Crazy Stupid Love is one of those typical modern day romance movies, its not all about boy meets girl, they fight but in the end they get back together. No, its much more real than that, the kind of romantic havoic that happens to many of the less fortunate.
Steve Carrell is once again proving that he is master of comedy. He's known for a lot of his over the top stupid characters, but in this one he pulls off a more down to earth and dry comedy, much like Little Miss Sunshine. There's plenty of laughs, but also he gets you where it hurts most, in the heart. His performance is genuine and real, it's stupid and times but for the most part is heartwrenching.
The story is well written, it starts off a bit dull and seems like its not going to be all that good, but as it moves on it gets better and better. It gets funnier as it goes on, and gets even more touching at the same time.
Overall: This is a winner, its a good rom-com, perhaps heavier on the romance than the comedy, but still it's got all the ingredients to make you laugh and make you cry.
