I went to check out Silver Linings Playbook this morning. Minor spoiler below.
I had a good time. It's not my favourite film of last year, but it's pretty good overall. What I especially liked is how about every character in this film seems to have some peculiarity to him or her. It made for an interesting blend of characters which were are well acted by their actors.
My only small complaint is that the film leaned a little bit too much on typical romantic comedy elements at the end. I was a bit disappointed that it didn't do anything to make itself really special. Then again, the ending was suitable and I don't think ending this film with a downer would've been better.
Lastly, Jennifer Lawrence was very good and I have nothing but sympathy for her, but I still think Emmanuelle Riva deserved the Oscar more.
