SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK Movie Review




As another smash-hit, David O. Russell (The Fighter) is delivering this dramatic comedy that won’t challenge the audience, but will leave them upbeat and entertained without having their intelligence insulted. My thoughts are that this award-winning Director has tasted oodles of awards and recognition for The Fighter; so now he is focused on maintaining a winning streak with this latest release. Silver Linings Playbook, despite the mouthful of a title, looks like a strong, albeit conventional flick with plenty of attributes that makes for another obvious smash.In it, Bradley Cooper plays the character Pat Solitano, a nut-job still living with his parents at age thirty-seven after being released from a mental institution. This is that dude that we can all relate to with a certain level of normalcy at some point in time in our lives. We all know that one person that seems quite normal on the outside, but as soon as we get a little closer; we start to realize there is something weird about the person. Well Cooper nails this role down to a “T.” The character forces one to feel a combination of sorrow and happiness while empathy and laughter sets in. READ FULL REVIEW
