Here is a film that aims at satisfying both the guys, forced into watching it, as well as the women, lured by the romantic premise of the title and promos.
For the guys there is plenty of manly action with lessons about getting laid, while for the women there is the sweet promise that ultimately, true love wins.
Granted, romantic comedies are a challenging genre when it comes to originality... Crazy, Stupid, Love does have its moments of wit, fun and some originality. Its an entertaining summer movie with something for everyone – lost love, found love, true love, fantasy love, you name it. What makes the film work, when it does work, are actors that fill in for the otherwise shallow-written characters. Their interactions make the film flow. The allstar cast includes Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore, Marisa Tomei, Kevin Bacon and most notably Emma Stone who shows promising signs in terms of the next generation of actresses.
Don’t expect much of this film and you may enjoy it.
