Tuesday Trailer Breakdown: Crazy Stupid Love


What could work: The excellent cast. Steve Carrell, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Julianne Moore, Kevin Bacon and Marisa Tomei. That sounds great on paper. They are all actors that adapt well to anyone and can create chemistry.

Ryan Gosling..sans shirt. Yep, I said it. You can't really go wrong with a shirtless Gosling. He's a fantastic actor, so it's like a bonus.


What might not: Judging by the trailer it's walking a fine line between rom-com cliche. Hopefully the humor and cast will pull it away from being just another rom-com.

It sort of reminds me of Dan in Real Life. Sure, the plot is completely different, but I can't shake Steve Carrell's previous film. It just wasn't that good.

Random Thought: Emma Stone is a doll. I loved her in Easy A, she's instantly likeable.

When to see it: I'll catch a matinee when I have the time. Unless it gets great reviews from all those early watchers. Then I'll make more of an effort.

  1. It may look like a Rom-Com cliche, but the fact that it's written and directed by the same team behind I Love You Phillip Morris and Bad Santa makes me extremely optimistic about this one. With that pedigree behind the camera and this cast (oh what a cast!), it's easily my most anticipated comedy this summer.

    I bet the positive buzz will sway you to see it earlier than planned. :-)

  2. I think this is going to be a sleeper hit. People who screened it are absolutely raving about it. Loved the trailer and glad to see Gosling do something mainstream once again.
