Movie Review: CRAZY, STUPID, LOVE

CRAZY STUPID LOVE movie poster

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore, Emma Stone, Jonah Bobo, John Carroll Lynch, Marisa Tomei, Kevin Bacon Writer: Dan Fogelman Directors: Glenn Ficarra & John Fuqua Distributor: Warner Bros.

However, the film bogs down in its details (and lack thereof) and the growing realization that we don’t particularly like or believe in any of the characters. […]Read On »
