Crazy, Stupid, Love. (2011) 5/5
I will never stop trying. Because when you find the one... you never give up.
I had heard a lot of good things about this movie and, being a big fan of its stars (especially one Julianne Moore), I fully expected to enjoy myself. I had no idea it would be able to blow me away as much as it did. I expected an above-average take on the middle age infidelity and rediscovery film. I simply wasn't prepared for what a got: a parable extolling the virtues of true love. The comedy flows freely because of the familiarity of the characters and their struggles. I find it strange that "Bridesmaids" is getting more critical love this awards season (and will probably win best comedy tomorrow night) because its comedy is derived from characters acting in completely unrealistic ways.
