Movie review: Silver Linings Playbook

Silver Linings PlaybookGrade: A

*Silver Linings Playbook* was a grade-A, heartfelt, comedy.

Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence had great chemistry  together from the very beginning. Bradley continues to impress that he’s not just another pretty face and Jennifer stepped into her “big girl shoes” for this movie – after what I thought was a rather stiff performance in *Hunger Games*.

*Silver Linings Playbook* is a movie that explores the issues of humanity while keeping you laughing at the same time. That’s a challenging task but the entire cast did a great job which is a sign of good directing by David O. Russell, who also directed *The Fighter*

Robert De Niro’s character wasn’t one easily achieved but no one could have done a better job. But then we say that of most of De Niro’s performances.

Overall, Silver Linings Playbook was a mature moral story that I’m sure most of the audience will find something to relate to.

RunPee Niece is our Pinch Hitter. When our normal starters are out for the count and we need a smart cookie to step up the plate, she knocks it out of the park. Which is to say: she’s really good at getting Peetimes and writing reviews. As a busy mom to an active youngster and a full-time student, she’s juggling a lot already. We’re truly thankful when she steps in. She — like her mother, RunPee Sis — loves to cover horror: the scarier or grosser, the better. Also, she doesn’t mind catching a good date movie with her man, or a fun kiddie flick to share with her amusing youngster (who, by the way, has seen enough movies with all of us to qualify as the world’s only six-year-old Peetime expert).
