DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Drama Romantic - This is a romantic comedy aimed at an adult audience and should have more adult appeal than most of its genre. Fans of Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling will especially enjoy. The women in the film have smaller roles, especially Marisa Tomei. Language and sex references make the film inappropriate for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good The strength of the movie, however formulaic its structure, is that it is slightly more thoughtful about its characters.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average Crazy, Stupid, Love is at its wisest when focusing on the inexplicable — but recognizable — craziness of love.

Washington Post Full Review
Average We might enjoy the ride while we're on it, but it will seem like a visit to another planet once we're home.

NY Post Full Review
Good Pity the crowds expecting another cute comedy like "Date Night" who wind up at "Crazy, Stupid, Love." It'll be like asking for a burger and getting served escargot.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
At fortysomething, straight-laced Cal Weaver (Steve Carell) is living the dream—good job, nice house, great kids and marriage to his high school sweetheart. But when Cal learns that his wife, Emily (Julianne Moore), has cheated on him and wants a divorce, his "perfect" life quickly unravels.

In today's single world, Cal, who hasn't dated in decades, stands out as the epitome of un-smooth. Spending his free evenings sulking alone at a local bar, the hapless Cal is taken on as wingman and protégé to handsome lothario Jacob Palmer (Ryan Gosling). In an effort to help Cal get over his wife and start living his life, Jacob opens Cal's eyes to the many options before him: flirty women, manly drinks and a sense of style that can't be found at Supercuts or The Gap.

Cal and Emily aren't the only ones looking for love in what might be all the wrong places: Cal's 13-year-old son, Robbie (Jonah Bobo), is in love with his 17-year-old babysitter, Jessica (Analeigh Tipton), who harbors a major crush of her own…on Cal. And even Jacob's new-woman-every-night modus operandi is challenged when he tries his best lines on Hannah (Emma Stone), a girl he just can't seem to get out of his mind—maybe because she's the first woman he's ever met who doesn't think this professional player has any game.
