“Crazy, Stupid, Love” (2011) is a treatise about never giving up on your perceived soulmate (in real life, that kinda stuff results in restraining orders). It doesn’t make you think too much (unless you want to). It’s stupid, funny and uneven, yet it’s also a nice movie that made me feel happy. There’s something to be said for that. The plot is a Shakespearean knot of interconnected relationships. The music was nice. I would probably pay to watch Julianne Moore and/or Emma Stone spend two hours checking their email. Steve Carell plays himself (he usually does). Ryan Gosling seems nice.
