Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and that can only mean one thing... it's Theater Thursday! This week's featured movie is, Crazy Stupid Love
Crazy Stupid Love stars Steve Carell as Cal, a family man who now finds himself getting a divorce. When his wife (Julianne Moore) confesses that she slept with her co-worker David (Kevin Bacon), Cal packs up and moves out. Once he's out on his own he's depressed and doesn't know what to do now that his soulmate is no longer by his side. When he finds himself sitting in a bar a younger guy decides to take him under his wing. 

Jacob (Ryan Gosling) sees something in Cal that makes him want to help him. He takes him shopping  and shows him how to dress then starts trying to teach him how to talk to women. What Jacob himself is starting realize is that he's lonely just like Cal. When a girl walks into the bar and won't fall for his usual ways, she sticks out in his mind. When she walks back into his life he's surprised and who faces him in his future. It could be a pleasant surprise or a shocking twist...

I was pretty leery of watching this movie. I know I'm probably one of only a few but I am not a big fan of Steve Carell or Julianne Moore. That had stopped me from watching this movie for a long time. I'm glad I finally did watch it though! I'm always a big fan of Emma Stone and now I kinda see why everyone talks about Ryan Gosling! If you haven't seen this movie... watch it. It's funny, heart warming and entertaining.
