CBS News
Carell plays the conflicted husband aptly – with a mix of emotion and slight contempt, but also as a man who still loves the woman he calls his “soul mate.” Gosling and Stone turn in strong performances and Robbie and his crush Jennifer help form the perfect arch, creating three generations of mixed-up couples, all trying to figure out what love’s got to do with it.

Carell, who has the market cornered for playing schnooks — his best movie performance remains Dan in Real Life, however — finds something new here by suggesting that there can be worse things than being a schnook. Gosling keeps it real yet amusingly satirizes his screen lothario character.

Crazy, Stupid, Love. is, for once, a very satisfying romantic comedy, even if it doesn’t try to tell a story as if we never seen anything like it. But hell, please give us more of this instead of crap like Just Go With It, Something Borrowed, The Dilemma, and even the upcoming What’s Your Number (watch the trailer, or just read the synopsis, you know how it ends). Studios, we don’t need corny-ass romantic comedies just so we can feel lightheaded and tingly right after seeing them. Then again, they keep making money…
