Crazy, Stupid, Love. (2011)

Directors: Glenn Ficarra, John Requa
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Cast: Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore, Emma Stone

Plot: Midlife crisis for a longtime couple.

“Crazy, Stupid, Love.” is delightful film—like a breath of fresh air of late. Steve Carell has become one of the best of current actors when it comes to romantic comedies. He simply lights up the screen with his presence. 

Crazy Stupid LoveThe film won’t offer you anything new but there are humorous, little family-twists that keep it ‘fun’ all the way. Carell and Ryan Gosling form up a dashing wingman combo. Julianne Moore is well familiar with the genre and gives a neat performance along with all the other actors. She looked beautiful as ever, and even young and sensational Emma Stone doesn’t overshadow her on-screen. As always, Marisa Tomei is loud and cheerful and poses up nicely for the film’s poster! She seem to have come an altogether different route since ‘Untamed Heart’ with Christian Slater, looked so promising and pretty there; but now it seems she’ll only play the second leads. Kevin Bacon, after the intense villainy in X-Men First Class, enjoys the film in a short role as a punching bag!

Overall, "Crazy, Stupid, Love." is a kind of film that will brighten your day even when down in the dumps.

  2. This is a wonderful review, thank you! I let my wife talk me into adding Crazy-Stupid-Love to our Blockbuster @Home queue since I’m not into romantic comedies. Normally, I like that my Blockbuster @Home always keeps me up to date on what discs will soon arrive or whether they’ve checked in one that I’ve already sent back. This time was different, and I got a little nervous since I just got an email from them that the disc would arrive tomorrow. One of my co-workers at Dish told me that it’s not a bad chick-flick, but I’m so glad that I was able to find your blog because I now have hope that I might enjoy this movie.

  3. Hope you & wife did enjoy it, Jared :)

    Between, sorry for the late response.
