Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling lead an all-star cast in Crazy, Stupid, Love. Fortysomething straight-laced Cal Weaver (Carell) is living the dream—good job, nice house, great kids and marriage to his high school sweetheart, Emily (Julianne Moore). So when Cal learns that his wife has cheated on him and wants a divorce, his “perfect” life quickly unravels. Cal, who hasn't dated in decades, stands out as the epitome of un-smooth so handsome player Jacob Palmer (Gosling) takes him on as wingman and protégé, opening Cal’s eyes to the many options before him: flirty women, manly drinks and a sense of style. Despite Cal's makeover and his many new conquests, the one thing that can’t be made over is his heart, which seems to keep leading Cal back to where he began. Brimming with inspired performances, critics are calling this gem of a romantic comedy “a movie that understands love” (Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly).
Crazy, Stupid, Love is a romantic comedy with a big heart--a refreshing change from its Hangover-laden compatriots, and almost a throwback to a golden era of romance. For Crazy, Stupid, Love relies on the sharp writing by Dan Fogelman (animated hits like Bolt, Tangled) and the sparkly chemistry of its cast, led by Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore, and the emerging superstar Emma Stone. It's not that the plot is ground-breaking--maybe, in fact, the appeal of Crazy, Stupid, Love is that it's all too relatable. Cal (Carell) is long married to Emily (Moore), until one day she drops divorce on him, out of the blue. Stunned, Cal tries to reassemble his life as a woefully unprepared single guy. Enter Jacob (Gosling, who's never been better) as a happy bachelor whose tips for Cal will be ones that even the most happily wed female viewers will secretly want their mates to hear. Marisa Tomei has a hilarious turn as a temptress who's way out of Cal's league. And Stone is the fresh-faced, fearless young woman who shakes the confident Jacob's supposedly solid world view.
But it's the interplay between the characters, the true humanness of their emotions--long missing from many contemporary "romantic comedies"--that set Crazy, Stupid, Love in a class of its own. Moore is more than just the weary, accusatory neglected wife--someone who's never stopped believing in the spark of love. Gosling could easily be his generation's Cary Grant--assured, quick-witted, sly, yet vulnerable. Carell once again shows his dramatic capabilities on top of his impeccable comic timing. And Stone is a revelation, lovely, delicate, vulnerable but strong. Crazy, Stupid, Love will reaffirm the viewer's belief in all that's possible. Call us crazy. --A.T. Hurley

The story line has twists and turns and a big reveal that I did not see coming at all. The writers and director really thought this one out, and I was so impressed after I watched it the first time. This movie has become a go-to when I want to be entertained.
Now, I can't help but mention Ryan Gosling. Oh, Ryan Gosling. His character is kinda like Adam Levine in real life. He's a jerk, but you can't help but love him. He's a player, but a really well dressed, rich, buff player. He and Steve's interactions are priceless. The shopping scene cracks me up, and for the ladies, there's a scene where he's topless and Emma Stone exclaims "it's like you're photoshopped".
I just love that it's real. Some of the parts may be over the top as far as realistic life situations, but, I love how it all comes together in the end. This movie somehow slipped under the radar for me when it came out, but I feel it deserves a place on everyone's shelf.
I bought a used copy, which arrived in excellent condition and MUCH sooner than expected! Made for a great movie night at home.
The blu ray presentation is quite remarkable. The video is spot on with a clarity that truly pops. Colors are vibrant and bright with flesh tones realistic and true. The black/white ratio is excellent and the overall crispness of the picture is that one may not expect from a romantic comedy. And the audio matches it. Dialogue is strong and present with the surround speakers used perfectly for ambience and club scenes. The overall presentation is a perfect example of blu ray at its best.
I honestly loved this film. I did not see it in the theater and after purchasing it here at Amazon have watched it 3 times already and each time it makes me laugh more while also touching me more with its heartfelt and realistic message. And with each viewing I am struck again by how great Ryan Gosling is here. Who knew he had such great comedic chops. Add to that his always superb character development and it becomes one of his best roles so far. Highly recommend this film. This is a film that will have you in stitches laughing while also shedding some tears for these characters you will truly fall in love with.
I hope you find my review helpful.
