In the spirit of the Bard's "Midsummer's Night Dream," we now have a contemporary comedy that shows how love twists us into raving nincompoops. And if he were with us today, the Movie Slut thinks Will would have cast Steve Carell as the lead fool.
Our "Office" friend is spot on as the cuckolded spouse who's a fool in more ways than one. His isn't the only story of unrequited and befuddled love on this screen. And just when you think this movie isn't all that, it proves you wrong.
Also terrific in their roles: Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Julianne Moore.
You'd be a fool to miss this one.
