Starring Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, and Steve Carell, Crazy, Stupid, Love is one of the romantic comedies that live up to its name. While the movie has its own highs and lows throughout the run time, it manages to keep one hooked till the end.
The storyline is unusual, a little at least. Cal, a man in his 40s is facing a divorce from his beloved high school sweetheart wife and has a tough time believing it with two young kids at home. In order to get through the reality, he learns the art of picking up hot girls at the bar with the help of his newly found friend, Jacob. Given how Jacob has been characterized as a heartthrob, Ryan Gosling plays and acts the role way too well. However, the tables turn when Jacob falls in love with Hannah, a girl he had been trying to pick up at the bar since a long time. Tragedy? Well, Hannah turns out to be Cal’s Nanna. Now, I won’t reveal much because I’m not really a spoiler giver person.
If I have set enough intriguing plots for you, you shouldn’t wait for long and watch this old rom com right away if you still haven’t. The direction, narration, dialogue delivery, and acting are all superb in the movie. Rather to be very honest, they are the highlights of the movie since the storyline is not that difficult to predict too.
All in all, Crazy, Stupid, Love is fun, relatable (on many levels), and sweet in its own charming way. The movie may feel dull at some moments but it is then a new act of surprise pops up to take you by surprise.
