To continue our holiday movie reviews, we have one of the best romantic comedies I've ever seen. Silver Linings Playbook is a great dramedy that combines bipolar craziness with sexy dancing. It very well may be Bradley Cooper's best roll. He's known for The Hangover, but in this movie it's clear he has some great drama skills.

I think the breakout was Jennifer Lawrence. We all know her as Katniss from The Hunger Games and it's clear she's a brilliant actress from Winter's Bone. But if she doesn't win an award for Silver Linings Playbook then she will be robbed! She completely transformed into a slutty, emotional girl. Her chemistry with Bradley Cooper is undeniable. Loved it all the way through!

The dance. We can't talk about the movie unless we mention that final dance scene. Better than Dirty Dancing. I said it. It's the all time best romantic comedy dance of our generation.

I'm keeping this review short and sweet because that's how the movie is. Though there are moments of seriousness since Bradley Cooper's character has to deal with mental illness. It's a perfect combination of serious and funny. One that would make a great movie for the holidays if you're tired of Hobbits and musicals!


  1. I have a BIG girl crush for Jennifer Lawrence. Can't wait to see this movie! Thanks for youe review.

  2. I love Jennifer Lawrence. And Bradley Cooper is nice to look at too. Have you seen the movie, The Words? He's fantastic in that as well. He can pretty much play any character flawlessly in my opinion. Bradley Cooper is like the George Clooney of 30 something actors right now. He can act, he can dance, maybe we'll hear him sing!

  3. I am appearing onward directly in move ahead of beginning your advance position around exactly gone.
