Crazy, Stupid, Love

All-star romantic comedy from the directors of I Love You Phillip Morris.

Steve Carell plays straight-laced Cal, a man having trouble readjusting to single life after his wife (Julianne Moore) cheats on him and divorces. Single and desperately un-cool, Cal sulks his nights away at the local bar. That is until he meets Jacob (Ryan Gosling), a suave man-slapper and player, who takes Cal on as his wingman and protege. Jacob attempts to sharpen his style to get him back in the game. Also stars Marisa Tomei, Emma Stone and Kevin Bacon.

Gosling, you GOD

a sweet, light and funny watch. better than a lot of the current train-wreck rom-coms that have been hitting the screens. Ryan Gosling's beautiful-ness made up for the less-than-great parts! Carell does well in this film and I also love Emma Stone.

Doesn't know what it wants to be

Tone is important in comedies, defining whether a film is a slapstick farce, a witty observational charmer, a bawdy romp or a darkly comic satire (among others). Unfortunately Crazy, Stupid, Love. is as undecided on its tone as its over-punctuated title. All the actors seem to be starring in different movies and any genuine originality the film might have...

An enjoyable Rom-Com

Finally went to see this on 2Degree twofer day. Enjoyed the movie. It was funny, romantic, feel-good, and yes, of course has a happy ending for all concerned. Ryan Gosling's bod is indeed photoshopped and we get to see it for a few mins which is a bonus. All the characters are reasonably appealing. Funny turn by Marissa Tormei as a teacher. Recommend it...

Not your usual Carrell comedy

I was pleasantly surprised. Straight forward story with twists & turns of family, love, reconciliation & light heartedness. Funny in parts, but don't go in expecting the usual Carrell bloke humour. I think both sexes will enjoy, loved the Dirty Dancing scene. Would give 3*.

A modern script

An easy watch about relationships and human emotions.It is not a total comedy as one would expect but does have some laughs along the way.But it is all tastfully done.The actors are the ones that hold it all together.Not a total chick-flick.

Funny but not Steve Carell funny.

This movie is humerous but not the kind of steve carell humour that most people are used to, i would almost compare the humour to his movie dan in real life. The story line was really good and it had a few awesome suprises that i didn't see coming. Ryan Gosling is pretty easy on the eyes whuch made for easy viewing. Its not your usual chick flick so drag...

A good watch

A very entertaining film. Although it starts to drag on a bit in the middle it quickly picks up and doesn't let up for the rest of the film. Brilliant performances from the entire cast. Enjoy it

A Comedy With A Difference

While most of the more adult comedies this year have focused on gross out gags, it was refreshing to see a comedy which tackled the genre from a completely different angle, nicely balancing out the more serious, sombre tones of it's narrative with the laugh out loud one liners. It doesn't always work so fluidly, with the opening sequences labored and...

Old-fashioned as that might sound, there's a fresh, insightful feel to this multigenerational love story.

What makes it worth watching, and worth liking, is the sense that it arrives at its warm and comforting view of things not by default but by choice.

The romantic comedy and its stellar cast play out each of the title's three words to brilliant effect, but it's love in all its permutations that comes away with the starring role.

The movie suffers perhaps from too many characters and subplots but all the actors appear to have fun with their characters.

For most of the way, Crazy, Stupid, Love coasts more than agreeably on the talents of four hugely charismatic actors and a tart, knowing script that tweaks the rom-com formula just enough to seem fresh.
