I’m the last guy in the world that would endorse a romantic comedy. In fact I’ll add that I’d also be the last guy to recommend a “chick flick.” The funny thing is that I think people must have construed this movie as both of these things when it is in fact not.
Just because Ryan Gosling is completely ripped and gets girls in this movie doesn’t make it a chick flick. I mean yeah, Emma Stone being in it doesn’t help. but whatever. Anyway, I’m just saying that Crazy Stupid Love is extremely good, witty, and sincere.
For those of you that don’t know, it centers on how a middle-aged husband’s life changes dramatically when his wife asks him for a divorce. He seeks to rediscover his manhood with the help of a new-found friend Jacob, learning to pick up girls at bars.
What you don’t know is that this movie has an incredibly awesome twist and the performances by Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling are extremely memorable. It’s just a feel good movie, and I think you guys owe it to yourselves to see it.
Trailer after the jump….
Trust me, it’s good.
