I’m not sure how Crazy, Stupid, Love. has slipped past my radar, despite all that punctuation. It’s a romantic comedy starring Steve Carell, Julianne Moore, Ryan Gosling (Lars and the Real Girl, Half Nelson), Emma Stone, Kevin Bacon (Guiding Light), and Marisa Tomei; written by the Dan Fogelman (Tangled, Bolt, Cars); and directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, the writer-directors behind criminally-underseen I Love You, Phillip Morris (not to mention the writers of Bad Santa, which is one of my favorite comedies of the last twenty years).
I laughed out loud several times at the trailer, and the humor goes a little black more than once â€” and some early buzz seems to indicate that there’s more than just laughs to the whole movie. You can read the synopsis (or see the trailer in HD) over at iTunes Movie Trailers, but you get everything you need just by watching this:
