This is why Dan Fogelman is exactly what the industry needs. Smart but accessible. That said, the tone of this trailer is a bit too sappy, it should have highlighted more of what is some very funny comedy in the script. Think the song was a poor choice.
Yeah, this really wasn’t the most effective trailer. In fact, it somewhat turned me off to the project.
original at least but Steve Carroll is one note.
Can’t wait to see it! Curious to see if Ryan and Emma Stone have chemistry. Potential to be a good date movie!
Gosling can do anything.
Last time this concept was called “Hitch”….
LOL Was thinking the exact same thing as I watched it. That said, I love all the actors in it, pretty much, and it looks fun, so I’ll take a look see.
i cannot wait to see this! looks really good. and i love every single one of the actors in it.
One of the few scripts I’ve read lately that I actually enjoyed. I took issue with a particular major plot point though and am very curious to see how people react to it. But what do I know. Fogelman’s a great writer and I’m a punk on the internet.
This is what the industry needs?? This looks like garbage, and Will Smith did a better version of this movie already. Way too corny.
Emma stone also looks 13 compared to Gosling.
Fogelman is a fantastic writer. Can’t wait to see CSL and his career sky rocket.
“Crazy Stupid Love” has 2 problems: Steve Carell & J Moore.
Carell can’t play romantic comedy-or romantic anything. He’s a boring, sexless, sparkless, one-note actor, only good for TV.
On the big screen, Carell falls flatter than his dialog.
And Julianne Moore is OK as an older woman seeking love-though she has zero sex appeal to anyone under 40.
But Steve & Julianne as a couple? Zero sex appeal, zero interest.
Nobody under 30 will pay good money to watch old people in a “romantic comedy”.
Emma & the other guy are OK, but so what.
Warner’s trying to ride Steve Carell’s nonexistent post-Office buzz.
Too bad Steve can’t open a movie since “40 Year Old Virgin”.
Remember “Date Night”, another bomb. Same miscasting of sexless male & female leads. Tina Fey with ZERO sexual chemistry, and one-note boring Steve Carell trying to act like a couple. Bomb from the get go.
“Crazy Stupid Love” does, though, feature the perfect couple to represent most relationships: Two boring, sexually frustrated, middle-aged, people trying to “work” at their relationship as if it’s an humorless sitcom.
The fact that you call Ryan Gosling “The other guy” shows that you’re obviously well informed
Um, DATE NIGHT wasn’t a “bomb”, you moron. It made $100 million!! I saw the movie in the theater and I didn’t love it but that’s neither here nor there — $100 domestic box office is NEVER considered a bomb, and especially on a movie whose production costs were so low (no digital effects, etc.)
Guess what, people over 30 DO go to the movies. Who do you think went and saw something like TRUE GRIT? It certainly wasn’t my 17 year old neighbor who made that movie a box office success.
Honestly, you should have to know something about this business to post on this website or at least READ.
Julianne Moore has zero sex appeal? I’d give my left nut for some naked time with her, and then right before she left, I’d pull out the right and slap it down on the table for a little more time. I’m under thirty. She’s a sexy, sexy woman.
You my friend, are waaaaaaay off.
lol you might be gay if you’re that desperate to sleep with an old woman who never had it to begin with
@ Waiting: you gotta admit though, Red’s comment was pretty funny.
A bomb? Date Night made like 100 million didn’t it? But whatever, you’re a friggin soothsayer.
Speak for yourself “jas”… I’m 25 and Julianne Moore is super-hot. In terms of actresses in their forties, it’s her, Diane Lane, and Marisa Tomei.
But guess what? It’s moot point, because they’re not trying to make her appeal to a younger audience. They have Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone for that.
Your complaints are borderline nonsense.
I agree with Jas. Middle-aged people suck. Now please forgive me so I can go back to ogling the young boys and girls from Prom and Twilight. (Typed with my left hand on an iPhone.)
This actually looks great
I agree! This movie looks really great. Funny and smart. I’m excited to see this movie. And I think this movie is going to do great things for Ryan Gosling’s career.
this movie looks awesome. and im a guy. i’m gonna ask my gf to go with me
i usually on post negative comments (cause i love to), but this looks great!!
hitch for white people?
Hitch WAS for white people, silly. Everyone knows that Will Smith is the one black guy even the Bible Belt will pay for.
Hitch made over $300 mil worldwide…I think it’s fair to say that a “few” white people saw it… Also didn’t know Hitch was targeted for a specific audience – black people I’m guessing? News to me!
Right, because I hear that William Smith character only appeals to the urban audiences.
Finally something I want to see!!!!
Fuck me, I love Ryan Gosling.
He really is one of the best actors of this generation. While I love to see him in films like THE BELIEVER and BLUE VALENTINE where his talent truly shines, like THE NOTEBOOK – CRAZY STUPID LOVE was a very intelligent move to make. This is going to introduce him even more to a general audience. Then he can be like Clooney and Pitt and do a big studio movie every now and then, then go off and make his BLUE VALENTINE Oscar worthy films.
Go Ryan, you have some good reps on your side! And/or you are just very smart yourself… don’t to the LOGAN’S RUN remake though – come on dude, seriously, there has got to be better studio projects that you can make your payday on.
Glossy, commercial, body makeup-wearing Ryan Gosling confuses and infuriates me.
Young Hercules, dude. Who could diss Young Hercules?
that was a pretty good movie. i think. i guess i can fill in the small details when i see it on hbo next year.
read the script last year…definitely a different tone in the rewrite.
sign me the fuck up.
Yawn. This looks like it’s made from bits and pieces of every other movie in its genre. I’m sure this will do REAL well among the summer blockbusters. Next..
Ryan Gosling should be the next Bourne… NO QUESTION! I can see him kicking-ass in a crowded prison scene in Prague as I type and fantasize.
Crossing my fingers you are right.
Julianne Moore is hot for her age, and Emma Stone…yum-my. Can’t wait.
Agree with previous commenters.. This is “Hitch” for White People. And is anyone convinced that Emma Stone is not, and will never be a movie star?
re: Emma Stone
Nope, I think you’re the only one, Luke. She’s hot, totally doable, and can act as well with comedic timing, shown in SUPERBAD and EASY A, as well as lesser films like ZOMBIELAND.
She’s going to be the next big thing. A smart hot intelligent chick who can act.
Agreed. Emma Stone will be around for some time.
She opened Easy A on her name alone. Doesn’t that already technically make her a movie star? Or do you need three or something?
