    Crazy, Stupid, Love.

    ★★

    I'm conflicted over this. For about an hour and a half of its duration, it's a solidly enjoyable, occasionally laugh-out-loud funny romcom. Sure, it has contrivances. Sure, Marisa Tomei's character is horribly written. Sure, the 'wise-beyond-his-years' 13-year-old is a grating presence (though the jokes at his expense are brilliant). But it's a solid 3-star film.
