SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK MOVIE
FRESH AND PERKY ROMANTIC COMEDY IS ON SCREENS EVERYWHERE
Whether “Silver Linings” wins any Academy Awards – you still should see it. This movie will make you smile. On the other hand, you will be a little nervous. I do know for a fact, that you will not leave your seat. The story is truly quirky, hilarious and very complicated.
The movie takes us on a journey of family troubles. The dysfunctional family has a hard time putting their lives together. Maybe you have witnessed families that are out of synch before. If so, you will love the Pix even more.
Matthew Quick (writer) bases the film story on the novel. Pat (Bradley Cooper) moves back into his parent’s house after spending months in a mental hospital. One moment he is like a loving Angel, and the next moment he goes Zippity Do-Da Crackers. His father (Robert DeNiro) doesn’t know how to calm his Son when his Son joins the family again. De Niro looks like he might make it as supporting actor. Will his son make more violent outbursts? Of course he will – until he meets someone who knows how to quite him down. Bradley Cooper, has this to say: “I’m remaking myself.” – Pat.
Bradley meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), and love calms the storm. This smart, slick movie is not about nudity, f**k bombs, or bashing Gays. So you can relax – it’s a fun time, and a very well made film story. The magnificent actors keep this movie truly “SILVER.” Pat and Tiffany (his girl friend) can be bi-polar and still love each other. But don’t mention Hemingway. Pat goes bonkers when he reads the last chapter of the book.
Here is one movie that you will think about over and over again. It's not just Silver -- this is pure GOLD!
Great soundtrack – Great story – Fun to watch – and fabulous music and dancing, along with the bi-polar. What we have here is one of the ‘Best Movies of the Year’.
RATING: FOUR BOXES OF POPCORN!!!! (highest rating) – trademarked-
