The Cinematheque Reviews: Crazy, Stupid, Love.

The lovely little missus and I were on holiday this past week, so I was unable to see and review some of the films released during this time.  This is the first of several "catch-up" reviews that I will be sneaking, at whim, into my schedule.

The defiantly titled Crazy, Stupid, Love. is the rarest of commodities in modern Hollywood - the smartly written comedy.  Along with the screwball Horrible Bosses, this is the peak of mainstream film comedy so far this year.  Perhaps not a perfect film (no one is re-inventing the wheel here) but nonetheless a wry, intelligent comedy written for those adults with more discriminating tastes -- meaning those who don't laugh at the toilet humour and penis jokes so prevalent in today's movie comedy world.  My review of said wry, intelligent comedy is up and running over at The Cinematheque.  Read it if you so wish (and you know you do).

The surprisingly funny Ryan Gosling teaching the deadpan Steve Carrell, Mr. Miyagi-style, how to pick up women.
