"Crazy, Stupid, Love." is a movie starring Steve Carell as Cal Weaver, a fortysomething, straight-laced man who is living the dream—good job, nice house, great kids and marriage to his high school sweetheart. But when Cal learns that his wife, Emily (Julianne Moore), has cheated on him and wants a divorce, his "perfect" life quickly unravels.

In today's single world, Cal, who hasn't dated in decades, stands out as the epitome of un-smooth. Spending his free evenings sulking alone at a local bar, the hapless Cal is taken on as wingman and protégé to handsome lothario 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 (Jonah Bobo), is in love with his 17-year-old babysitter, Jessica (Analeigh Tipton), who harbors a major crush of her own…on Cal.

And even Jacob's new-woman-every-night modus operandi is challenged when he tries his best lines on Hannah (Emma Stone), a girl he just can't seem to get out of his mind—maybe because she's the first woman he's ever met who doesn't think this professional player has any game.

Glenn Ficarra and John Requa directed "Crazy, Stupid, Love." from a screenplay by Dan Fogelman. The film is produced by Steve Carell and Denise Di Novi, and stars Carell, Oscar nominee Ryan Gosling ("Half Nelson"), Oscar nominee Julianne Moore ("Far From Heaven"), Emma Stone, Jonah Bobo and John Carroll Lynch, with Academy Award winner Marisa Tomei ("My Cousin Vinnie") and Kevin Bacon. Analeigh Tipton, multi-platinum recording artist Josh Groban, Liza Lapira and Joey King also star.

David A. Siegel, Vance DeGeneres and Charlie Hartsock are the film's executive producers. The behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography Andrew Dunn, production designer William Arnold, editor Lee Haxall and costume designer Dayna Pink. Music is by Christophe Beck and Nick Urata.
