Crazy, Stupid, Love. (2011)
Romantic comedies aren’t really my cup of tea, but with a cast like this it was hard to pass up this movie. Late last night, my best friend and I decided to go to the movies, and I immediately knew that this is what I wanted to see. At the beginning, I wasn’t really digging it because it just seemed like normal Steve Carell-type of humor, but as the movie progressed and the plot became more clear, it turned out to be a wonderful movie. My favorite part about it was Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone’s story-line; I thought they were absolutely adorable together. At first glance, I wouldn’t necessarily cast them together, but they actually had great chemistry together. Now the ending is what made this movie stand out for me. I won’t give it away, but it is sort of shocking and fun, and completely comes out of no where. What I like about this particular film is that it has the characteristics of a normal romantic comedy, but the directing and the acting sort of sets it apart from all the others. It’s a must-see, there’s no doubt about it.
