Tonight’s movie on date night was Crazy, Stupid Love with Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling. I give it a YES GO SEE it. It was funny, not completely predictable, and Carell once again performed as he has before – wonderfully.
The movie plot is Carell’s character Cal Weaver is a 40-something man whose wife has an affair and asks him for a divorce. Heartbroken, he starts hitting bars and hooks up with Gosling’s Jacob Palmer, who shows him the ropes of the dating scene.
I liked it because it was funny in a different way. One would think that a movie about divorce has a been-there, done-that quality, but this one was different as it was more about the human spirit of finding “the one” than it was about the sadness associated with some divorcs. (Mine was not sad at all – it was a happy experience. More about that some other time.)
I give it a yes, and you should go see it, if you are so inclined.
