It's time for another movie review!!
This time I have reviewing my FAVORITE movie of the summer: Crazy, Stupid Love.
Going into it I knew this movie was going to be a winner on the cast alone. Especially because three of my favorite actors are in it! Here is a breakdown of the main cast:
Steve Carell plays Cal
Ryan Gosling plays Jacob
Emma Stone plays Hannah
There are a couple more wonderful supporting actors such as Kevin Bacon, Julianne Moore and Marisa Tomei. However, the top three really blew this movie out of the water.
Cal is going threw a painful divorce from his wife and decides to drown his sorrows every night at a local bar. He drinks cranberry vodka's everynight and talks loudly to himself about his pain.
Jacob is the ultimate playboy. He frequents the bar as well but for a much different reason. He picks up girls and goes home with a different girl everynight.
One night Jacob decides he cannot take anymore of over hearing Cal's whinning and decides to help him get his wife back by giving him a makeover.
He cuts his hair, changes his clothes and gives him some confidence and tips on how to talk to women. It is so hilarious how these two feed off of each other.
Now ladies, if I could give you only ONE reason to see this movie here it is....
...Ryan Gosling. O----M----G! He is beautiful. Not only is his characters confidence in this movie extremely attractive, but he has a slight New Yorker accent that will make you drool. I mean if a man looked at you in a bar like this, wouldn't your heart drop?
Even though Jacob is proud of his playboy lifestyle he cannot help but fall for a girl in the bar that actually blows him off at first, Hannah. Hannah is a successful first-time lawyer who has everything going for her (except a good relationship). Jacob continues to try and ask her out but she denies him everytime. Finally after breaking up with her extremely pretentious boyfriend she heads to the bar to use Jacob as on outlet for her heartbreak. Little do they both know, they are about to fall head over heels in love with each other..
That scene in the movie is so romantic and perfect. There is Dirty Dancing reference and who doesn't love that!?
While Jacob calling Hannah his "game changer", Cal is trying to get with women to make his wife jealous. He succeeds but comes to find out he cannot live without his wife.
There are a few more plot twists, but I don't want to spoil anything because they are so funny.
I really hope you will go see this movie! It is perfect for date-night, mother/daughter, father/son, and girls night out!
And now since I went on a little too much about my celebrity husband Ryan Gosling. I will leave you with a picture of THE most handsome, loving and wonderful man in the world!
