PUA Movie Review: Crazy, Stupid Love Review

PUA Movie Review

Legs wrapping in amorous, scintillating conversation at a candlight restaurant reveals among Steve Carell’s self directed films starring himself. Crazy Stupid Love pretty accurately describes how love is simply that, crazy and stupid. Cal Weaver (Steve Carell) jumps out of his car at first because his wife admits to cheating on him using one of her coworkers while his babysitter Jessica (Analeigh Tipton), dreams of seducing Cal from his wife (Emily Weaver, played by Julianne Moore), after she catches Cal’s son Robbie (Jonah Bobo) shaking hands with Mr. Happy, thinking of Jessica. In the first fifteen minutes, there is a painfully obvious and ridiculous love hexagon forming. Not bad for catching attention Mr. Carell! Crazy Stupid Love already looks pretty interesting!

Essentially, the whole premise, moral, and “today I learned” ordeal of Crazy, Stupid Love is simply put -

Soul mates eventually finds a means to work itself out.

While it is a show, and Hollywood must pull on whatever heart strings it needs to make money, it does a pretty good job advertising online with regards to having the audience emotionally invested into each character. There’s a certain charm to every individual, and more importantly, easily relatable and quirky flaws. Jessica has a massive crush, but doesn’t know what to do regarding it. Jacob Palmer (Ryan Gosling) is painfully unhappy with his life seducing woman after woman, and Emily Weaver still loves her husband and desires rekindling their marriage to give herself true happiness. The good thing? Most of these character motivations are portrayed without blatantly telling the audience. The subtle nature of each individual’s motives and personality are revealed through the entire movie in the tact method in which leaves you craving more. The plot is incredibly well written and it is pretty much a crazy plot twisted love story starring a colorful cast of good-hearted people.

What didn’t work out so well is the pick up techniques used by Jacob Palmer, and just how he makes seduction look almost effortless. In Jacob’s case, it is a painfully simple endeavor as a result of his tall appearance and eight pack abdominals which were quoted as though “they look like they’ve been Photoshopped.” It seems like almost unbelievable that Jacob’s secret “dating fu” powers work for Cal, a mature and much less limber matured gentlemen to head in the market to a bar and use the exact same seduction techniques as utilized by Jacob. Oh, and i really like that Jacob is played by heartthrob Ryan Gosling? Surely because beautiful doesn’t play at all with how easy it is to grab chicks (/sarcasm)… Inside the movie, Cal learns the art of seduction from Jacob, as well as his first one night stand, he adds his or her own personal flavor and special touches that keep Cal the same oddball character he remains through the entire film. If Cal didn’t show his dorky, sincere, and honest side through the pick up, it could are making the film much less believable.

From a pick up standpoint, Jacob Palmer definitely gets the suave coolness and Alpha behavior that girls are certainly sexually charmed and drawn to. It may be borderline on “too cool for school,” and “hedonistic asshole,” to actually get a woman, but there’s already way too many beta boys out there that need a job model along these lines. Is he a good role model for seduction students? Inside the alpha and assured way, yes, although not a great deal in the sincerity category. Take what he states and does having a grain of salt.

Love is incredibly romanticized and played off as something to battle for in the film, and it is mainly portrayed through Cal’s son Robbie, while he first believes for each other, pursues it, then loses interest by the end. Like all silly romantic movies, there’s the cliché, “Give some crazy long monologue to create everything better and alter the perspective of virtually every major character inside the film to create a happy ending for everyone!” that’s grotesquely slammed in your face within the final Thirty minutes from the movie. Yes, it’s a cliché, but a minimum of the 13 year old gets the babysitter’s nude pictures. Yes, love is romanticized to what movies typically do, but what instruction is there to understand using this? How should we improve ourselves as men from this cinematic overly obvious display of the “true love” is supposed to be?

The premise and overall moral of the story is, “true love eventually finds a way to work itself out,” as well as in this situation, it can exercise regardless of who features a crush on who, or who cheated on who, or like in the movie, who’s daughter exactly are you dating? It’s a crazy rush and comically action packed experience, however the moral of the story still stands. “True love eventually finds a way to work itself out.” It’s even produced in the title, Crazy Stupid Love. Unfortunately, the finish is created through a cheesy or painful cliché that’s already within 90% of romantic comedies (long monologues go! While you’re advertising online monologue, fix everyone’s problems!) and it kind of kills the moral of the story (that’s crammed down your throat).

However, the sexual humor from the film is incredibly hilarious, and totally i'm all over this. When Jacob’s cute redhead is told to obtain slammed into the headboard until she sees the face area of god and discovering the subtle curvature of his c***, it couldn’t have been at a better time and place within the film. Perhaps the slapstick humor is great, like when Cal jumps out of a moving vehicle, or when Jessica’s father rips the wooden fan of your windmill off and away to lay the smack down (WWE style!) down the road in the well scripted and purely hilarious scene at the movie’s climax, the humor is side splitting funny for the bone, each moment was well considered about the storyboard.

PUA Movie Review

Romantic comedies like 50 First Dates or My Boss’s Daughter are only filled to the brim with ridiculous situations and corny, “Everything will probably work out perfectly!” cliches, but there’s nothing like good old slapstick and sexual humor to cuddle on top of on date night using a gorgeous babe. If you’re inside the mood for any chick flick that you could tolerate as a man who likes humor, action, the ones getting hurt, then Crazy Stupid Love is simply for you. But if you can’t stand terrible cliches that wind up fixing everything that went wrong, then stay far far away. You want a good date movie? Crazy Stupid Love is the perfect choice, but stick to 300 or Captain America if you’re drinking beer with the bros.
