'Silver Linings Playbook' Review By Forrestgump1
A truly terrific and humorous movie all across the board. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence shine in there best performances to date. Its a movie we all can feel good about and walk away with a great message. David O Russel is truly a genius
Story: Patrick (Cooper), to put it bluntly is an ego-statistical manic i suppose. The film opens up with him leaving a mental institution for anger management (he almost killed the man his wife was cheating on him with). Now lost and hopeless, Patrick meets the now widowed Tiffany Maxwell (Lawrence) all she wants to do is be a successful dancer. Patrick is still in love with his "wife" (she has a restraining order against him). Will go to any means to make things right again, even if that means helping Tiffany with her dance competition. The screenplay here, written by O' Russel is truly touching and moving and honestly terrific. Its been awhile since i have seen some scene play out so perfectly in only the direction O' Russel could go. Acting: (4.5/5) Bradley Cooper takes a true dramatic turn in this film as does Lawrence, you probably will hardly recognize them. I was truly impressed. I'm so glad this movie came out to exactly what it should have been, giving the wrong script and direction this movie could have been terrible. Add in some great supporting work from Robert De Niro and Jacki Weever along with Chris Tucker?. How the hell did he end up in this movie. Its been ages since i had seen him in a film (Rush Hour 3) to be exact. It was great to see him on stage as well. Directing: - of course i have been saying it my entire review. David O' Russel is truly a cinematic genius, nough said.
Overall: A truly terrific and humorous movie all across the board. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence shine in there best performances to date. Its a movie we all can feel good about and walk away with a great message. David O Russel is truly a genius. That is all that needs to be said i think about the great film that is "Silver Linings Playbook". This film will more than likely get shut-out by the critically acclaimed hit "Lincoln" but its nice to see a film like this get nominated. It is technically a comedy, but it does have elements of drama mixed throughout the entire picture and that is hit or miss. Hit "Funny People" miss "This Is 40". It all depends on who is starring and where the film is headed. While this will more than likely be one of the most talked about pictures of the year. I'm glad i get to see the film now and can talk about it and now what everyone else likes about the picture. Ladies and Gentlemen if you have not seen this movie or planned to. I suggest seeing it as quickly as possible because quite honestly this film is truly and ut-most a masterpiece. No question.
