Silver Linings Playbook Movie Review (2013)
The Good: Robert DeNiro does a nice job as the father, and the rest of the support cast does an excellent job as well. The story line was intriguing from the very beginning. You want to find out what's going on, what happened in the "incident", and what's wrong with Bradley Cooper's character "Pat". What's interesting about this movie's theme is the very thin line between "normal people" who have issues and the institutionalized crazy people.
The Bad: 2 hours long, and the story just seems to drag a long, until the very last 20 mins. Once you find out what happened, what's wrong with Pat, and the incident, you pretty much just want to get to the resolution of the story. You just have to wait an extra hour to get there.
The Why: This is a "Crazy" love story (emphasis on the crazy) that does have much deeper implications and themes throughout the entire film. However I do not believe that the average movie goer would have the patience to watch, and appreciate this film. I also think that it was really over hyped. I wouldn't recommend the rental unless you get your mind ready for a slooooooow day.
The Rating: 6.5/10
