I had a lot of paroday names for the title, if I’d ended up hating the movie.  Crazy Stupid….OK, so I had one, and it wasn’t even that good!  But there is nothing I have to complain about regarding that movie. It was truly a love story game-changer.  It’s portrayal of modern day love was completely real, sometimes depressing, but in the end, perfect. It made love out to be what it really is: hard, gruelling, rewarding, and never-ending. One of my favorite parts is when Cal’s son makes his speech at graduation about how there is no such thing as a soul mate, and then Cal gets up and proclaims that it doesn’t matter how old you are. You always know what love is and you are never to young to meet your soul mate.
And I swear, it had nothing to do with Ryan Gosling.  I absolutely loved this movie.  Because it was crazy. And it was stupid. But it was real love.
