Crazy, Stupid, Love
When a middle-aged Steve Carell is thrown into a mid-life crisis after his wife orders “divorce” for desert, he decides its time to take back his manhood. Or so that’s how it is sold to him by the ladiesman who takes him under his wing.
This movie is smartly written. It’s funny yet down to earth and has a top quality love story. So my dudes, fear not! A mushy romantic comedy this is not. (But we’ll just keep pretending you don’t actually enjoy some of those mushy rom-coms). This love story has the realistic grounding that makes you truly believe in it. Plus how can you turn down a funny Ryan Gosling? No doubt it will shoot to the top of the list of your favorite movies. I know it’s one of mine.
No matter how many times I’ve seen it, it doesn’t get old. Good stories rarely do. Love takes work, but loving this movie was easy.
