Silver Linings Playbook





You must be picked up by one of your very oldest and best friends in the world who has been out of town for months and you must park on the roof of the theater and run around scaring seagulls, exclaiming at the skyline and the dark clouds over the city and then watch the movie and laugh and cry in the movie and then walk in the light rain to a nearby bar, drink a glass of rubies (Zinfandel), eat some sweet potato fries and some spicy tuna on lettuce leaves and some of his macaroni and cheese and then drink a Blue Moon with a wedge of lemon while listening and telling secrets before walking back in light rain to your car and drive home.

You really must.

  1. your time spent with a dear friend is gloriously described. The movie looks good -- am I going to cry? Of course I am - that's what I do!

  6. ok, just writing back bc i viewed the trailer - seems WAY different than the book. the book is more dark. the father is a total shit and he and his relationship with the mom and the son never changes. Pat is not nearly as charismatic and the girl (forget her name) is totally Goth and seriously angry and warped. hmmmmm....

  8. I was going to avoid it, fearing a Manic Pixie Dream Girl. Perhaps I'll try it anyway. And read the book as well.
