Life is too short to spend 2 hours of it watching this movie...

WIthout a doubt: the worst movie we've seen in years. Great cast. But even they could not hold such a bad script together. The music, totally clashing with the 'moment' and sampling every style, is randomly splattered all over the place in an editorial attempt to paper over the weak plot. And now I've wasted another 5 minutes trying to warn you all! Just don't do it!

Oh, and they won't let me leave 0 stars!

Gets better and better...

I finally bought a copy of this movie to add to my DVD collection, because I'm tired of waiting for Netflix to send it every time I want to watch it. I'm not sure why I like it so much; it's a good story, with great actors doing great acting, but it's not Oscar-movie material. Still, I find myself wanting to see it again about once a year - and I seem to find some new perspective on life, or some new insight into the ups & downs of human relationships, every time I do watch it. What brings people together, what keeps them together, what tears them apart, what they learn when their hearts get broken - because it seems to take pain and heartbreak to teach us the lessons of life and love - how they learn to forgive (or not!), where and who they learn the best lessons from - it seems that all of that is continually changing, yet somehow remains the same. I feel the same roller coaster of emotions every time I watch it; and I always see some lesson I think I probably need to learn - or re-learn - about myself and my relationships. I cringe at the word "Stupid" used next to "Love", but it seems to work in the title.
I bought a used copy, which arrived in excellent condition and MUCH sooner than expected! Made for a great movie night at home.

Great Show! Romantic comedy
Verified purchase
This story is based on Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream" Everybody falls in love with the wrong person, but it all gets sorted out in the end. Great actors, good acting, even the child actors are excellent. Extremely well written, compared to most hollywood movies. Enjoy it!

Funny RomCom with Great Cast
Verified purchase
Classic Steve Carrell romcom. Great cast including Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Julianne Moore, and others. A sweet movie about the good and bad aspects of love and relationships from the viewpoints of married, young adults and teenagers. Loved this movie when I saw it in theatres and it did not disappoint rewatching. Great movie for a date night.

Love will make you do good & bad but the balance between the two is key
Verified purchase
Love will make you do crazy and stupid things which is the premise of this romantic comedy. You wouldn’t think that at the start when Emily (Julianna Moore) tells her husband Cal (Steve Carell) that she slept with a co-worker and she wants a divorce. Cal is so distraught he jumps out of their moving car. That’s example of some of the comedy included in the movie.

It focuses upon Cal meeting a ladies man named Jacob (Ryan Gosling). Jacob tries to help Cal with his self-image and ends up changing as well when he meets Hannah (Emma Stone). The plot turns out to be about how Cal and Jacob both end up changing and become alike when they were polar opposites.

The movie definitely has a series of very memorable comedic moments. The romance is well done as well. It leads to an unlikely transformation. It makes Crazy Stupid Love well worth seeing.

Easily the best RomCom of the decade
Verified purchase
This is a terrific movie - heartfelt, just shy of understated, and profoundly clever. The cast is exceptional and the script is really top-notch. It's one that my wife and I enjoy equally and laugh all the way through every time, even as we go back year after year

Surprisingly funny rom-com
Verified purchase
For an American rom-com, Crazy, Stupid, Love is a surprisingly hilarious movie. The dialogue is witty and the editing really helps the comedic timing. Carrel gives a great performance as usual, and he and Gosling bounce off each other very well. I love the scene where all the plotlines converge and the fight ensues. The music is a little overbearing at times, but it doesn't ruin it.

As rom-coms go, this one's good
Verified purchase
Ryan Gosling is brilliant. I mean, he plays the same character he always does, but here his suave Mr. Cool is the perfect foil to Steve Carell's middle-aged geek -- Inspired casting. But also, the movie didn't get too mired down in sentiment, making it overly cheezy. It's not a perfect, happy ending. People got hurt. Relationships are going to have to be mended, and it won't be an easy road. And some will just have to move on. Pretty much love in a nutshell. (I'd love to know who finally got the iPad for coming up with the movie name.)
