As comedies go, I think this is probably one of the better ones you will see this year.     Steve Carell plays Cal, a husband who splits from his high school sweetheart, played by Julianne Moore, after she cheats. Hanging out in single bars every nights he sees this ladies man played by Ryan Gosling successfully pick up numerous women, while he says out loud to anyone who will listen, 'my wife cheated on me with xxxx.'     Meanwhile his teenage son has the …

**1/2 out of ****    "Crazy, Stupid, Love" is a new romantic comedy that attempts to bend the rules of what seems like a perfectly typical (and complicated) love story. I'll openly admit that - while the results are undeniably entertaining and the film is a pleasant ride throughout - I was left desiring something more. The film, which is at first sight a well-cast and sweet effort for its kind, could be compared to a fine meal claiming to be composed of foreign cuisine; basically, …

I'll give them crazy and stupid.
CRAZY STUPID LOVE Written by Dan Fogelman Directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa Starring Steve Carell, Julianne Moore, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone   Jacob: Be better than the Gap.   Well, I’ll give them “crazy” and “stupid” but that’s pretty much where the love stops for me. CRAZY STUPID LOVE is yet another romantic comedy that gets lost in all the crazy highs and stupid lows we have all come to associate with that elusive and all encompassing …

The movie opens with the heartbreak that drives the rest of the movie. Cal played by Steve Carell learns in the middle of a packed restaurant that his marriage is about to end and his wife Emily, played by Julianne Moore, cheated on him with a co-worker. This is not the start to the romantic comedy that we are used to, and from here it could go anywhere. They decide to keep the movie in the comedic wheel house but not without a few dramatic moments.      There is a lot jammed …

Star Rating:         Crazy, Stupid, Love. is very much a movie, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. The fact that it’s so innately cinematic, however, ultimately diminished my ability to appreciate it on a deeper level. This is somewhat disappointing because there are select moments so well written and performed that they show a great deal of intelligence and warmth on the part of directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa and screenwriter Dan Fogelman …

There’s always something I can find to love in a romantic comedy. I can always appreciate the sense of wish fulfillment, the authentic sweetness of some, or just how, well, love-able some of the characters can be. In Crazy, Stupid, Love’s case, it’s all three. Crazy Stupid Love (or “CSL” as it’s going to be known for the rest of this review) is, at times, predictable and it’s a film that by all means plays to the romantic comedy tropes, but it’s also …
