Jeriah's Review of Silver Linings Playbook
Silver Linings Playbook(2012)
This movie starts off with a more serious than not tone. It's not long that the movie starts sprinkling in some darker humor to loosen the tension that is crafted, well enough, into the plot. A few quirky characters pop up every now and again and they all pull in solid performances that are rarely, if ever, cringe worthy with how they perform for the audience. At the start of the movie (Bradley Cooper) narrates more or less that life sucks and just for once why don't stories just have a happy ending? The ending of this film is precisely that, a happy ending for the sake of a happy ending. "Silver Linings Playbook" is a movie that not only satisfies the girlfriend, but the boyfriend as well without any guilt being pulled along the way. I didn't regret sitting in the theater the this films two hour run time and I don't think you will either.
