We saw Silver Linings Playbook tonight and it’s great. Jennifer Lawrence is fucking delightful and Bobby DeNiro made me cry twice. It’s definitely more of a romantic comedy than the trailer leads you to believe, but it keeps one foot firmly in the “good-humored dramedy” category and it works hard for your love.
They get a little heavy-handed with the “Jen Lawrence’s character is a sassy chick who has everyone’s number,” schtick toward the end there, and I’d be surprised if anyone actually gets an Oscar out of it (so much buzz!), but def see it anyway. Maybe save it for Christmas and go see it with your mom when you’re visiting home and she complains that you never do anything together anymore.
