I have never been one for the romantic films, as I say many times, but it is not because of the subject matter of the film rather it is the formulaic nature of them. So my default mode of emotional investment is skeptical when watching a romance film, either comedy, drama, or anything of the like. I talked about how much I loved the film (500) Days of Summer and the capturing of young love and all the confusing shit that comes along with it. It was a refreshing entry to the genre and the leads were young, gorgeous and likeable, which helps for multiple viewings. There were a few short comings with the film, ones that really didn’t detract from the enjoyment but just some nitpicky things about young love. For me, Like Crazy is the film that (500) Days of Summer wishes it was. A bold statement but one that has a ring of truth.
