If you have not been to see Crazy, Stupid, Love... RUN! Go see it, ASAP!! I knew it was supposed to be really good & that it had a bunch of great reviews but seriously, it's one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. The cast is amazing! Steve Carell is hilarious & heartbreaking. Julianne Moore is gorgeous! Emma Stone is her usual cute, charming self. (& I'm now coming out & admitting my huge girl crush I have on her!) Marisa Tomei is hilariously crazy. Kevin Bacon isn't in it too much but he does a great job. Plus, he can now add a million more people to "6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon". AND RYAN GOSLING... HOLY MOTHER!! I honestly think that even if the movie sucked, (which it doesn't!) just watching Ryan Gosling w/ his shirt off for 2 hours would've been well worth it. Oh, & the kids in it are all great. I mean, I don't know if there's ever been an ensemble cast like this one. Honestly, I can't say enough good stuff about this movie. And the added twist that comes in about half through makes it even better. They throw it at you at the perfect time! You'll walk out of Crazy, Stupid, Love w/ a huge smile on your face. With all of the crazy ass stuff going on in the world right now, it was so nice to escape reality for 2 hours w/ this amazing cast. Another thing I personally enjoyed about the movie was the music. I haven't checked it out yet but it has to have a killer soundtrack. Then again, my taste in music seems to be an acquired taste, especially where I live. My friends don't know who half the people I listen to are. Of course, when people talk to me about a lot of the singers who are on the radio now, I don't know who quite a few of them are. I seriously never listen to the radio. (I'm never w/out my mp3 player! It's even been to the hospital w/ me.) Anyway, I knew I'd end up liking this movie the first time I heard the name of it. I don't think anyone who's ever been in love can't NOT relate to the title. Let's face it, love is crazy. It makes us act crazy, it makes us do crazy stuff that we swore we'd never do, & of course, God knows, it makes you do STUPID things. Speaking of God, I'd like to take a moment & thank Him for creating men like Ryan Gosling. I'd also like to ask Him to send a man like that my way. AMEN!
I am a VERY lucky survivor of meningococcal disease. I contracted it in June of 2001. I was in a coma for 6 weeks & for the 1st week, my Dr.s weren't expecting me to survive. If you haven't been vaccinated for it, DO IT! You have no clue how fast meningococcal disease can destroy your body & your life! Within 48 hours of contracting it, I was in a coma on full life support! I have been in & out of hospitals ever since. I've had at least 30 surgeries due to complications from the disease.
