"Silver Linings Playbook" 10 Scale Rating: 8.0 (Great) ...
The Good: Bradley Cooper is really coming into his own and is showing more and more range as an actor. He was excellent in this. While billed as a "romantic comedy" of sorts, the movie steered clear of common pitfalls that plague most movies from that genre and produced something genuinely unique and original. Impressive mix of subtle laughs, good drama, and heart.
The Bad: Drags a tad in the middle, but picks up and redeems itself in the end. At times feels a little too quirky for it's own good.
