Crazy, Stupid, Love

I am not a huge Steve Carell fan. Most of his movies are too over the top for me so I wasn't planning on seeing Crazy, Stupid, Love. But I kept seeing commercials and reading good reviews for it so I decided to give it a shot even though he's one of the stars in it. I am so glad that I did. I loved this movie! It's a romantic comedy but it's not the typical cheesy rom-com. It is sweet and funny and heartfelt. The humor wasn't too over the top, which made me very happy. Steve's role reminded me a lot of his role in Dan in Real Life- not because their characters are the same but they do both show the same kind of vulnerability. Many of my friends commented on how hot Ryan Gosling is in the movie and it's very true but I found myself loving Steve Carell's character more. I've also decided that I adore Emma Stone. She's fabulous in everything I've ever seen her in, including this.
