'Silver Linings Playbook' Trailer: Bradley Cooper & Jennifer Lawrence Go Mental for Each Other

Jun 28, 2012

Silver Linings Playbook coverThe first trailer for David O. Russell’s adaptation of Matthew Quick’s novel The Silver Linings Playbook has officially launched, and you can check it out below.

Bradley Cooper headlines as a former teacher who spent several years in a mental institution and then moves in with his family in an attempt to put his life back together. Things get interesting when he starts developing a relationship with his neighbor (Jennifer Lawrence) – a woman with mental problems of her own.

Featuring a big-name cast that includes Cooper, Lawrence, Robert De Niro, and Chris Tucker, the debut clip looks pretty entertaining, although a bit “sugary.” We guess that’s sort of expected when you label your film as a “family drama comedy and love story” – which is such a mouthful that it doesn’t even have a cutesy abbreviated form like “dramedy.” Maybe they can call it a “famdramromcomedy.” I can totally see that catching on…

At any rate, Silver Linings Playbook opens on November 21st – just in time to generate potential buzz for awards season. Please take a look at the clip below and let us know what you think.
