[It's] a breezy and easy-to-swallow ensemble piece about hopeless romantics and sexual predators, and the terrifying/heartwarming similarities they share. Only minimally cloying ... it's buoyed by radiant and charming performances.

With a strong cast and a willingness not to take the easy way out or the easy laughs, Crazy, Stupid, Love shines a light on the darker side of relationships without losing its heart or becoming a total cynic.

Stone and Gosling are great together; anyone want to put them together in a rom-com spin-off, you've sold one ticket right here.

Its own brand of sitcomy sickly sweetness isn't all that bad.

A modern, adult story that's both uproariously funny and touchingly real.

It's several cuts above the average romantic comedy that we've been getting lately and I've been sort of railing against those, because they're not romantic and they're not funny but this is both romantic and funny.

The timing of the comedy is great, it's a smart and talented effort that only falters slightly at the end.

In a world goofily guffawing at the likes of Horrible Bosses, The Change-Up, Johnny English Reborn and Bad Teacher, an un-stupid movie such as Crazy, Stupid, Love is conspicuously going against the flow.

Tweaking the Hollywood rom-com formula enough to seem fresh, this is smart, funny and heartfelt entertainment boosted by the charm of its terrific cast.

The burning question in this romantic comedy with a twist is whether you can believe in [Steve Carell] when he's being serious. And does he do enough to make us laugh the rest of the time?

The final half-hour undoes everything as the directors get embarrassingly serious and sentimental.

The "love" on offer in this romcom that marks yet another notch of disappointment on Steve Carrell's career is neither crazy nor stupid, just cynical and schmaltzy by turns

There's more than enough charm and good humour here to sweep you off your feet.

Crazy, Stupid, Love proves to be far smarter - and sweeter - than its contrived set-up would suggest thanks to a classy cast.
Catherine Jones
Liverpool Echo

A sophisticated romantic comedy boasting pithy dialogue and exemplary performances from a cast which explores the many winding paths to true love.

While this boasts a few laughs, it contains absolutely no surprises.

There may not be much competition, but it's among the best of the year.

It's blessed with one of the most adroit comedy scripts since Richard Curtis burst upon the romcom scene with Four Weddings And A Funeral.

It ties its strands together a touch too tightly two-thirds of the way through - but still leaves enough hanging at the end to be credible.
