The title for this new comedy Crazy Stupid Love is still up in the air, it may end up being called that, it may not. What we do know is that the film has attracted a great amount of talent such as Steve Carrell, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Julianne Moore and most recently former ice skater and model who took third place on America’s Top Model, Analeigh Tipton. So of course her next step is to move into acting. But can she act? I guess we’ll find out, she also has a key supporting role in the upcoming Green Hornet film.
According to the The Playlist the film is about long time married couple Cal (Carrell) and Tracy (Moore), who decide to divorce when Tracy confesses to having an affair with a colleague, exiling Cal into "the most depressing apartment you've ever seen... It looks as if the color beige threw up, everywhere," and sending him into something of a tailspin. While pouring his heart out in a bar, he meets Jacob (Gosling, whose part is interestingly written for a man in his early 40s), a super cool ladykiller, who takes pity on Cal, and offers to teach him how to "rediscover his manhood," transforming him into a trendy lothario, although all Cal wants is to win his wife back. Their 13-year-old son Robbie is in love with his babysitter Jessica (Tipton), who awkwardly walks in on him masturbating to a photo of her in an early scene. Unfortunately, Jessica is nursing a major crush on Cal. Meanwhile, Hannah (Stone), a twentysomething on the verge of passing the bar exam, and who rebuffs Jacob's advances early on, is growing increasingly dissatisfied with her dull boyfriend. She does tie into the story more closely than it might seem, but exactly how is revealed in a deftly-handled third act twist.
This definitely sounds like it’s going to be a great ensemble story, full of laughs with a mixture of truth and emotion. The film is being directed by John Requa and Glen Ficarra (I Love you Philip Morris). So here’s hoping to a good movie!
