Movie Review: Silver Linings Playbook

(12/11/12 1:07am)

Several scenes in “Silver Linings Playbook,” David O. Russell’s new blend of comedy, drama and romance, start in one place and end in quite another, both literally and figuratively. A casual dinner of Raisin Bran and tea turns into a heated but darkly funny altercation on a city street. A heavily foreshadowed reunion proves to be underwhelming for both characters involved. An opening scene set in a state institution promises a goofy, cliché-ridden comedy mockery of mental illness that never arrives.
