I was as surprised as you are.

The new ensemble romantic comedy Crazy Stupid Love has a shiny new trailer, and it looks better than the usual crop of mid-to-upper level romcoms. Steve Carell heads a top notch cast including Julianne Moore, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Kevin Bacon, and Marisa Tomei. The film appears to be about a recently divorced/separated man (Carrel) who gets a bit of a “Hitch” treatment from younger, suaver, and all around alpha-er male Ryan Gosling. Oh, and then Emma Stone shows up and I got all distracted and couldn’t focus on anything else that happens. It’s directed by Bad Santa duo Glenn Ficarra and John Requa and comes out July 29th.

John Requa and Glen Ficarra, the screenwriters who first broke out in 2003 with the dirty and hilarious Bad Santa, are tossing their hats back in the hard R comedy game with an untitled buddy cop picture they’ve described as a cross between “Letha Weapon and Bad Santa.” The duo shied away from the raunchy stuff after Bad Santa with their script for Richard Linklater‘s Bad News Bears, and recently had a stint behind the camera directing their script for the just released Jim Carrey/Ewan McGregor comedy I Love You Phillip Morris, but the two are excited to return to the inspired naughtiness of their debut. Requa was quoted as saying, “We owe one to those people [who loved ‘Santa’]. Since ‘Bad Santa,’ we haven’t written for them.” Finally, another movie for degenerate weirdo drunks with potty mouths and midget sidekicks. I’ve felt so unfulfilled. (ThePlaylist)
