MOVIE REVIEW: "Silver Linings Playbook"

I know, by now the movie’s name is just “Silver Linings” but I went for the original name, that came before all this Acadamy Award craze surrounding the film that I thought was completely inappropriate. I saw this a while ago and thought it was a nice movie with witty scenes. However, then I got to know it was nominated for 8 Academy Awards and was happy I saw it without expectations.

Nominated for the BIG 5 as well as EVERY acting category, one must expect a brilliant, surprising, fantastic event. But what’s left is a film as simple as can be that is saved by its charm. The contents dealing with psychological disorders is quite funny especially as everyone in the film seems to have one. The dance competition in the end is quite nice. Jennifer Lawrence’s acting is superb and she was given an Academy Award win (congrats!). But what is left? 

Apart from the Best Directing category (!) where it replaced films like Argo or Les Miserables, it was also acknowledged in the Screenplay category as well as the Editing category. I’m asking myself what was so special about the editing of this film. Also, the nominees for Bradley Cooper and Jackie Weaver seemed out-of-the-world to me. Something there went wrong. Apart from that: GOOD movie. Fun. Some nice scenes. Enough for 3 stars. :)


  1. I´m dying to see this movie, can´t believe it hasn´t arrived yet! I think I´m to search for it in some website! Sure Jennifer did a super job! She´s one of my favorites in the industry! Thanks for your review, Felix!

  4. FINALLY someone who shares my opinion on Silver Linings Playbook. I thought it was a decent movie, but never deserved all the nominations it received. Honestly, I also don't think that Lawrence quite deserved the oscar (especially when comparing her to the other nominees...)

  8. I haven't watched it yet, but I guess I realy need to watch it soon!
    Lawrence must be played her role amazingly.

  9. I watched it a few days ago and as I expected it didn't surprise me with anythign special. Yes, it was hilarious at moments and the acting was good, but good enough for Oscar for Jennifer? No, I don't think so. I still don't get what was all the fuss about and why this movie deserves so many Oscar nominations. But oh well overall a nice movie, though I don't think I will remember it in the long run xD

  10. I watched it too, it was ok:)
