A solid, sin­cere com­edy with a top-flight cast. Steve Carell stars as Cal, a mid­dle-aged Mr Av­er­age who has just been dumped by wife Emily (Ju­lianne Moore). With help from a young Mr Smooth named Ja­cob (Ryan Gosling), Cal grad­u­ally be­comes a pro­fi­cient player of the dat­ing game. It takes an hour to work out what the heck the al­ways-in­cred­i­ble Emma Stone is do­ing in the pic­ture, but the wait is worth it.
