From Dumb & Dumber and The Martian, through to Arachnophobia and Steve Jobs - we salute the screen work of Jeff Daniels...
They say that when you play the Game of Thrones, “you win or you die”. The Game of Jeff Daniels, however, is an undeniably different beast and for the most part is a definite “you win or you win”. After viewing dozens of Jeff Daniels movies and spending many, many hours with his on-screen personas, it’s fair to say that the maxim has been sorely tested but guess what? It still holds true. This list has been carefully curated to celebrate the veteran actor’s talent, versatility and wit and no matter which (if any) of these movies you decide to revisit or check out for the first time, Jeff is guaranteed to give you something to love in each and every one.

Trailer Score: 6/10
My Thoughts: Trailers aren’t always the best indication of a film’s merit. Usually they just highlight its marketability. That’s what I’m hoping is the case on this one. Judging from the trailer, the film seems a little unfocused on its protagonist, which can be a real problem. Is he just immature? Or is he mentally ill? Because, and it may sound harsh, Daniels has the makings of a crazy man in this one. And I’m just going to throw this out there, Ryan Reynolds, I don’t care how hot you are, the bleach blond look is not working for you. The trailer’s full of minor distractions, but the emotional sincerity of it seems to be there in full force. I’m always
