This week we tear apart David O. Russell’s 2012 film that was nominated for eight Oscars, “Silver Linings Playbook.” Bradley Cooper plays a guy who gets out of a mental institution and tries to get his wife back, until he meets Jennifer Lawrence’s character and they start dancing or something.
We wonder why on earth this pile of **** that’s essentially just an unfunny sports movie was nominated for EIGHT Academy Awards and how JLaw won the Oscar for Best Actress. We also discuss unprofessional therapists, restraining orders, the seemingly-everywhere Cheshire Cat-like cop character, and how Robert De Niro’s desire to make bad movies seems almost as strong as his belief that vaccines cause autism.
