In anticipation for their new romantic/comedy/drama Crazy, Stupid, Love, Warner Bros. has released three new trailers. The new trailers take footage from the movie to show you each of the elements; crazy, stupid and love. They find themselves showing a lot of new footage that we haven’t seen in previous trailers.
Crazy, Stupid, Love is directed by Glen Ficarra and John Requa, the same people who brought us the underrated I Love You Phillip Morris. It stars Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore, Emma Stone, John Carroll Lynch, Marisa Tomei, Kevin Bacon, Jonah Bobo, Analeigh Tipton, and Josh Groban.
I had the chance to see this film yesterday and upon first thoughts after the movie I wasn’t very pleased with it. However the more I think about the concept and story of the movie the more I find myself liking it. It’s not perfect by any means but it does do what it set out to do. It makes you laugh, there is the romantic side and even the major drama side. There is a lot more depth to the characters and storyline that I thought there would be. I think if they were to cut a little bit out of the first act I would have liked it a little more. The second act was hilarious.
Without further ado check out the trailers and the synopsis via Apple.
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 protege 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 (Jonah Bobo), is crazy about his 17-year-old babysitter, Jessica (Analeigh Tipton), 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.
