This well-cast comedy easily stands high above many of the romantic comedies we've seen in recent years.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
This is a movie with a bigger heart than a brain. As frustrating as it can be, still, there are worse offenses.
| Original Score: B
Crazy, Stupid, Love has several humorous spots and is filled with good performances from the entire cast.
| Original Score: 6/10
Steve Carell, with Ryan Gosling as his wing man? Go figure.
| Original Score: 3/4
It'll make you laugh, it'll make you'll frown, it might even make you cry, but mostly it'll just make you want to have sex with Ryan Gosling.
| Original Score: 4/5
While "Crazy, Stupid, Love" does have several funny parts, it was rather hard to shake the feeling that the film was too drawn out for the story it was trying to tell.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
I laughed and I cried in this happy, crazy and spectacularly funny film that is one of the most enjoyable of the year.
The deft balance between humor and more earnest matters of the heart makes for the best of both worlds.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
The affable atmosphere is perpetuated by the consistently engaging nature of Fogelman's screenplay...
Competent and smart, 'Crazy, Stupid, Love' is anything but. Because it features an ensemble of people who can't quite get love straight, it reminds me a little of 'Love, Actually.'
If you're hungry for a romantic comedy that's really entertaining and doesn't insult your intelligence, here it is.
The characters and their predicaments rather grow on you. Silly? Yeah, a little. Touching? Yeah, a lot.
Preposterous at times, but smart and heartfelt too.
| Original Score: B+
Steve Carell sets aside his goofball schtick for a more earthy role in this satisfying, mature ensemble romantic dramedy.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
All of the characters - with the exception of Marisa Tomei's horribly maligned love interest - feel entirely honest
In terms of writing and direction it has an almost indie-film feel to it, but with that Hollywood gloss to make it palatable to mainstream viewers.
| Original Score: 5/5
Crazy, Stupid, Love sees directors John Requa and Glenn Ficarra very quickly building a name for themselves, able to again craft an honest film that, up until the very end, flows naturally and with great confidence.
These characters reflect no people that I've ever met. They're as crazy and stupid as the title suggests.
| Original Score: C+
While far from a landmark effort in the careers of anyone involved, there is more than enough heart and humour in Crazy, Stupid, Love to make it worthwhile.
| Original Score: 3/5
This film can only have been written by someone who has been both crazy with passion and has been to a parent-teacher night. Recommended.
