Review Crazy, Stupid, Love
The screenplay for Glenn Ficarra and John Requa’s film Crazy Stupid Love written by Dan Fogelman, who also directed the film. The difficulties of three generations of individuals to understand the complex dynamics of love and the riddles of sexual politics explored in this quirky drama, one of the best screen comedies of 2011. This comedy distinguishes out from the sea of Hollywood productions in this category because of the outstandingly vulnerable and emotionally profound performances by Steve Carell, Julianne Moore, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Jonah Bobo, and Analeigh Tipton.
All of these relationships are resolved in Crazy Stupid Love’s concluding chapters with some heartwarming surprises. The ending of the screenplay nearly seems to have lifted directly from William Shakespeare’s joyous Much Ado About Nothing, where love prevails despite all the deceit and misunderstandings and sends us on our way in joy!
