    What makes Crazy Stupid Love a cut above is actors who let pain seep into the laughs. Here's a comedy you really can take to heart. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Men will watch Crazy, Stupid, Love thinking they're finding out things about women, but if anything, this movie works the other way. Women will get a glimpse into the male mind. show more

    Sometimes Crazy, Stupid, Love captures the complexity, humor and sweetness of relationships. But in several scenes, the film takes that insight and replaces it with farcical coincidences and strained scenarios that undercut the poignancy and wit. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The movie also fights for what it wants - to touch us in the course of entertaining us - and it succeeds, with its zinger-studded script that transcends clumsy mechanics and a spirited cast that includes Marisa Tomei as a nymphomaniacal middle-school teacher, and Jonah Bobo as a lovesick eighth-grader. show more

    In the end, Ficarra and Requa take all the formula ingredients and blend them into a satisfying - and tasty - concoction. "A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy," meet "All's Well That Ends Well." show more

    It's hard to ignore the fact that very little in the movie feels true - no one clicks as a couple, and there are carefully contrived coincidences around every corner. show more

    The movie suffers perhaps from too many characters and subplots but all the actors appear to have fun with their characters. show more

    Grant the filmmakers the efficiency of their plotting, even if it reduces characters to types. And credit them with having assembled a cast capable of making the film's craziness and stupidity appealing, even if hitching actors of the caliber of Moore and Gosling (and to a lesser extent Carell and Stone) to material this thin is a little like hitching a Saturn rocket to a go-cart. show more

    Crazy, Stupid, Love. is, for the most part, an effective love story, but the two figures in thrall to one another aren't the ones you think: The magnetism between the movie's two male stars, Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling, is what really makes the movie tick. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    The strength of the movie, however formulaic its structure, is that it is slightly more thoughtful about its characters. It's not deep, mind you, but it considers their problems as more than fodder for comedy. show more

    This is one of those movies where everything comes together in the end and it\'s got one of the best climax scenes I\'ve seen. Reminded me of City Island.

    Kinda ironic about this movie... a. mentions Steve Jobbs and then he died a little while after b. mentions Kutcher/Moore relationship and then they broke up Just thought it was kinda funny

    Went the night of Hurricane Irene for something to do (no electricity). The other movies had already started, so chose this. Wasn\'t expecting much, pleasantly surprised. Loved it. Will watch it again when it comes to TV.
