Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion to watch a movie. While many envision a romantic date with their lover, single people have to endure the holiday as well. Whether you’re on a date, or alone this Valentine’s Day, there’s always a movie to watch. “Crazy, Stupid, Love” is the perfect film for a date, while “(500) Days of Summer” makes a good fit for the lonelier viewer.
“Crazy, Stupid, Love” is a great light-hearted, romantic comedy to watch on Valentine’s Day with a sweetheart. Although it doesn’t necessarily stand out from others films in the same genre — in terms of the message it sends about love — it is incredibly funny and will have you laughing the whole way through.
The film illustrates different stages of love, from teenage crushes to the bachelorism of early adulthood to the products of a mid-life crisis. Starring Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore and Emma Stone, among others, the film boasts a star-studded cast.
Gosling plays Jacob, the ultimate ladies’ man and is essentially a mentor to Cal (Carell), who needs to regain his “manhood” after he finds out that his wife wants a divorce. Packed with hilarious awkward moments and unforeseen plot twists, the film is funny, sexy and all-around enjoyable.
