At fortysomething, straight-laced Cal Weaver (Steve Carell) is living the dream--good job, nice house, great kids and marriage to his high school sweetheart. But when Cal learns that his wife, Emily (Julianne Moore), has cheated on him and wants a divorce, his perfect life quickly unravels. Worse, in today's single world, Cal, who hasn't dated in decades, stands out as the epitome of un-smooth.
Now spending his free evenings sulking alone at a local bar, the hapless Cal is taken on as wingman and protege to handsome, thirtysomething player Jacob Palmer (Ryan Gosling). In an effort to help Cal get over his wife and start living his life, Jacob opens Cal's eyes to the many options before him: flirty women, manly drinks and a sense of style that can t be found at Supercuts or The Gap.
Cal and Emily aren't the only ones looking for love in what might be all the wrong places: Cal's 13-year-old son, Robbie, is crazy about his 17-year-old babysitter, Jessica, who harbors a crush on Cal. And despite Cal's makeover and his many new conquests, the one thing that can't be made over is his heart, which seems to keep leading him back to where he began.

Steve Carrell is shocked when his wife of 25 years (Julianne Moore) tells him she wants a divorce after she has a one-night stand with a work colleague
After moving out of home he starts to drown his sorrows in local pick up joints. He is spotted by younger self-confessed Lothario played by Ryan Gosling. He uses his good looks and charm to bed almost all the women he sets his eye on. He decides to take Carrell under his wing to advise him how to make the most of his newly single status. However we do see Gosling failing with one of his targets, played by Emma Stone.
There are plenty of laughs as Carrell's character is transformed and starts getting a bit of luck with the ladies, first off with a teacher, played by Marisa Tomei. We also see how he tries to maintain a good relationship with his kids. There are a number of storylines that you know will probably all come together at some stage of the movie.
The cast members are all excellent. Stone and Carrell have shone in comedies before and are excellent again here. Moore, Gosling, Tomei and Kevin Bacon also put in excellent performances. Jonah Bobo is also excellent as Carrell's opinionated teenage son.
The writing is excellent, making us feel sympathy for the main characters, despite their faults. This helps to make the film noticeably better than the normal romcom.
So, despite a closing scene at a school graduation that is dragged out too long, I really enjoyed this movie.
Steve Carell plays Cal, a husband who splits from his high school sweetheart, played by Julianne Moore, after she cheats. Hanging out in single bars every nights he sees this ladies man played by Ryan Gosling successfully pick up numerous women, while he says out loud to anyone who will listen, 'my wife cheated on me with xxxx.'
Meanwhile his teenage son has the hots for his babysitter, while the babysitter crushes on Cal. We have 4 romantic triangles between the main characters, that are developed to great comic effect.
So, Ryan Gosling's character takes him under his wing, as his wing man, and shows him how to score with the ladies, which leads to many interesting twists and turns.
There were several parts of this movie that made me cringe, one was the patheticness of the character played by Steve Carell. The teenage crush made me cringe a little, especially with the absurd things this kid did to get her attention.
In fairness this was more than balanced with some high quality scenes and interactions, particularly the scenes with Marisa Tomei, who I thought was absolutely brilliant, especially when her simmering emotions boil over at the parent teacher meeting.
The Dirty Dancing routine between Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone was simply movie magic, and one of the best scenes I have seen all year, two quality actors, chemistry, everything, perfect.
I have a sneaking suspicion that Ryan Gosling may be one the best actors on the planet. You probably know him from The Notebook, a perennial top 100 rental on leading dvd rental sites. He has studously avoided the mainstream doing indie and art house movies.Read more ›
Whilst the premise of this film seems rather convoluted, it's remarkably easy to follow once it's laid out for you, the comedy is refreshing as it tends to steer clear of the usual set of rom-com clichés by providing functional characters that do fine in life, but wrestle with love - for instance Cal still has his job, Jessica does fine at school and Jacob is a master of his trade.Read more ›
