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.
