Crazy, Stupid, Love was a solid movie, even if it didn’t really offer anything new to the genre I still enjoyed it. I loved the music though! One of my favorite soundtracks since Garden State…I do wonder though, how do they determine what songs make the official soundtrack?
For example, the movie had two of my all-time favorite songs in it, but only one made it to the soundtrack. The first one, “Almanac” by The Acorn is on the soundtrack and it played in Weaver’s SUV when Cal’s struggle to understand stops Jessica’s attempt to let him know how she feels. Love that song….
The other one, “Loops” by Junip was the song playing when Robbie declares his love for all to see but Jessica tells him there’s someone else…and it didn’t make the cut. How does this get decided? I’d get the soundtrack for sure if they had “Loops” on it (probably still will buy it but ugh it would be better with Loops).
