    I thought, “Crazy, Stupid Love” was a great movie. The part where Ryan G. & Emma S. have a long chat was very moving; the guy finds a friend to get to know and fall in love with — I thought that was convincing. I don’t think movies should be moral parables that we look to for making the perfect society; one cannot condone his womanizing in the movie but it made for a good backdrop to the “finding the right girl” scene and for inclusion in the rest of the movie. I don’t think movie symbols should be taken too seriously, or else they will all be banished from the Republic, as Plato would have done with the poets for misrepresenting the Gods.
