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.

Well, as much as it’s

Well, as much as it’s great to not be hurt… you can’t go through life being ignorant about the failures of love. So yeah, you gotta get hurt.

It’s better to love and

It’s better to love and lose, because at least you’re left with a good deal of life experience you can draw upon. Where’s the benefit in avoiding things so you’re never hurt? It’s certainly not the type of life I want to lead.

Love or Lose

I would rather love at least than not experience this amazing feeling at all.

Is it better to love and lose or would you never love so you’re

Oh it is so much better to love and lose then to never love at all. Love is the best thing that can ever happen to anybody and only good things can happen. If you do split up it can be heartbreaking but it makes you a stronger person.

Is it better to love and lose or would you never love so you’re never hurt?

Yeah! Its good to give it a shot, and see what happens, u never know if u never try, and if u never try, u never know. so Try and see what goes. Love will happen when u least expect it.

live without regret even if it hurts

I’d rather live knowing I loved and was loved in return than live without any love. Pain and hurt is a natural feeling, even though it’s not the desired feeling,

I must agree with you 100%.

I must agree with you 100%.

Crazy stupid love so worth it

Definitely better to love and lose once in awhile because if you don’t try you might miss out on the one whose chemistry matches yours and once you find that connection not even money can compare..

Depends on the reason for the pain. I have loved and missed but would not want to take it back EVER! You learn and grow from each experience, but especially the painful ones.
