Favorite Movie Quote: “You like my day and in a few years I’ll look like him, I’ll come for you then”
Who knows where and when you’ll find love. We all seem to be in search of the elusive “one”, including myself. This movie was really the epitome of Love and just how crazy and stupid it can make you feel and act sometimes. I so enjoyed this moive! It was one of those films where it makes you stop and think about your choices in life. The movie was stacked with amazing talent Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, and Julianne Moore! Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling did bring the funny and their dynamic together is magical on screen. However the stand-out role goes to Robbie Weaver played by Jonah Bobo. I imagine that this is just how a 13 year old boy would act if he was in love….relentless! What happened to that type of pursuit? You know the kind I’m talking about. When you knew you found the person you couldn’t live another moment without. Where you slept very little because most of your time was spent trying to come up with different ways to obtain the prize…..the affection of your soul mate! Hmm, I wonder if our society will ever pursue love in that pure way again?! I also enjoyed the chemistry between Julianne’s Moore charcter and Steve Carell’s character. One of my favorite scenes is where Julianne’s character makes up an excuse to call her husband (who’s she’s separated from) to speak with him about repairs around the house. Been there done that! We’ve all called up someone we’ve missed and loved just to ask them something silly because our heart aches to hear their voice. This huge emotion called love really does make you act crazy and stupid sometimes, but then how else would we cease to exist on this earth without LOVE!
If you’re in the mood to laugh and cry then this film is perfect!
P.S. I think I might want to marry Ryan Gosling!
The score in this movie is so lovely I had to purchase the soundtrack. Favorite song Blood by The Middle East.
