Lists: Comedy, Drama, Romance, Romantic Comedy, Chick Flicks, Mentor

Brief Synopsis: "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. Worse, in today's single world, Cal, who hasn't dated in decades, stands out as the epitome of un-smooth. Now spending his free evenings sulking alone at a local bar, the hapless Cal is taken on as wingman and protégé to handsome, thirtysomething player Jacob Palmer (Ryan Gosling)."

Bryan Lienesch89 - I will defend my manhood 'till my last dying breath, but I loved this refreshingly complex, easy-on-the-sap romantic comedy

Rob from GuysFilmQuest83 - A chick flick which guys will probably enjoy. Carrel does a great job as the sympathetic-but-not-sad-sack male lead. Gosling plays a guys guy whos one of my favorite characters of the year. Emma Stone is around for some eye candy, for those of you who find her attractive. For guys who have kids, Id recommend checking it out. Guys under the age of 19 might not enjoy it, but everyone else will probably enjoy it, and its definitely a movie you can watch with a female significant other.

Dan O'Neill60 - There are moments here that seem incredibly intelligent while others just have you shake your head at the predictable cheesy moments that take so much away from Crazy, Stupid, Love. despite an amazing cast and good moments of being smarter than other rom-coms out there.
