I must be getting soft in my old age, I’m actually looking forward to seeing this one CRAZY STUPID LOVE and today Warner Bros have released the second theatrical trailer. This movie has a star studded cast Steve Carrell, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Julianne Moore, Kevin Bacon, Josh Grobin and Marisa Tomei but when the cast is usually like this movies it seems to be generic, very predictable (Valentine’s Day anyone?) as well as a movie to avoid. The movie is directed by John Requa , Glenn Ficarra the duo behind Bad Santa“and I Love You Phillip Morris is probably why this movie is looking a attractive prospect giving the movie a mix of the romcom style humour with the naughty darker edge of the directors previous movies.
CRAZY STUPID LOVE will be out in UK & Ireland on September 23rd.
*update* 2 New Internet trailers were also launched today for the film check them out below as they do have some new footage included.
At fortysomething, straight-laced Cal Weaver (Steve Carell) is living the dream—good job, nice house, great kids and marriage to his high school sweetheart. But when Cal learns that his wife, Emily (Julianne Moore), has cheated on him and wants a divorce, his “perfect” life quickly unravels. Worse, in today’s single world, Cal, who hasn’t dated in decades, stands out as the epitome of un-smooth.
Now spending his free evenings sulking alone at a local bar, the hapless Cal is taken on as wingman and protégé to handsome, thirtysomething player Jacob Palmer (Ryan Gosling). In an effort to help Cal get over his wife and start living his life, Jacob opens Cal’s eyes to the many options before him: flirty women, manly drinks and a sense of style that can’t be found at Supercuts or The Gap.
Cal and Emily aren’t the only ones looking for love in what might be all the wrong places: Cal’s 13-year-old son, Robbie, is crazy about his 17-year-old babysitter, Jessica, who harbors a crush on Cal. And 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 him back to where he began.
