DVD: Crazy Stupid Love (12)
Friday 27 January 2012
Gosling again. This time he plays strutting, womanising Jacob, who proclaims he's a "total tomcat in the sack" to Emma Stone's lovely Hannah.
However, this film isn't really about these two, but about Cal (Steve Carell) and the disintegration of his marriage to weepy Emily (Julianne Moore). She informs him that she wants a divorce over dinner in the opening scene, before admitting that she slept with Kevin Bacon's sleazecake. So Cal retires to a pick-up joint, where he's taken pity upon by Jacob, who tells him, "I'm going to help you rediscover your manhood." Gosling and Stone are a hoot – but the finale, which clumsily rips off About a Boy, is too cloying.
