Rotten Tomatoes wasn't short of approval when it gave Crazy, Stupid, Love a mark of freshness from its critics. It was funny, smart, romantic, and has a lesson worth sharing about dating, sex and picking up strangers from a bar.
My beau and I were both laughing at how their predicament sounds like what we were going to experience after 20 years of being married. I couldn't help but look at him and smile while watching Steve Carell getting out of the car while Julianne Moore was still pouring her heart out. Seriously, how hard is it for men to find a little time to listen. It was pretty obvious that Emily (Julianne Moore) wasn't really intent on asking for the divorce. She probably just felt that she had to say something stronger to provoke Cal's feelings.
I've enjoyed watching Emma Stone in Easy A, it's not a surprise her role in here would be something of sexual nature. Still, I did enjoy her date with Ryan Gosling. The "Seriously!?! It's like your Photoshopped scene!" was one of the best parts in the movie. And here's one of those quotes I loved hearing.
Jacob: Are you Steve Jobs?
Jacob: Hold on a second. Are you the billionaire owner of Apple Computers?
Jacob: Oh. Okay. Well, in that case, you got no right to wear New Balance sneakers ever.
The Weaver's son Robbie was great at giving advices for his parents and his passionate enthusiasm to woe his babysitter Jessica was creepy yet sweet.
Overall, it's definitely one of those movies worth watching with a spouse, a partner or some friends.
