides to town and meets Abby (Stone). The mis-matched pair become fast friends and discover more about themselves in the process. I can not say enough good things about this movie. Emma Stone stole this movie, her acting was great and I expect to see awards in her future if she keeps this up. This movie has it all, great humor, writing, acting and is also very moving. Almost instantly you feel sorry for Richard and you really root for him the rest of the movie. Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds really make you feel for them and you are right there with them trying to give Richard the push he needs. The ending is unexpectedly touching and I actually got a little choked up. I honestly could go on all day about how much I liked this movie, it's just a shame movies like this one (where the plot and acting take center stage) don't get the audience they deserve while "Yogi Bear" gets all the attention it can get. Do yourself a favor and watch this, you won't regret it. First time ever...I give it an A+
