A New Favorite Film
Silver Linings Playbook


On Saturday night, I finally went to see Silver Linings Playbook with a friend. This was, of course, after we had yummy Mexican food and margaritas. I'd been wanting to see it ever since my mother-in-law sent me the trailer on Facebook. The film, which was nominated for eight Academy Awards, didn't disappoint. I loved every bit of it, from the opening scene until the end. It's one I can see myself watching over and over again. It's touching, heartbreaking and funny. All of the performances were great, but Bradley and Jennifer were amazing.

She's 22. He's 38. Eh, that's only a sixteen-year age difference. He should get on that while he still can. They'd make beautiful babies together. I know it'll probably never happen, but they do have great chemistry together.





They're both just so pretty.





Have you seen Silver Linings Playbook?

If so, what'd you think?

I saw it this past weekend. even though B Coop played some mental dude I loved him for it. I think even more than seeing him all dirty and sweaty in all of The Hangovers.

jennifer lawrence is a badass...even in this movie.

and chris tucker was probably my favorite.

Seriously. One of my very favorites of last year. I'm buying it the second it's out on DVD.

I haven't seen it yet, but with all the Oscar buzz it generated, it was quickly put on my "to watch" list.

Speaking of their on-screen chemistry, did you know they're in another movie together? It's supposed to be released this year. It's call Serena. Just passing on the info for all Jenn lovers to be fully informed! :)

I have heard such good things about this movie ... still haven't seen it yet though!
I adore Jennifer Lawrence, so I am sure I will love this, too.

I saw it back in December and LOVED everything about it. I don't think Bradley got enough recognition. Jennifer was awesome, of course, but he was so amazing. I loved the entire cast actually. Everyone was so perfect and the crazy chemistry was the best I've seen in a movie in a long time. I love David O. Russell too. Jake Gyllenhaal is in his next movie!
