Steve Carell returns to the big screen this September as fortysomething, straight-laced Cal Weaver who thinks he’s living the dream – until he discovers his wife, Emily (Julianne Moore), has cheated on him and wants a divorce.
As his “perfect” life quickly unravels Cal, who hasn’t dated in decades, stands out as the epitome of un-smooth.
Now spending his free evenings sulking alone at a local bar, the hapless Cal is taken on as wingman and protégé to handsome, thirtysomething player Jacob Palmer (Ryan Gosling).
In an effort to help Cal get over his wife and start living his life, Jacob opens Cal’s eyes to the many options before him: flirty women, manly drinks and a sense of style that can’t be found at Supercuts or The Gap.
Cal and Emily aren’t the only ones looking for love in what might be all the wrong places: Cal’s 13-year-old son, Robbie, is crazy about his 17-year-old babysitter, Jessica, who harbors a crush on Cal.
And despite Cal’s makeover and his many new conquests, the one thing that can’t be made over is his heart, which seems to keep leading him back to where he began.
Crazy, Stupid, Love is set for UK release on 2nd September 2011 from Warner Bros. Pictures
