If you want to make a mark, do it with style.
Yes it’s a rom-com, but there’s plenty that a man can learn from Crazy, Stupid, Love.
The standout scene in the movie is when Gosling takes Carell shopping. Carell starts the scene in terrible clothes, symbolizing how he has let himself go and descended into ‘dad’ clothes. He looks bland and invisible in clothes that don’t fit. He’s meek and submissive. He has no style of his own and has no impact on anyone around him. The contrast with Gosling is huge. Gosling’s character is sharply dressed. He doesn’t care so much about what people think and he is a much more confident personality who goes after what he wants. He knows the importance of good style and a strong personal appearance on how you are perceived in life. A strong impression helps you succeed in life.
