Bill Desowitz. Russell arguably delivers the best rom-com in quite some time. He liked this cockeyed Philadelphia story in which two mentally unstable social misfits Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence hook up and dance their way to happiness and better self-awareness.
Two years ago, a spell was cast over audiences and critics alike. A lovey-dovey rom-com with crackerjack casting and an authentic indie setting bewitched moviegoers into believing that it had a never-ending supply of onions worth peeling. The magic has worn thin, and not even an adorably foul-mouthed Jennifer Lawrence can clean up this self-assured serving of predictability. Silver Linings Playbook follows the blossoming relationship between Pat Bradley Cooper and his troubled neighbour Tiffany Lawrence as they get to grips with their respective broken hearts. Tiffany has lost her husband in a car accident, escaping the pain through sexual encounters with her work colleagues. Insert understated heart-warming pre-credits couch snuggle here.
