Crazy, Stupid Love – 6

One wonders how good a movie this could have been with a real actor instead of Steve Carrell in the lead role, but since he was the movie’s executive producer that wasn’t going to happen. As a result, you had Julianne Moore going through a kaleidoscope of facial expressions, showing real hurt, confusion, and longing, while Carrell, playing opposite her, responded with his single doofus look. Even the kids made Carrell look plastic. As a result the movie, despite some funny lines, never came to mean anything, and there was no emotional payoff, except maybe for the teenage babysitter.
