2011 Holiday Gift Guide: Crazy Stupid Love Review

     Movies are always a great gift.  There are movies to fit every one's taste.  I prefer romantic comedy's when picking a movie, but I can be open to watch most anything else (but not horror movies, not a fan).  When Crazy, Stupid, Love came out in Theatres I wanted to see it.  Steve Carell is so funny on The Office.  But since I don't often get out to see movies I had to wait until it came out on DVD.  Well, its out and I get to share it with you.  I was sent Crazy, Stupid, Love (Blu-Ray - DVD - Download Combo Pack)

A little about the movie: 
     Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling lead an all-star cast in Crazy, Stupid, Love. Fortysomething straight-laced Cal Weaver (Carell) is living the dream—good job, nice house, great kids and marriage to his high school sweetheart, Emily (Julianne Moore). So when Cal learns that his wife has cheated on him and wants a divorce, his “perfect” life quickly unravels. Cal, who hasn't dated in decades, stands out as the epitome of un-smooth so handsome player Jacob Palmer (Gosling) takes him on as wingman and protégé, opening Cal’s eyes to the many options before him: flirty women, manly drinks and a sense of style. Despite Cal's makeover and his many new conquests, the one thing that can’t be made over is his heart, which seems to keep leading Cal back to where he began. Brimming with inspired performances, critics are calling this gem of a romantic comedy “a movie that understands love” (Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly).

     This movie is one you have to watch to know what is going on for sure.  There are lots of stories twisted in.  In the movie you begin to feel for Cal as he goes through this tough time in his life.  I enjoyed the movie.  This movie would make a great gift or stocking stuffer.
