Love makes us do crazy things and that is the central theme of this omnibus. But like most omnibuses, this one also suffers from too many characters and sub plots. Though Steve Carell remains the leading protagonist, other stories intertwine with his leaving for a big chaotic climax at the end; much like a Priyadarshan film.

"Crazy, Stupid, Love" starts out as a romantic comedy but completely spins the concept on its head and thrives more on the feelings and emotions of the characters rather than funny scenes. And here the acting is top notch by all parties. Steve Carell displays warmth, goofiness and sensitivity all at the same time. Julianne Moore gives another seasoned performance, albeit quite similar to her outing in "The Kids Are Alright". Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone and young Bobo and Tipton too shoulder the movie bravely.

The director duo of Ficarra and Ruqua (sounds more like an Arab fable) let us go on a lovable light but lukewarm ride all the while giving tidbits to nibble on and observe the madness that is love. The writing is also very mellow and doesn't depend on many gags or punch lines; although Gosling and Marisa Tomei bring some over-the-top moments.

This is a good date night movie or something to catch up with friends over. But don't go expecting warm mushiness or bouts of hysteria to engulf you over the weekend.

3 stars.
