Thanksgiving Movie Guide: How To Choose Between Life Of Pi, Rise Of The Guardians, And More
When your family is so dysfunctional you need proof that somebody out there is worse: Silver Linings Playbook. It's already getting major Oscar buzz and almost uniformly great reviews, but the real boost of Silver Linings to your holiday is seeing the Solitano clan in all their ugly glory-- Pat Jr. (Bradley Cooper), Pat Sr. (Robert DeNiro) with his compulsive gambling, and mom (Jacki Weaver) attempting to hold it all together by making "crabby snacks and homemades." Your family may be crazier, but they're probably not this entertaining.
Best for: Grown-ups fond of indie comedies; working knowledge of NFL Football a plus.
Kind of like that time you all saw… Meet the Parents in 2000, and wished DeNiro was being a bit crazier.
