'Crazy, Stupid, Love' is a movie made to be quoted. Over and over. Several of these 'Crazy Stupid Love' quotes include musings by Cal (Steve Carell), a middle-aged man in the midst of divorcing his wife, Emily (Julianne Moore). Other clever nuggets of "wisdom" come from player Jacob (Ryan Gosling), who gets thrown for a loop when he meets Hannah (Emma Stone), a woman that captures his heart. Don't see your favorite 'Crazy, Stupid, Love' movie quote listed? Feel free to add it!

Critics generally gave favorable reviews to 'Crazy, Stupid, Love.' Ryan Gosling's hilarious performance as Jacob also earned him a 2012 Golden Globe Awards nomination for Best Actor in a Movie: Comedy or Musical. 'Crazy, Stupid, Love' was also nominated for Favorite Comedy at the 2012 People's Choice Awards.

In case you missed 'Crazy Stupid Love' in theaters (too many people did), you can always watch it on DVD: The 'Crazy Stupid Love' DVD was released on November 1, 2011.

'Crazy, Stupid, Love' follows several different generations of people all struggling to come to terms with what love means. It's crazy and it's stupid, but it's definitely love. Despite being one of the more well-reviewed comedies of summer 2011, 'Crazy Stupid Love' didn't perform as well as other funny movies. The film took in just over $19 million in its box office debut weekend, but did go on to gross more than $75 million as of early-September 2011.

    Perfect Combination of Sexy and Cute

    Cal: "Okay, you know what? I'm in Corporate Insurance. I have children, plural. And my wife was cheating on me with David Lindhagen, which I wasn't supposed to tell you about either. But I did, nice to meet you."
    Kate: "What were you supposed to tell me?"
    Cal: "I do...I don't know! I was supposed to say that you are the perfect combination of sexy and cute. Which is actually something that I used to say to my wife, but now it's become corrupted and I have eighteen layers of clothes on. I'm wearing a shirt and a tie and a sweater and a suede jacket that just seals in all the heat. Seals in all the juices. I'm just...it's all sweat under here. This is just sweat from here down. I'm...this sweater, this is called slim cut, but it feels like a scuba suite and I'm looking at your breasts. What's that about?"
    Kate: "You think I'm the perfect combination of sexy and cute?"
    Cal: "That's what you picked up from what I just said?"

    When Cal tries to pick up Kate (Marisa Tomei), he attempts a slick line at first. When she gets up to leave, however, he comes clean. His honesty is refreshing, and Kate immediately picks up on the sweetness. Without giving anything away, this "sexy and cute combination" line will come back to bite Cal in the a** later, though.

    Fought For You

    Cal: "I'm so mad at you. I'm really mad at you for what you did. But I'm mad at myself too. Because I should not have jumped out of that car - I should have fought for you. Because you fight for your soul mates."
    Emily: "I miss you."

    Ah, now we get down to the drama part of this "dramedy." Divorce is tough going for anyone, but particularly when the two people involved still love each other so much. Cal's right: He needed to fight hard to save his marriage, rather than running away (or jumping from a car - a far more painful choice than actually running).

    War Between the Sexes

    Video: YouTube

    Jacob: "The war between the sexes is over. We won the second women started doing pole dancing for exercise."

    Jacob is a stone cold player, and he's teaching Cal as best he can, acting as his "wing man" and trying to get him out into the dating world (successfully).

    Break Dance Fighting

    Jacob: "Let's talk about how many women you've been with."
    Cal: "Sexually?"
    Jacob: "Yeah, no. I mean break dance fighting."

    Cal's experience with women is limited to Emily. They've been together since high school - so Cal has a lot of things to learn. Break dance fighting is not one of those things.
