‘Silver Linings Playbook’ finds structure in mental script

DVD Review

(Continued)

emann@pvdemocrat.com —

Though I would have potentially passed over Lawrence for the best actress Oscar for Chastain in “Zero Dark Thirty” she is an example of the cast as a whole being so good that the rather weak script behind it was irrelevant. On its own with a weaker set of actors, the story may have felt much more flat and at times behaved as flipped out and unorganized as the personalities portrayed.

With that said, if you don’t mind an artsier take on mental comedy, I’d recommend it for that crowd and be cautious toward anyone who is the least bit obsessive about organization. I doubt I will own it, but harbor no real regret for sitting through it. After only considering therapy once or twice before it was over, I’d say “Silver Linings Playbook” earns three out of five episodes.
