Quick-Thoughts: Crazy, Stupid, Love. (2011)

Ryan Gosling’s body-count must be, well, uncountable. 

Crazy, Stupid, Love.: an often extremely cliché yet undeniably laugh-out-loud rom-com that weaves some noticeably amusing and unbelievable story convolutions—this is a rare exception, though, that favors the movie’s enjoyment since it leads to some frankly absurd sequences. At least, when you don’t think about them too hard. Or, if you decide to shut your brain off entirely and accept the shock-value plot for what it is. 

Yet, in reality, that’s exactly why I’ll probably forget of Crazy, Stupid, Love.’s overall composite in less than a day. There are jaw-dropping moments in this movie, sure, and the movie does its job in the comedy department successfully, but it’s all stirred together with a forgettable, unbearably pea-brained narrative and moral consensus. 

So, yeah, it’s crazy and stupid. Accurate title. Good job?

There. I finally saw and reviewed this movie. Can I go home now, The Office fanatics? I want to see my family. It’s getting cold in here. Please.

Verdict: C+

“Crazy, Stupid, Love.” is now available to stream on YouTube, Google Play, iTunes, Vudu, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and HBO Now.
