What an amazing cast in Crazy Stupid Love – a romantic comedy that is timely and hilarious!  Steve Carrell, Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore, Emma Stone, Marisa Tomei – wow!  They’re all fantastic.  The writing is very clever – lots of laughs, and also some pulling of the heartstrings.  Something for each of us to relate to.

Emily and Cal (Moore and Carrell) are long-time marrieds out to dinner when she springs on him that she wants a divorce.  Life as they knew it changes dramatically as they each struggle to find their footing in their new situations.  Cal gets some mentoring from a younger womanizer who ends up changing his life in more ways than one.  A few surprise twists keeps things interesting.

Highly recommended.
