Monday Movie Review

Silver Linings Playbook
I'm not really sure what to say about this one. It was somewhat of a quirky and interesting movie, but still one I enjoyed. I am a little surprised that it's getting so much Oscar talk, not necessarily that it doesn't deserve it, but it isn't the type I normally picture as "Oscar Winner."

I did like Jennifer Lawrence it in, and would be happy it she won an Oscar for this. How crazy would it be if suddenly The Hunger Games started an Oscar winning actress? I don't see that happening for any of the Twilight kids anytime soon.

Also with a fun cameo in this was Julia Stiles. I can't say I loved her character, but was happy to see her in a movie again.

I don't necessarily think this is a movie that has to be seen in the theaters. But if you're looking to see the Oscar movies before the award show, you may want to see this sooner rather than later.


  1. I am so eager to see this! Partly b/c it's set in Philly and I grew up near there and partly b/c the plot intrigues me...

  2. People at work really liked this one, but I play to wait for it on the "on demand" circuit.

    Thanks for stopping by and for blogging about this one as well.

    Have a great week

  3. I had never even heard of Silver Linings Playbook until the awards show last night. Not sure where I've been?? Glad to hear it's decent. :)

  4. I really really want to see this. I have a major girl crush on Jennifer Lawrence and since Hunger Games is one of my favorites I'm sure she's great in this. I loved that she won the GG!

  5. I am DYING to see it. And I totally agree about the Twilight kids--I mean, THG's can already say they have a GG-award winner! I think Jennifer Lawrence is just fantastic and such a great role model--so real and down-to-earth, awkward and funny. I'm hoping to talk the husby into this this weekend!
