Watch Silver Linings Playbook Online Megavideo First up, courtesy of Fandango is the new poster for SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. The David O. Russell film has a quirky, fun trailer that features Robert De Niro in what could be his first performance of the year that doesn’t suck.

Watch Silver Linings Playbook Online Megavideo Plot: Life doesn’t always go according to plan…Pat Solatano (Bradley Cooper) has lost everything — his house, his job, and his wife. He now finds himself living back with his mother (Jacki Weaver) and father (Robert DeNiro) after spending eight months is a state institution on a plea bargain. Pat is determined to rebuild his life, remain positive and reunite with his wife, despite the challenging circumstances of their separation. All Pat’s parents want is for him to get back on his feet – and to share their family’s obsession with the Philadelphia Eagles football team. When Pat meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a mysterious girl with problems of her own, things get complicated. Tiffany offers to help Pat reconnect with his wife, but only if he’ll do something very important for her in return. As their deal plays out, an unexpected bond begins to form between them, and silver linings appear in both of their lives..

Now here’s something I don’t see ever day – three movies have all had their release dates adjusted… by being moved up so that they can be seen sooner, rather than being delayed.

It’s weird.  Perhaps there’s something otherworldly going on here.  Good thing then that I can check out B.O.O.: BUREAU OF OTHERWORLDLY OPERATIONS starring Seth Rogen over a month earlier on September 25th, 2015 rather than its original release date of November 6th, 2015.

Watch Silver Linings Playbook Online Megavideo And as I’m sure you know, it always helps to have a playbook of different plans should something go wrong – sold out showing, disruptive traffic, no peanuts, what have you – so it’s a good thing then that SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK will hit five days earlier this month on November 16th rather than November 21st.  Which is next week, and by all accounts the latest entry from David O. Russell is not to be missed.

Watch Silver Linings Playbook Online Megavideo What’s interesting about the move of UNTITLED PEANUTS PROJECT is that in 2015, the 25th of November would have marked the 65th Anniversary of Peanuts’ debut, as well as the 50th Anniversary of the TV special “A Charlie Brown Christmas”. Now, the only thing special about its release date is that there will be some competition to be had with Marvel’s ANT-MAN.  Along those same lines, B.O.O.: BUREAU OF OTHERWORLDLY OPERATIONS currently has no competition for its release date while SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK will now open against ANNA KARENINA (in limited release), THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN (PART TWO), and PRICE CHECK.

Watch Silver Linings Playbook Online Megavideo PLOT: Against doctor’s orders, Pat (Bradley Cooper) a former high school teacher who was committed after a violent incident with his estranged wife, is bailed out the mental hospital by his mother Dolores (Jacki Weaver). She brings him home to stay with her and his father, Pat Sr., (Robert De Niro) who’s recently lost his job, and is making ends meet as a bookie. Determined to win back his wife, Pat embarks on a campaign of self-improvement, but is distracted by his young neighbour Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence)- a self-destructive young widow with a passion for ballroom dancing, who’s fixated on him.

REVIEW: Sometimes, you’re at a screening of a movie that just goes so damn well that you know it’ll be a smash in every sense of the word. This is especially true if the screening happens to be at 830 in the morning, for the very tired and jaded international press. But, from the laughter and applause throughout, it really felt like I was watching another UP IN THE AIR, and SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK is truly a film that’s playing on that level.

Based on the book by Matthew Quick, SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK is director David O. Russell’s follow-up to THE FIGHTER, and probably a film that will get him a best director Oscar nomination. Imagine a less wacky FLIRTING WITH DISASTER, mixed with the best work of Cameron Crowe and Jason Reitman, and you have an inkling of what this is.

The movie hinges on the performances of stars Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, who really seemed like a romantic miss-match to me when I heard they’d be playing the leads. Lawrence is 22 compared to Cooper’s 37, and she’s supposed to be playing a widow. Luckily, she can play older, and it’s her performance that’s getting the most buzz, as she seems like a shoo-in for an Oscar nod. She’s nutty, but never zany (an important distinction), acidly tart, but never bitchy, and conveys a certain intelligence and weariness that I didn’t think such a young actress could pull off.

As for Cooper, this is a tailor made part, with Russell bringing out the same manic energy from him that he was able to get from Mark Wahlberg back in I HEART HUCKABEES (a great performance in a so-so film). As Pat, Cooper doesn’t play him as totally-innocent, but rather conveys someone that truly is mentally ill, with his violent mood-swings being convincingly scary (going to far as to hit his mother in one scene). Yet- while he’s often an asshole, he’ll always have your sympathy.

Miracle of miracles, SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK also finally gives Robert De Niro a part that’s worthy of him as Cooper’s possibly OCD, sports bookie father (the Philadelphia Eagles play a big part here)- and De Niro seems to be relishing the material. Along with Jacki Weaver (in a total departure from her other maternal role in ANIMAL KINGDOM), he manages to pull a lot of layers out of a character that could have been two-dimensional, and it’s probably his best work in a decade.

Speaking of returns to form, Chris Tucker also has a rare role outside of the RUSH HOUR franchise as Cooper’s fellow mental patient, who escapes the hospital now and again to offer some amusing support. While he’s almost completely extraneous to the plot, he’s a welcome presence, and is very funny (he should make more movies- dude is talented).

Suffice to say, SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK is one you’ll all be hearing plenty about in the months to come. It’s a crowd-pleaser if I’ve ever seen one, and something that will have plenty of mileage come awards season. A best picture nomination seems a lock.
