One of the relatively few smart, adult comedies that surfaced during this year's summer season, this tale - written by Dan Fogelman ("Cars," "Tangled") - casts an appealing Steve Carell as a man left completely adrift by his wife's (Julianne Moore) sudden desire for a divorce.
As he tries to make new connections, he inherits an unlikely mentor (Ryan Gosling, also very entertaining here) in re-entering the world of dating. Emma Stone makes her mark as well in a fine cast that also includes Marisa Tomei, Kevin Bacon and singer Josh Groban. *** (PG-13: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray)
