First Trailer for Crazy, Stupid, Love Starring Steve Carell and a Half-Naked Ryan Gosling
04.07.11 by Ryan
Crazy, Stupid, Love is the latest comedy where Steve Carell plays a man in his forties who finds his love life in complete upheaval. This time, however, Carell isn't a 40-Year-Old Virgin or falling for his brother's girlfriend (Dan in Real Life). Here Carell is the average family man who suddenly finds himself divorced and back on the singles scene. It's the unlikely comedic foil of Ryan Gosling who teaches Carell how to pick up women.
Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for the comedy, which will be opening in a summer filled with comic book movie adaptations, sequels, and other blockbusters. See the Crazy, Stupid, Love trailer and synopsis below.
At fortysomething, straight-laced Cal Weaver (Carell) 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 (Julianne Moore), 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 protege to handsome, thirtysomething player 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. 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 crazy about his 17-year-old babysitter, Jessica (Analeigh Tipton), who harbors a crush on Cal. And despite Cal's makeover and his many new conquests, the one thing that can't be made over is his heart, which seems to keep leading him back to where he began.
Crazy, Stupid, Love was directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (I Love You Phillip Morris) from a script by Dan Fogelman (Tangled, Fred Claus). Marisa Tomei and Emma Stone co-star.
