Last night I went to go see Crazy, Stupid Love, and it was a really god romantic comedy. It held a lot of truth to it. Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore, and Steve Carell star.
Cal Weaver (Steve Carell) gets the surprise of his life when he learns that his wife Emily (Julianne Moore) cheated on him with a coworker, David Lindhagen (Kevin Bacon), and wants a divorce. After moving into his own apartment, Cal begins frequenting a bar night after night, talking loudly about his divorce, until he attracts the attention of a young man named Jacob Palmer (Ryan Gosling). Jacob is a womanizer who successfully beds women each night, although a young woman named Hannah (Emma Stone) recently rejected his advances. Taking pity on Cal, Jacob agrees to teach him how to pick up women. Jacob takes Cal shopping, outfitting him with an entirely new wardrobe and begins teaching him the art of seduction. As they spend their evenings at the bar together, a friendship begins to blossom.
I loved how Cal (Carell) is so in love with Emily (Moore) and really tries to win her back. I also love how player Jacob (Gosling) totally falls for “PG-13” Hannah (Stone). Their relationship was my favorite. Also, the son, Robbie, was sweet with his infatuation with his babysitter. He never stopped trying:) And the movie ties up beautifully at the end.
Definitely worth going to see!
