Here is the plot description for “Crazy, Stupid, Love.”:
At 40 something, straight-laced Cal Weaver (Steve Carell) is living the dream: a 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.
In today’s single world, Cal – who hasn’t dated in decades – stands out as the epitome of unsmooth. Spending his free evenings sulking alone at a local bar, the hapless Cal is taken on as wingman and protégé to handsome lothario 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.
But 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 in love with his 17-year-old babysitter, Jessica (Analeigh Tipton), who harbors a major crush of her own… on Cal.
And even Jacob’s new-woman-every-night modus operandi is challenged when he tries his best lines on Hannah (Emma Stone): a girl he just can’t seem to get out of his mind perhaps because she’s the first woman he’s ever met who doesn’t think this professional player has any game.
The movie trailer for “Crazy, Stupid, Love.” can be watched now below.
