Movie Review: Crazy, Stupid, Love.

crazy stupid love 01


"Crazy, Stupid, Love." is a romantic comedy about crazy and stupid love- yes, the title actually describe the movie's story perfectly. It contains hilarious and hilariously awkward moments that you wouldn't want to watch with your parents. But like how we love watching train wrecks, the movie has that charm.

Cal (Steve Carell) played the dad whose life fell apart when Emily (Julianne Moore) asked for a divorce. Through the process Cal met Jacob (Ryan Gosling), a womanizer who taught him to smarten up and got him back together. The story contained both male and female perspective which made it enjoyable for everyone, as we could all relate.


Steve Carell played the usual honest, loving but suck at life character like in his other movies. It was nothing out of the ordinary. But it was impressive to watch Ryan Gosling come from being the hopeless romantic in "The Notebook" to a womanizer with a fabulous tanned body and washboard abs. Did I ever tell you that I oogle over ridiculously simple things?

Though this is a nice romantic comedy, it felt a bit long. I found myself checking my watch a few times. One thing for sure though, Ryan Gosling was more sizzling than my sizzling Saturday morning bacon.

I give the movie 3.5/5 Ryan Gosling abs.

  16. Honey....washboard abs are not ridiculously simple...it is TOTALLY droolicious! Ok is that even a word? I like Ryan Gosling too and can't see him as a womanizer but it's always good for an actor to play different roles.

  17. :O I wanna watch this as well!! Seems like a great comedy... Haven't been to a theater in so long!! I think my last time was inception yikes!..

    Mmm don't know if u know or not but aside from luxe box there's also glymm boxxxxxx haven't tried it yet.. Waiting for mine to arrive in mid aug but the great thing about glymm is that u get to collect points to spend on their online store(buying full size of the samples)... Basically exactly like birch box lol n if ppl sign up under my link i get points too!! If u ever wanna try it i would love it if you can sign up under this link (http://www.glymm.com/share/alexandra_mo)^^... can wait to review it where it arrives.. U can also try luxe box for 3 months first just to test it out..

    Btw thinking about mantracker I THINK I've seen one episode where they got out ran!! Inrmb hearing the man tracker say they were good competitors and they had some hurdle where the horses couldn't go thru it so it killed some time... But I'm not too sure.. I have very bad memory lol

  19. I've seen the trailer for this film like 15 million times this summer. Lol. Good to know it's not a total trainwreck. I guess you really can't go wrong with such an all-star cast. I might actually see this some time if I'm super bored. Great review!

  20. Haha, you would love to see Ryan's abs! :)

  25. Ryan is the only reason I really wanna watch this movie!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Haven't seen this yet...I hate when films carry on too long though. The last flick I saw was Beginners, which I thought did a fantastic job of ending the story at the right time (or maybe even just before the right team, which left the audience perfectly wanting more).

  27. Haha...love your rating system! ;P

  28. I so want to watch this movie, Steve is hilarious and Ryan a cutie, what's not to love!

  34. I only saw the trailer and it seemed like Juliane Moore's character slept with someone else and I was like wuuut. LOL Don't get back together with her! But maybe I misunderstood.
