Crazy, Stupid, Love. - Movie Review

Cal Weaver (Steve Carell) seems to have everything: good job, a house, married to his high school sweetheart, Emily  (Julianne Moore), with perfect children when Emily drops a bombshell on him and announces that she wants a divorce. Cal hits rock bottom wallowing in self pity when he meets womanizer Jacob (Ryan Gosling) at a bar. Tired of watching Cal tell his sob story to no one in particular every night, Jacob teaches Cal the secrets to get women to be attracted to him and open up a whole world of possibilities. It is a success but Cal still feels unhappy as he still has feelings for Emily. Cal isn't the only one with relationship problems: Cal's 13-year-old son Robbie (Jonah Bobo) pines over his 17-year-old babysitter Jessica (Analeigh Tipton) while Jacob is questioning all that he has taught Cal after meeting Hannah (Emma Stone) who makes him into a one-woman man.

Crazy, Stupid, Love. is a funny rom-com filled with laughs as well as endearing moments. The superb cast makes make this film this awesome. And yes, Josh Groban is in this movie! Steve Carell makes you be able to pity him by just pure body language and his expressions were hilarious. Ryan Gosling is a dream and plays the handsome player very well. I loved that exotic music and slow-mo embodies the sexiness of a person in this film but my favourite scene was the surprise at the end. I think others will agree with me that it wasn't expected at all. There are some cheesy moments but overall it is a funny, feel-good movie that leaves you satisfied leaving the theatre. 

Crazy, Stupid, Love. is in theatres Friday July 29, 2011.
