This romantic comedy is about Cal Weaver, a husband and father who is extremely successful and happy with his life. Well, that is, until he finds out that his wife has been cheating on him and wants a divorce. This leads him into the arms of a young stud named Jacob Palmer, who will set out to teach Cal how to regain his mojo and meet a new woman to love. This movie is outrageous and ridiculous in many ways, but also has many moments which may ring true for some. The chemistry between the cast members is what keeps it alive and so entertaining to watch. I would rate this movie 4/5 stars.

Funny, poignant, outlandish at times, story of a couple's responses to a dulled marriage.

Worth watching but it will not get any special trophy. I would say a chick flick type of movie.

It certainly is crazy and fun.

Still one of my favorite romantic-comedies, and one of the few that the men in my life have enjoyed as much as the women. A middle-aged man in a crumbling marriage meets a young, professional ladies-man, and hilarity and drama ensue. This movie is goofy fun, and hits the spot when I just need a good laugh and a real-world-but-not-too-heavy love story.

ok, first half was slow but some good dialogue, second half some funny situations (like backyard), a little unbelievable and mysoginistic?

Never watched the movie. The cover looks terrible. One look at it makes it look like a porn movie.

A passable comedy/romance story. Didn't interest me at all. Even me being a fan of Julianne Moore didn't help. Yawn.....

I enjoyed this movie, its well acted and has some laugh out loud moments.

Sweet idea and this 2011 film grew on me, but the best scene, and Gosling plays it brilliantly, was better the first time in Francis Veber 's 2006 farce "The Valet."

Cal Weaver: "You know a word that is not used very often anymore? Cuckold. I'm cuckolded. David Lindhagen cuckolded me. He made a cuckold out of me. He slept with my wife and I didn't know about it! And that is the definition of cuckoldom. David Lindhagen took my wife and slept with her. Uuch! Thought I did everything right. Got married, had kids, the house. What do I get for it? I get cuckolded? DAVID LINDHAGEN CUCKOLDED ME, HE MADE A CUCKOLD OUT OF ME."

After moving into his own apartment, Cal goes to a bar night after night, talking loudly about his divorce, until he attracts the attention of a young man named Jacob Palmer (Ryan Gosling).

Jacob agrees to teach Cal how to pick up women, and the two become friends.
