Crazy Stupid Love
Crazy Stupid Love centers on Cal Weaver (Steve Carell), a middle-aged husband with children whose life changes dramatically when his wife (Julianne Moore) asks him for a divorce. Over 40 and suddenly single, Cal seeks to rediscover his manhood with the help of a newfound friend, Jacob (Ryan Gosling), a self-styled player who takes him under his wing and teaches him how to be a hit with the ladies.
Directed by Glen Ficara and John Requa from a script by Dan Fogelman, Crazy Stupid Love is a fun and entertaining rom-com with lots of twists and turns executed by a talented cast. Though the movie is full of genre cliches and its plot gets ludicrous at times, Carell and Gosling keep the film going with their special brand of chemistry.
