Consensus: It never lives up to the first part of its title, but Crazy, Stupid, Love's unabashed sweetness -- and its terrifically talented cast -- more than make up for its flaws.

It gets better and funnier after a labored and lumbering start, which is entirely the opposite of most Hollywood comedies.

Sean Burns
Philadelphia Weekly

A slickly polished, perhaps too carefully-structured romantic comedy that benefits immeasurably from Gosling's brand of anarchy.

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.

This well-cast comedy easily stands high above many of the romantic comedies we've seen in recent years.

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.

This is the sort of film that Oscar generally ignores come awards season. It shouldn't. Crazy Stupid Love is a crazy smart film.

This is a movie with a bigger heart than a brain. As frustrating as it can be, still, there are worse offenses.

Apart from disliking the casting, the film was okay as a drama. I presumed that it's a rom-com. The com part would have helped getting some light moments.… More
