Cal Weaver (Creator/SteveCarell) is living the dream - he's got a good job, nice house, and great kids. Cal gets the surprise of his life when he learns his wife Emily (Creator/JulianneMoore) has been cheating on him with a coworker, David Lindhagen (KevinBacon), and wants a divorce. After moving into his own apartment, Cal begins grieving at a bar night after night talking to himself about his situation where he meets a young man named Jacob Palmer (RyanGosling). Jacob is a womanizer who successfully beds women each night, although he does take a particular interest in a young woman named Hannah (EmmaStone), the only woman to resist his advances. Not wanting to watch Cal keep draining his sorrows night after night, Jacob agrees to teach him his trade so that he can have the confidence to earn Emily back. Because Emily is the only woman Cal has even been with, Cal doesn't have much experience, so Jacob gives Cal a makeover and has him watch his tricks at the bar.

* AndStarring: "With Creator/MarisaTomei and Creator/KevinBacon".



* TheReveal:
** Creator/MarisaTomei's character is [[spoiler: Robbie's teacher.]]
** Hannah is [[spoiler: Cal and Emily's daughter.]]



* TeenPregnancy: [[spoiler: We later learn that Emily had Hannah when she was 17.]]
* TheReveal:
** MarisaTomei's character is [[spoiler: Robbie's teacher.]]
** Hannah is [[spoiler: Cal and Emily's daughter.]]



* TeenPregnancy: Played with. Emily is in her mid forties. She states that she got married very young implying this trope. It is a bit puzzling, as her children are fairly small (13 and below 10). [[spoiler: We later learn that she is the mother of a 27 year old (Hannah) whom she had when she was a teenager]].

* BrokenAesop: Apparently practically stalking a girl, publicly humiliating her at her school, and repeatedly ignoring her pleas to stop contacting her because you are making her uncomfortable will get you, not a restraining order, but [[spoiler: nudes.]]

** Subverted. Jessica suffers Robbie because she knows he's 13 and doesn't know better. In fact she considers him sweet, but severely misguided.

Added DiffLines:

** The movie is even aware of the joke, as [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Six_Degrees_of_Kevin_Bacon Kevin Bacon]] is David Lindhagen.


Added DiffLines:

** Jessica calls out Robbie on his crush, but it's clear that she's into his dad Cal. The difference is actually way more extreme in her case.

* ActorAllusion: Annaleigh Tipton [[Series/AmericasNextTopModel posing while getting photographed]].
* AllStarCast: Creator/SteveCarell. Creator/KevinBacon, Creator/RyanGosling, Creator/MarisaTomei, Creator/EmmaStone, Creator/JulianneMoore.



* DawsonCasting: 22-year old Analeigh Tipton as 17/18 year old Jessica. Not as bad as other examples, but still there.
** Madison, the blonde girl with the "huge rack" whom Jessica solicits for advice was played by 23 year old Julianna Guill. The character was supposed to be 17 or 18 at most.
** Inverted by 22 year old EmmaStone as 27 year old Hannah.

* AllStarCast: Creator/SteveCarell. Creator/KevinBacon, Creator/RyanGosling, Creator/MarisaTomei, Creator/EmmaStone, Creator/JulianneMoore. Although, admittedly, neither Stone nor to a lesser extent, Gosling, were big name stars then.
