Crazy, Stupid, Love...Available Now!

I have a new addition to my top 10 movies of all time...Crazy, Stupid, Love.  This movie is crazy, wonderful and I actually wanted to watch it over again immediately after it finished!  Here is the scoop...

Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling lead an all-star cast in Crazy, Stupid, Love. Fortysomething straight-laced Cal Weaver (Carell) is living the dream—good job, nice house, great kids and marriage to his high school sweetheart, Emily (Julianne Moore). So when Cal learns that his wife has cheated on him and wants a divorce, his “perfect” life quickly unravels. Cal, who hasn't dated in decades, stands out as the epitome of un-smooth so handsome player Jacob Palmer (Gosling) takes him on as wingman and protégé, opening Cal’s eyes to the many options before him: flirty women, manly drinks and a sense of style. 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 Cal back to where he began. Brimming with inspired performances, critics are calling this gem of a romantic comedy “a movie that understands love” (Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly).

Steve Carrell (who I loved in The Office) is just perfect in this role.  He is an "every guy" that you find your self rooting for.  The whole cast is actually great and all the side stories are just as engrossing as the main one.  What has me loving this movie is the love stories.  This movie shows raw emotion and the power of love...it had me laughing and crying and I really just can't recommend it enough!  Pick up a copy today on Amazon...
