Ziegfeld meltdown

'Crazy Stupid Love' preems in Gotham

Despite its obvious L.A. backdrop, Warners preemed “Crazy Stupid Love” in Gotham on Tuesday.

“I think this movie is really sophisticated and there’s something super sophisticated about having a premiere in New York,” pic’s scribe Dan Fogelman said following the Ziegfeld screening.

Scribe, who wrote the script with Steve Carell in mind, saw his work get off the ground in near-record time. Regarding that quick turnaround, Carell was super modest, calling it just “lucky.”

Not so lucky were moviegoers, trying their best to keep dry in the sauna-like venue. It was so hot that pic’s co-helmer John Requa said he would be making a quick trip back to his hotel room to change into more accommodating clothing.
