I was kicking around on Apple Trailers trying to find a trailer to share and really struggling to find anything appealing that I had not shared. Getting exasperated, I chose Silver Linings Playbook solely because of the presence of Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, two engaging actors if unleashed in the right material.
The trailer for Silver Linings Playbook looks like it could go both ways, but there is hope that this could be engaging. Cooper’s character looks interesting and it is awesome to see Jacki Weaver in a decently substantial role as his mum. I’m not going to lie, I wrote that sentence after the first 30 secs of the trailer. The rest of it gives me less hope. It is hard to do the two people with mental illness falling in love thing sensitively and without falling into overt tweeness, and I fear this will fail that test. But, I’ll reserve judgement, and hopefully the people involved in this one bring intelligence to the humour.
What do you guys think of this one?
