Excerpt: What a great film! David O. Russell always seems to get the best out of his actors and this was a tour-de-force of great acting. This truly was an actors film. And we were all along for the ride. It's too bad that this film had to come out the same year as Lincoln, because Bradley Cooper deserved the Academy Award just as much as his co-star, Jennifer Lawrence, who won. Russell is so good getting the best out of his actors, that Chris Tucker gives a great performance.
Excerpt: I have to admit, I didn’t think much about this comedy, romance movie at first. I was getting a little bored with the bipolar antics of Pat (Bradley Cooper), and the denial drenched, obsessive compulsive disorder behavior of Pat Sr. (Robert De Niro). Even zany Danny (Chris Tucker), with his multiple personalities and psychiatric hospital breaks, was coming off as stuffy.
Summary: Wow I had fun playing with this playbook.silver linings playbook. this is another best movie of 2012 I mean the acting is good and the rest of the cast is good.and this movie will get a 4/4 star's "best movie of 2012".
Summary: Fresh and original, Silver Linings Playbook is my favorite film of 2012! It's a family drama, a romantic comedy, and a touching story of people suffering from mental illness, but all the while it transcends all these genres making SLP a unique movie experience. Powerfully acted by its leads Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper who gives the best performance of his career, as well as the supporting cast. Perfectly directed by David O Russell.
Excerpt: Bradley Cooper, where have you been all these years? Another comedy classic for the future, written and directed by David O. Russell (Three Kings, I Heart Huckabees, The Fighter) and starring Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro, Jacki Weaver and… CHRIS TUCKER? The story is about Pat Solitano, Jr., an undiagnosed bi-polar, who was the victim of a mental breakdown after catching his wife in the shower with his colleague.
Excerpt: Silver Lining's Playbook: 4.5/5 Pat Salitano is a man burdened down by mental disorders and the nasty divorce he went through. An 8 month stay in the psych ward is believed to be just the right remedy for Pat and with that he is released. The biggest thing making an impact on his mind is this notion that he can get his wife back. While reconnecting with some old friends he meets a girl who is willing to help him get back in touch his estranged wife.
Excerpt: What an awesome surprise. A very serious movie about mental illness and coping with loss disguised as romantic comedy. Great direction, awesome casting, incredible performances by Robert Deniro, Jennifer Lawrence and even Bradley Cooper (that was the biggest surprise) and a strong soundtrack/score combine to create my favorite movie of 2012.
Excerpt: Released from a mental health institution after months of detainment, Pat Solitano (Bradley Cooper) lives with his parents. Desperate to reconnect with his wife, Nikki, he befriends Tifanny (Jennifer Lawrence) who is now a widow, and spends time together. *** To some extent I could not understand why this movie was actually nominated for Academy Awards. I felt the film, in general, was plain and simple, without any big surprises in it.
