At fortysomething, straight-laced Cal Weaver (Carell) 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 (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 (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 (Bobo), is in love with his 17-year-old babysitter, Jessica (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 (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.

Initially the two main reasons I wanted to see this movie was because of Steve Carell and Emma Stone. I absolutely loved Carell in The Office and I love everything Emma Stone is in, especially Easy A.
So we began to watch it… both actors were amazing but we just couldn’t piece the storyline together. How did Stone’s character fit in, how could Carell’s wife do that to him, and o.m.g. look at Ryan Gosling’s abs! The storyline kept our attention and I felt just terrible for Carell’s character during the whole story.
When the storyline came together and we found out how everyone fit together it all made sense. I love the eternal theme throughout the movie… fight for your soul mate. There were a few racy spots, but again it’s rated pg-13 so it’s expected. I loved this movie and I’m so glad I own it!
