Steve Carrell is the master of comic timing, with a talent for acting - this has pretty much been established. The question then, is, can he pull off the same tricks every time on screen? Probably not, if his latest movie (also produced by him), Crazy Stupid Love, is any indication of his popularity.
The plot starts with Cal Weaver (Steve Carrell) being told by his wide Emily (Julianne Moore) that she needs a divorce, and that she had slept with her colleague David Lindhagen (Kevin Bacon). Cal moves out, but cannot get over his wife.
