Movie Review: Crazy, Stupid, Love

Yesterday I went to an advance screening of “Crazy, Stupid, Love” (in theaters July 29).  I could just say, go see this movie so you can drool over Ryan Gosling, but that wouldn’t be a very good review, nor would it accurately capture just why this is a film that’s definitely worth your 13 bucks!

 

The movie opens with Emily (Julianne Moore) admitting to her straight-laced—and very oblivious—husband Cal (Steve Carell) that she’s cheated on him and wants a divorce.  This sudden split from his high school sweetheart instantly turns Cal’s life upside down.  He starts hanging out at the local bar, where he spends time lamenting to whoever will listen about his depressing situation.  Here he meets the amazingly suave playboy, Jacob (Ryan Gosling), who decides to give this poor soul help rediscovering his manhood and getting back in the dating scene.

 

In the meanwhile, Robbie (Jonah Bobo), Cal’s 13-year-old son, is experiencing his first major crush on his babysitter, Jessica (Analeigh Tipton).  Jessica is in love with Cal.  And Jacob eventually finds love, too.

 

In theaters Friday, July 29

 

“Crazy, Stupid, Love” is an entertaining, feel-good, romantic comedy.  It’s a love triangle (or…pentagon?) with unexpected twists and intersections between the characters’ lives.  The three main subplots coincide smoothly throughout the movie and once they merge (or should I say, collide), you are in for some serious laughs. The movie’s pace is comfortable, allowing you to connect with each of the characters and remain entertained throughout. Some of the characters do pretty outlandish—well…crazy, stupid—things that make you squirm, but that’s part of what makes the movie so fun.

 

The cool thing about this movie is that viewers of all ages, from preteens to grandparents, can relate to and enjoy it. Whether you’re stumbling on your first, serious puppy dog crush or you’ve discovered your soulmate, this movie will speak to you. It makes you believe in love, fight for love, and respect love. It shows the dangers of falling into a rut—and the importance of keeping love fresh.

 

The actors were well-cast and had good chemistry and the dialogue was natural.  Who was the standout?  I can’t even say.  Each actor in this star-studded cast did a great job.  The film also stars Emma Stone, Marisa Tomei, Beth Littleford, John Carroll Lynch and Kevin Bacon.

 

I give it 3.75 of 5 stars

 

kisses, Olisa
