One Review for “Crazy Stupid Love”

  1. Martin Murray says:

    Crazy, Stupid Love is a thoroughly enjoyable romantic comedy with two truly surprising plot twists. In fact, I just have to say for the first time in years I was really surprised by two events that happened on the screen.
    The story opens when good hearted everyman Cal (Steve Carrel) is being dumped by his wife of more than 20 years Emily (Julianne Moore) in a restaurant. She proceeds to tell him she has been unfaithful. Call takes the break up very hard and proceeds to start sleeping with everyone he can find. Of course this is difficult at first as he has never slept with anyone in his life other than Emily.
    While trolling the pick-up circuit one night walling in his sorrow, Cal meets Jacob (Ryan Gosling). Jacob is the man who can nail every woman that walks into the bar. He just goes up to them, starts talking to them and eventually takes them home. Jacob sees pathetic Cal and tells him he just needs some lessons in the art of the “pick-up.”
    Eventually Cal is successful and he picks up Kate (Marisa Tomei). Kate is a recovering alcoholic who is in need of companionship. Cal lovingly provides it.
    So, sets the stage for a true screwball comedy. Eventually, we are introduced to Cal’s son who has a teenage crush on his babysitter that gets out of hand and to Emma Stone as Hannah, a pick-up for Jacob, which may prove to be his one true love.
    The acting is excellent across the board in this romp, especially Emma Stone in what may be her true star making role. She has previously been excellent in Easy A among others, but this is her first stand out performance. She portrays vulnerable law student Hannah, who at first resists the advances of Jacob, but eventually succumbs to them; on her schedule, not his.
    One of the best scenes in the film is when Hannah and Jacob finally “Hook up” at Jacob’s home. During the foreplay, the two get to know each other and actually start talking which is something we find out that Jacob doesn’t usually do. It is the talking that leads to more talking and eventually leads to the beginnings of a relationship. However, we learn that Hannah is not stupid and she matches wits with Jacob every step along the way.
    Director John Requa does an excellent job in his first mainstream directing gig. His first film, “I Love you Philip Morris,” garnered much critical acclaim but did almost nothing in the commercial market place. This film should change it for him. He is definitely a director to watch in the next few months.
    Morally, the film should be condemned as it openly accepts pre-marital and extra marital liaisons without any penalty. It shows them just as a fact of life with no consequences. The film does however play up family values in its own little way.
