Netflix Users Can’t Get Enough Of Ryan Gosling Movie That Was Just Added


Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone drew widespread acclaim for 2016’s award-winning musical La La Land, but they actually starred together in another movie five years previously. That film, 2011’s Crazy, Stupid, Love, just landed on Netflix at the start of this month and it’s instantly shot up the charts to become one of the most popular titles on the platform. According to FlixPatrol, the romcom is the sixth most viewed movie on Netflix in the US today, and as you can see below, users just can’t get enough of it.

Crazy Stupid Love

Crazy, Stupid, Love is an ensemble piece featuring an all-star cast including Steve Carell, Julianne Moore, Marisa Tomei and Kevin Bacon, but Gosling and Stone’s terrific chemistry in it means they steal the show. Gosling plays Jacob, a serial womanizer, who encounters Cal (Carell), who’s just discovered his wife has cheated on him, and teaches him how to pick up women in bars. At the same time, though, Jacob has finally met a woman he really likes but who’s totally resistant to his charms – Stone’s Hannah.

To say anymore would be to spoil it, as the movie’s various plots start to interweave and connect in unexpected ways as the story progresses. It isn’t quite the best thing that Gosling and Stone have ever done – not even together – but it is a strong example of the genre. It’s Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes with a 79% critics score, and an almost matching 78% audience rating. As the site’s critical consensus puts it: “It never lives up to the first part of its title, but Crazy, Stupid, Loves unabashed sweetness – and its terrifically talented cast – more than make up for its flaws.”

Ryan Gosling is actually teaming up with Netflix for the streamer’s next major original movie, crime thriller The Gray Man, from the Russo brothers and co-starring Chris Evans, which is just about to start shooting. Emma Stone, meanwhile, leads Disney’s Cruella, which comes out this May.
