Maybe it's the shortage of rom-coms this summer, maybe it's the Love, Actually–like ensemble cast, but Crazy, Stupid, Love seems to be exceeding expectations.

"...the perfect combination of sexy, cute, wise, hilarious, and true."— Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Between the writing, acting, directing and the rest, it works. Not crazy, not stupid, and filled with love. Period."— Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times
"...there's a fresh, insightful feel to this multigenerational love story..."— Peter Debruge, Variety
"...remarkably sane and reasonably smart."— A. O. Scott, New York Times
"What makes Crazy Stupid Love a cut above is actors who let pain seep into the laughs. Here’s a comedy you really can take to heart."— Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
" ...tamer and less inventive than the directors' demented and exciting debut, I Love You Phillip Morris..."— Chris Cabin, filmcritic.com
Back in 2006, Tina Fey made an appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart to promote her show, 30 Rock. During the course of the interview Fey and Stewart mentioned both Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell, two former Daily Show correspondents, and Fey made the statement "one of the two, and I will not say which one, was a notorious ladies' man."
So which Steve was it? After a recent press junket for the upcoming Crazy, Stupid, Love we might have the answer. While sitting down with our own Patrick Stinson, it looks like Carell kind of let the cat out of the bag. Watch the interview >> Posted 07.27.11 by Mandy

Universal Studios has set the release dates on three of its high-profile projects. While the good news is that these movies are definitely getting made without forcing a director to rush to a release date, the bad news is that we have to wait some time for them.
Arriving first is director Oliver Stone's adaptation of Savages, based on the novel by Don Winslow. The drama features an all-star cast that includes Taylor Kitsch (X-Men Origins: Wolverine), Aaron Johnson (Kick-Ass), Benicio Del Toro (The Wolfman), Salma Hayek (Grown Ups), Blake Lively (Green Lantern), John Travolta, and Uma Thurman. The story involves Kitsch and Johnson as two pot dealers who have their girlfriend (Lively) kidnapped by a Mexican drug cartel and have to find a way to pay the ransom. Savages opens on September 28, 2012. when will we get Despicable Me 2 and Horizons/Oblivion? Posted 06.17.11 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.

Two hilarious new clips are out for director Jay Roach's (Meet the Fockers) latest comedy, Dinner for Schmucks. A remake of the French movie The Dinner Game, Schmucks follows Tim Wagner (Paul Rudd), a young executive who hopes to rise in the ranks by winning his boss' monthly dinner party contest, where the winner is the executive who brings the biggest loser with him as his dinner guest. Tim thinks he has found the perfect "schmuck" in sad-sack IRS agent Barry (Steve Carell) and attempts to earn his friendship so that Barry will accompany him to the party. watch both clips >> Posted 07.24.10 by BrentJS
This July could be called "Steve Carell month" considering the actor appears in two movies opening in four weeks: the currently playing Despicable Me, where Carell supplies the voice for supervillain Gru, and Dinner for Schmucks, which opens July 30, and finds Carell as Barry, an unintelligent man brought to an "idiot-off" dinner party by Paul Rudd. Director Jay Roach talked to Filmcritic about his "dream team" comedy ensemble for Schmucks, which includes Zach Galifianakis, Jemaine Clement, and Ron Livingston. Roach agreed that Carell could be considered the "LeBron James" of the group. Schmucks cast a slam dunk for Roach >> Posted 07.20.10 by Ryan
July's first big question (Which country will win the World Cup?) has already been answered, leaving us to ponder the second: Can two Steve Carell movies successfully open in the same month? With Despicable Me currently playing in theaters and already winning the top spot at the box office, Carell's other July movie, Dinner for Schmucks, hopes for similar success on July 30 ... and so the promotional clips keep coming. It's "back, schmack" in the latest clip >> Posted 07.13.10 by Ryan
Hot on the heels of the first clip from Dinner for Schmucks, the studio has released a second. In the movie, Tim Wagner (Paul Rudd) is a young executive who will do anything to climb the corporate ladder, including participating in his boss' monthly dinner party, at which the employees compete by bringing the biggest "schmuck" they can find to be their dinner guest. Here, Tim gets the third degree from Therman (Zach Galifianakis), an overzealous IRS employee and co-worker of Tim's chosen schmuck, Barry (Steve Carell). Posted 07.11.10 by BrentJS
