Bradley Cooper is impressive.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed by Jake Wilson It's dismaying to see mental illness used as the 'hook' for a Hollywood romantic comedy.

    With every review of this film I read, I grow more and more incredulous at how this appallingly written and mostly-terribly acted film could be considered a serious Oscar contender. The final half hour of SLP should be shown at film schools as an example of how to NOT try to conclude a film and as an example of how to avoid embarrassing, cringe-inducing moments as a filmmaker. David O Russell used to be such an interesting filmmaker but with this, he steps over the abyss and into a world from which I doubt there's any comeback. If you want a film that laughs at mental illness and suggests that serious mental illnesses can be treated by dance contests, then this one is for you. For me, it's nothing short of abysmal.
