For awhile it was Zooey Deschannel with old dudes. Jim Carrey, Mark Walhberg, Will Farrell etc. I mean, Cooper looks 40 and Lawrence is still convincingly playing teenagers. If I saw them together in real life I would assume he was her dad. But I'm just so used to it in movies that I don't even think about it anymore.

A lot of names involved that make for a viewing within the first two weeks of release. And Cooper is 17 years older than Lawrence. These things happen, folks.

...that you rarely see it the other way around, and if you do, that's ENTIRELY what the movie is about (How Stella Got Her Groove Back, White Palace, ect.). How often do you see actors in their forties and older paired romantically with women their own age? That's why I liked the 1999 remake of The Thomas Crown Affair...seeing a smoking-hot MILF 45-year-old Rene Russo cavorting nakedly with Pierce Brosnan instead of some 20-year-old fetus. I remember that Bullworth movie, with a 65-year-old (or whatever) Warren Beatty paired with a then-thirty-ish Halle Berry, and...ick.

Great, now I have to see this just so I know whose reviews to pay attention to in the future. In the past, I think I've agreed with Capone, but this could usher in a new era. Oh.....and I do take bribes.

...and can confirm Capone's review is pretty much spot on.

Jennifer Lawrence is a star on her way up. Bradley Cooper is interesting. David O.Russel has a great work history. I loved Three Kings and Flirting With Disaster. Never saw The Fighter. These days, unfortunately, you just can't tell with Robert DeNiro... Jacki Weaver is the real reason I will see this movie. I saw her in Animal Kingdom. She is 100% high quality and acting skill. Glad to hear this movie gives her something to work with.

Good review, Capone. Thanks. I've really liked Cooper since "Alias," and Lawrence definitely got my attention with her unbelievably powerful role as a teenager trying to save her family in the meth-addicted rural Ozarks in "Winter's Bone." I still get chills thinking about that. They're both very talented, versatile actors, no doubt about it. And it's great to read DeNiro brought his A-game for the first time in years. And what more can I say about David O. Russell? Loved "Three Kings" and I'll defnitely be seeing this.

Your taste in movies is so close to mine it is uncanny. I hope to meet you at Ebertfest one of these years.
