Crazy, Stupid, Love.
At fortysomething, straight-laced Cal Weaver (Steve Carell) is living the dream-good job, nice house, great kids and marriage to his high school sweetheart. But when Cal learns that his wife, Emily (Julianne Moore), has cheated on him and wants a divorce, his "perfect" life quickly unravels. Worse, in today's single world, Cal, who hasn't dated in decades, stands out as the epitome of un-smooth.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This is witless, saccharine and lifeless..."
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"This is not the ultimate romantic comedy - the one that makes you fall as hard for the characters as they do for one another while savoring their every interaction - but it seems fresher and less recycled than much of the product out there."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"This well-cast comedy easily stands high above many of the romantic comedies we've seen in recent years."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"Steve Carell, with Ryan Gosling as his wing man? Go figure."
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"I laughed and I cried in this happy, crazy and spectacularly funny film that is one of the most enjoyable of the year."
‑ Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
"There's strong, fleetingly powerful stuff in Crazy, Stupid, Love., but like its awkwardly punctuated title, the movie jerks to a halt just when it's beginning to flow."
‑ Sam Adams, Los Angeles Times
"This is the sort of film that Oscar generally ignores come awards season. It shouldn't. Crazy Stupid Love is a crazy smart film."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"This is a movie with a bigger heart than a brain. As frustrating as it can be, still, there are worse offenses."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"It'll make you laugh, it'll make you'll frown, it might even make you cry, but mostly it'll just make you want to have sex with Ryan Gosling."
‑ Ali Gray,
"The deft balance between humor and more earnest matters of the heart makes for the best of both worlds."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"It gets better and funnier after a labored and lumbering start, which is entirely the opposite of most Hollywood comedies."
‑ Andrew O'Hehir,
"The directors show a great talent for jagged-edged farce."
‑ Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York
"Crazy, Stupid, Love has several humorous spots and is filled with good performances from the entire cast."
‑ Jeff Beck, We Got This Covered
"While "Crazy, Stupid, Love" does have several funny parts, it was rather hard to shake the feeling that the film was too drawn out for the story it was trying to tell."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"The affable atmosphere is perpetuated by the consistently engaging nature of Fogelman's screenplay..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
