Feature Film Review

‘Crazy Stupid Love’ directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa. It is written by Dan Fogelman. It stars Steve Carrell, Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore, Emma Stone, Analeigh Tipton, Jonah Bobo, Joey King, Marisa Tomei and Kevin Bacon.

At forty-something, straight-laced Cal Weaver 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, 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, thirty-something player Jacob Palmer. Source: Warner Bros.

Lists of Five

This week our Lists of Five: Five of the Most Quotable Films. Find yourself randomly quoting films for no apparent reason, so do we and these are some of the films that did this to us.
Just a reminder, because we never like to just make things easy on ourselves, our lists are not necessarily top five lists, they are more or a less a list of film recommendations within the theme of the list.
