  • Crazy, Stupid, Love.

    Crazy, Stupid, Love. (2011)

    Rated PG-13, 118 min. Directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa. Starring Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore, Emma Stone, Jonah Bobo, Marisa Tomei, Kevin Bacon, Analeigh Tipton and John Carroll Lynch.

    A few contrivances too many make this otherwise appealing romantic comedy seem occasionally ungainly, yet its sensational cast manages to breezily flick away most distractions. As Cal Weaver, the character at the center of this love storm, Carell delivers a more dramatic turn, although his confused everyman demeanor always packs a chuckle or two. When Cal’s wife of more than 25 years, Emily (Moore), informs him that she has cheated on him and wants a divorce, the gobsmacked Cal moves out of their house and into a tailspin. While moping at a singles bar, he is inexplicably taken in by the resident Lothario, Jacob (Gosling), who makes over Cal in his own image. The goopy climax threatens to undo much of the film's good will, but, as far as nonraunchy, adult-geared rom-coms go these days, Glenn Ficarra and John Requa's Crazy, Stupid, Love. leads the pack by several heads.
