We took a little hiatus from the Name That Flicks during the Olympics, mostly because I couldn’t tear myself away from the screen. The Olympics were such a welcome distraction this summer! I never knew I could care about beach volleyball and archery and fencing and kayaking and judo as much as I did. What a rush!
But now we’re back and we have a real thumper for you today. It has everything: pretty people, big stars, Oscar noms, the whole nine.
For those of you new to this particular Olympic sport, there’s nothing to it. I list actors, you call the movie.
We jump in with the multi-faceted Jennifer Lawrence. Most people know her as Katniss Everdeen (my teenage cousin calls her Catpiss Neverclean), but did you see her in Winter’s Bone? It was amazing.
This flick, today, is not Winter’s Bone.
God! Look at those eyes. I can’t tell if that’s photoshopped at all but those eyes are gorgeous. Usually I only add one image per actor, but I have to add one more because it cracked me up.
I know that’s a shoot for what appears to be a stylish outfit, but all I see is a banana. That’s all I see.
Okay! Moving on, let’s add veteran character actor Shea Whigham…
…and long-time funnyman Chris Tucker. I once visited my sister while she was in the Peace Corps and the kids at her site could not stop watching Rush Hour. They loved Chris Tucker.
Now let’s drop in much-loved Australian actor Jacki Weaver.
And the talented but somehow polarizing Julia Stiles. People either love Julia Stiles or hate her. I’ve never figured out why. If you’re a lukewarm Julia Stiles fan, please comment and explain. I’d be so curious to know if you exist.
So that’s a lot of actors. Do you have the flick yet? Because there are two more clues and then this pumpkin turns into a carriage and takes Cinderella to the Oscars.
Robert De Niro. (Ever heard of him? He’s been in some stuff.)
And last but not least, Bradley Cooper.
And the famous, fastidious, fascinating flick is…
Silver Linings Playbook!
