SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, a treat

This is a must-see, feel-good movie about an unlikely set of characters, mental health issues, the struggle for recovery & stable state and the search for love. Jackie Weaver, Bradley Cooper, Robert DeNiro & Jennifer Lawrence deliver Oscar-worthy performances.

An all Time Favorite

I'm a 43 year old man who wanted a few brownie points with the wife. We had to drive a bit to see SLP, but it was worth it for MORE than just a few points. Believe the hype! This is an excellent movie! Jennifer Lawrence deserves the Oscar. I would say the same of Bradley Cooper, but I just recently saw Lincoln, and it's in the bag for Daniel Day. The Oscar for best pic is also in the bag for Lincoln (and I agree)....BUT, for pure entertainment (laughs and cries), and the pleasure of watching an almost Streep like performance (almost because nobody can touch Streep for pure ability), I would take SLP 10 outta 10 times. Move over Mila, the top of my free pass list now has J Lawrence in big bold letters. My wife was probably sorry she did not pick Breaking Dawn after hearing that news.

THE TRAILER IS A DAMN LIE GO SEE IT

Do not be tempted to avoid this film like most Rom-Coms in theaters. The trailer is a disservice the the movie itself. It's quite entertaining, and does something that many rom-coms don't succeed at: being grounded in reality. All the main characters are either living with a mental disorder or dealing with those around it. It brilliantly addresses this in the first half without bashing you over the head about it. By far this is the best I've seen all the actors/actresses in a while especially for Robert DeNiro and Chris Tucker, the two have delivered their best performances in a long time. Now the plot line is somewhat predictable, but in this case you actually don't mind it for the fact how innate Cooper and Lawrence are to their respective roles. It is already gaining buzz to be a top choice for the Oscars and after seeing it I completely understand why.

This movie made me happy. It was touching, unexpectedly funny and it had heart. The cast did an amazing job and it definitely deserves all the Oscar buzz it's been getting.

Funny, Sad ... Real

Two thumbs up!! A packed house in King Of Prussia laughed, cried, and cheered to this emotionally packed, well written, and superbly acted film. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence gave performances of a lifetime. Robert DeNiro was masterful in a supporting role. This story has a raw edge with little sugar coating. It's gritty. It's real. And it's a treat!! I've seen lots of films this year and Silver Lining Playbook sits with Argo and The Sessions as some of our favorite films of 2012.
