Okay, so sure, this is a bullshit romantic comedy where people say weepy garbage like “I think we got so caught up in being me and you that we forgot that what makes me and you we is that we is us and I just want our US BACK!” But Crazy, Stupid, Love is ALSO one of those movies where a hot person gives a frumpy person a makeover so the frumpy person can then have intercourse (perversely satisfying every time), AND it builds to an ensemble-cast climax so gleefully farcical and genuinely surprising that I actually wrote the word “Shakespearean” in my fucking notes. AND I MEANT IT. Feel free to skip the endless denouement because it is doo-doo. (See Movie Times)
