Crazy, Stupid, Love
Time Out says
Unfortunately, the rest of the movie is a mess. This is one of those literate, star-stuffed family comedies of which Hollywood is fond at the moment – think a more phallocentric ‘The Kids Are Alright’. Steve Carell (pictured left) splits from wife Julianne Moore when she has an affair with Kevin Bacon, leading Carell to pal up with Gosling for a ‘Hitch’-style character reinvention.
Directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa rose to prominence with the script for scabrous Christmas classic ‘Bad Santa’, but they’ve fallen hard here: this is witless, saccharine and lifeless – all except for that one, glorious scene.
