Crazy Stupid Love Review

A middle-aged husband's life changes dramatically when his wife asks him for a divorce. He seeks to rediscover his manhood with the help of a new-found friend Jacob, learning to pick up girls at bars. Cal successfully reenters the dating scene, but despite Cal's makeover and his many new conquests, the one thing that can't be made over is his heart, which seems to keep leading him back to where he began.

This  isn't your traditional romantic comedy. The movie begins with Julianne Moore telling Steve Carrell (Cal), her husband of almost 25 years, that she wants a divorce.   Cal is at a loss and has no where to turn and ends up a the same bar, night after night. At this bar Cal meets Jacob, a young man that seems to know how to smooth talk the ladies!  Jacob (Gosling) spends weeks taking Cal under his wings and tutoring him in the ways of women!  

Meanwhile, Carrell and Moore's 13 year old son has a crush on his cute 17-year old baby sitter. She however, isn't returning his love, because she has a crush on an older man, namely Carrell. Gosling, meanwhile, may have met his match with the spirited Emma Stone (a young law student). These two share real sparks that intensify and deepen as the movie delves further into their bond.

The movie is really good because of the strong cast. Each plays their part perfectly and there are lot of laughs. I am usually not a fan of movies that have affairs/divorces, but with the twists at the end make it!
This is the perfect adult comedy
