Ryan Gosling Teaches Steve Carell the Art of the Pickup in ‘Crazy, Stupid, Love.’

By  | 

Poor Cal (Steve Carell). He thinks he has the perfect marriage, only to discover that his wife Emily (Julianne Moore) cheated on him. In desperation, he turns to oversexed, overconfident, always successful pickup artist Jacob Palmer (Ryan Gosling) for some tips to get his love life back on track. At the same time, Jacob finds himself out of his element when he falls for the no-frills Hannah (Emma Stone). Crazy, Stupid, Love. looks like an excellent ensemble romantic comedy, and now you can see the first full-length trailer.

This looks like the rare movie that can drop recent references (Twilight, Photoshop) that sound natural rather than cheesy. And maybe the inclusion of Muse's “Starlight” has us feeling a little tender-hearted. OK, a lot.
