Love is different, depending on what stage you’re in. That’s what Crazy, Stupid, Love is examining. This film, starring Steve Carell, Julianne Moore, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, gives us a look at first love, a lady killer’s downfall and a stale marriage hiding true love.
Sure, you know what’s probably coming for all of these couples, but it’s the cast that really grabs you here. Who knew Ryan Gosling was this funny?
In Crazy, Stupid, Love, Steve Carell plays Cal, a husband and father who is oblivious to his wife’s (Julianne Moore) discontent. She even went to see Twilight by herself. Now that is desperation. She cheats on him and asks for a divorce.
Poor Cal is a mess. Enter Gosling’s Jacob, a man out to conquer the world of women… until he meets Emma Stone’s Hannah, who won’t take his cheesy lines seriously. That’s always the one that sticks, isn’t it?
Check out the trailer below.
Are you guys looking forward to this one? The line that got me was the last one, when Hannah asks Jacob to take off his shirt. ”Seriously? You look like you’re airbrushed!”
Too true, Emma. Too true.
Crazy, Stupid, Love opens on July 29.
