I’m a big fan of dramedies in general, so seeing this was going to happen for me either way at some point. Then I saw that Chris Tucker was actually going to be in a movie that wasn’t part of the Rush Hour franchise and I was even more intrigued. Seriously, Chris Tucker won’t step foot on to a movie set for anything less than a Rush Hour payday around 30 million or so, but yet he chose to be in this little movie with Katniss Everdeen, Bradley Cooper and Robert DeNiro.
This Chris Tucker angle is what led me to convince my friends that Life of Pi could wait, because if Chris Tucker thought this movie was worth doing then Avatar 2 could wait.
Silver Linings Playbook stars Bradley Cooper as Pat Solitano. A relatively normal guy who snaps one day when he walks in on his wife and her colleague in the shower. He then proceeds to do what any normal guy would do and mercilessly beats the guy to within an inch of his life. To avoid jail he pleas out and gets a stay in an insitution.
