Crazy, Stupid Love

Posted on July 30, 2011


Crazy, Stupid Love – Not a fan of Steve Carell (Cal) but he looks like he’d be a good dad and this movie works with that. His wife (Julianne Moore) cheats on him with Kevin Bacon, and who given the chance wouldn’t. He meets Jacob (Ryan Gosling) who takes Cal under his wing and teaches him how to score with lots of women. Making Carell into a sex symbol is completely unbelievable so just overlook that part and also the part where the 17 year old babysitter has a crush on him – yuck. The best part of the movie is with Ryan and Emma Stone (Hannah), and Cal’s 13 year old son who is in major love with the babysitter. Marisa Tomei is a teacher who has been sober for five years and apparently has not had sex in same number of years. Oh, and Josh Groban has a minor part as Hannah’s so very dull boyfriend.

It all comes together in a slapstick kind of ending. Still not a fan of Carell but it’s an easy to enjoy movie if you don’t ask a lot from it.
