The All Things Movies Valentines Day Countdown – Day 6: Crazy, Stupid, Love.

Lets take a look at Day 6 of the All Things Movies Valentines Day Countdown...

Crazy, Stupid, Love. (2011)
Dir: Glenn Ficarra, John Requa
Starring: Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore , Emma Stone

As the countdown continues, our next film on the All Things Movies Countdown is 2011’s Crazy, Stupid, Love. The film tells the story of Cal (Steve Carell) in the aftermath of his wife asking for a divorce. Frequenting his local bar to drown his sorrows, Cal finds help from the shockingly charming Jacob where he is taught the young Lotharios lifestyle in the hope of overcoming the breakup of his marriage.

Without a doubt, the film thrives with the strength of its ensemble cast. Carell gives an impressively authentic performance of a man out of his element while the on screen chemistry of Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling is so infectious, it would later go on to be at the heart of yesterdays entry to the countdown, La La Land.

It seems derivative but Crazy, Stupid, Love. is quite simply a really nice film. You like the characters, you feel for their situation and its rounded off in a way that gives you a warm feeling inside – perfect for a night in on Valentines Day!
