About the Movie

Sometimes you find love where you'd least expect it. Just ask Lars (Gosling), a sweet but quirky guy who thinks he's found the girl of his dreams in a life-sized doll named Bianca. Lars is completely content with his artificial girlfriend, but when he develops feelings for Margo, an attractive co-worker, Lars finds himself lost in a hilariously unique love triangle, hoping to somehow discover the real meaning of true love. Offbeat and endearing, this romantic comedy takes a fresh look at dating and relationships and dares to ask the question: What's so wrong with being happy?

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Under Mr. Gillespie's admirably directed seriousness of tone, the performers, particularly Mr. Gosling, Ms. Mortimer, Mr. Schneider, Ms. Clarkson, Ms. Gardner and Mr. Reid, never miss a beat. – Andrew Sarris, New York Observer, Jan 4, 2008

Fresh: Gosling's performance is a small miracle, not only because he's so completely open as a man who's essentially shut off, but because he changes and grows so imperceptibly before our eyes. – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, May 7, 2009

Fresh: Both hilarious and poignant, with a Capraesque humanity that caught me completely off guard. – J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Lars and the Real Girl remains suspended somewhere between perversity and pap, with only Gosling hinting at the mingling that might have been. – Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star, Sep 19, 2008

Cute wacky romantic story

The acting is actually pretty good, but the story still has me scratching my head... It wasn't clear why Lars was suddenly attached to that doll...I didn't really get much sense of who he was. was he looking for love in his screwed up inner craziness? or was he the result of his father's withdrawal from society?

A funny yet different film

The reason I gave this ***** is because I liked Ryan Gosling in this film (Oscar worthy) and the story because they all think that he is crazy but in the end the whole town really is crazy with him. I liked the story ther than a few glitches it was very good.

Great Movie

This movie was fantastic. It is a story that explores the inner workings of a man that has had to deal with a lot in his life. His past has shaped him into a man that is physically hurt by human company, and thus has to adapt by creating a fictious girlfriend in a plastic doll named Bianca. It is touching and funny, and this movie can be enjoyed by anyone.
