Crazy Stupid Love
As far as romantic comedies go, they rarely break from the script, but that isn't the case here. In many ways, this film pokes fun at the clichéd moments found in the genre and the stars do a good job portraying their characters. I especially liked the young actor, Jonah Bobo, as he swoons over his babysitter (Jessica Tipton).
This is a solid HD transfer and features plenty of detail, decent black levels, and a strong color palette. Contrast is well balanced throughout the movie and flesh tones have realistic textures and hue. The DTS-HD MA 5.1 exhibits decent dynamics, intelligible dialog, and engaging surround queues, especially during the bar scenes.
Supplements include two short featurettes, deleted scenes, a bonus DVD of the feature film, and an UltraViolet Digital Copy.
Wittier and more intelligent than your average romantic comedy, Crazy Stupid Love is definitely a crowd pleaser. If you're looking for a fun movie for a date night be sure to put this one near the top of your queue.
