In this comedy, Lars Lindstrom is an awkwardly shy young man in a small northern town who finally brings home the girl of his dreams to his brother and sister-in-law's home. The only problem is that she's not real - she's a sex doll Lars ordered off the Internet. But sex is not what Lars has in mind, but rather a deep, meaningful relationship. His sister-in-law is worried for him, his brother thinks he's nuts, but eventually the entire town goes along with his delusion in support of this sweet natured boy that they've always loved.

The "Real Doll" was featured on The Graham Norton Effect. The doll was given to the show and was stated as costing $6,000. She arrived in the same kind of crate that is shown in the movie.

One man was told to go into the bathroom, take off his pants and wait for her. He did. See more »

Have there been any changes in the family in the last year or so?
[while Karin simultaneously nods "Yes"]
No, everything is pretty much exactly the same except Karin is pregnant and Lars is nuts.
You know, this isn't necessarily a bad thing. What we call mental illness isn't always just an illness. It can be a communication; it can be a way to work something out.
Fantastic. When will it be over?
When he doesn't need it anymore.
How can we help?
Go along with it.
Oh, no. No, that's... No.

This movie was brilliantly written. I saw this film about a month ago and we were probably one of the first public to see it and I would not change a thing. Ryan, I have to say was just awesome and I can see him going to the top. This film is cleverly written and I was laughing so hard in this movie that I almost had to stand up because I was hurting. The people around me in the theater said the same thing they loved this film and this would be at the top of my Recommendation Movie List to Must See.
I won't be giving away the film but I all I can say is go see it. Kudos to the writer and director and this movie was perfectly written for Ryan.
