  • Quirky. Wacky. Offbeat. OutrĂ©. The words that come to mind regarding Paper Man might prompt you run in the opposite direction. And perhaps you should, except for the performances of Jeff Daniels and Emma Stone. show more

  • Paper Man is a bad idea, and the film, despite a few brave and good performances, never recovers from awkwardness of its premise. show more

  • Aided by subtly wounded performances by Daniels and Stone, and a surprisingly affecting comic turn from Reynolds, Paper Man makes up for many of its shortcomings with an abundance of heart. show more
