I'm working on a couple of posts, but neither of them is cooperating, so I figured I'd share my passing thoughts about Silver Linings Playbook, which I finally saw this past weekend.
When two characters are arguing over football teams, and one character roots for Dallas and the other roots for Philly, then when the first one asks, "What's more American than cowboys?" the only appropriate response is "I don't know, bald eagles?" Talk about a missed opportunity!
It's really weird to be watching a movie where you recognize a lot of the outdoor locations, enough to say, "I really miss that place!" Or "We drive down that street when we are going to tea." Or "Look, I know it's a movie, but there is no way anyone could walk from that place to that other place!"
Also, you get excited about the characters going to the Limerick Diner. Because that place was the best.
