I really enjoyed this well constructed movie. Steve Carell did a masterful job of mixing subtle humor and drama - his is a very likable character. Julianne Moore once again proves herself to be a great "Mom" - she is very believable in this role. I would have rated it higher but their son in the movie got on my nerves - he was annoying, not cute and not believalbe as their son. His role was given too much weight.
Ryan Gosling is wonderful as the womanizer - both in the "looks" department and acting skills.
I enjoyed the mix of humor and drama in this movie and the interrelationships between the various characters - there are a few twists in the plot!
