How did it miss its own message?
Silver Linings Playbook 6/10
I don't understand the acclaim for what turns out to be a fairly generic rom-com. The acting is unremarkable, and if anything Lawrence is badly miscast; far too young for her character.
I thought the movie actually missed probably its strongest message, that a couple with diagnosed mental health issues turn out to be relatively sane in comparison with their family and friends.
I lurk. If I've spoken to you, I'm either impassioned, or drunk.
