The trailers represent the movie fairly well. If you like the trailer and want to see another 1.5 hrs then you should not be disappointed.
I am not a big fan of either Ryan Gosling or Julianne Moore, and they did nothing here to win me over either. Steve Carrell and Emma Stone are both fun to watch; I would not say this is the best movie for either of them, though. I also think they wasted money on Kevin Bacon and Marisa Tomei - neither one of them was really used effectively here.
I laughed quite a bit more than I expected to. I really enjoyed the story, most of the time. Directing:
The movie felt very real, plausible, and consistent throughout. There were two scenes however that were totally out of place. Both were near the end. I think the film loses steam right around what I guess you would call the climax.
We don't get to the movies very often since our daughter was born. If not for our anniversary I think we would have waited for the DVD.

Very entertaining film. Laugh out loud in places. Steve Carrell is brilliant as usual with his understated humour.
