Silver Linings Playbook is about how life is unfair. Because Bradly Cooper plays a guy who gets out of a mental institution and gets to bang Jennifer Lawrence. I haven’t been institutionalized yet and WHERE’S MY BANGING? HUH?
Sorry, clearly though I haven’t been put in a nuthouse I may need to be.
So Bradley Cooper’s Pat Solitano used to be a high school teacher but entered a mental institution for severe depression. Now that he’s out he’s moved back home with his parents and is trying to get his life back together. Part of this is reconnecting with his ex-wife, but is’t also about getting stinky with Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Tiffany. Tiffany has problems of her own. And thus crazy attracts crazy and they fall in love by dancing together.
Seriously. They DANCE.

What’s Good About It?
I like the message about staying positive, especially when you’re sad. For instance, today I was emptying a bucket in my basement that’s for catching water from a leak. It seems a mouse jumped in there some time before and passed away. It made me sad.
On the bright side, NEW BEST FRIEND.
What’s Bad About It?
Man, I’m gonna take that mouse EVERYWHERE. What’s that, Father Something or Other? Wonder Mouse can’t have any eucharist? What, is his soul not worth saving? HOW DARE YOU JUDGE OUR FRIENDSHIP. THIS IS WHY THE CRUSADES HAPPENED, MAN.
NO I DON’T JUST WANT A BLESSING INSTEAD. GIVE ME A MOUSE-SIZE EUCHARIST.
AND A THIMBLE OF WINE.
Our Clever Prediction
I like Jennifer Lawrence, and she looks especially pretty in… well, everything. So there’s that. Bradly Cooper looks like he’s doing a good job wearing a garbage bag, and Robert Deniro is halfway decent on occasion. Wonder Mouse and I will cautiously give Silver Linings Playbook a B+ in terms of how it’ll do.
