I'm not usually a big Bradley Cooper fan (not an anti-fan, either, but he's not a big draw for me), but really did enjoy him here. Love Jennifer Lawrence (but like her better with light hair). Of course I love DeNiro, thought that it was genius to cast Julia Stiles and Jennifer Lawrence as sisters; loved Chris Tucker who is usually too manic for me but here, perfect. Loved Shea Whigham as DeNiro's son (looked like he could be), loved Jacki Weaver, loved the psychiatrist (actor and character) and the police officer (actor/character/concept. I wish there were such officers and hope that there are and if there are, please, God, make more of them. Many, many more.)
I think that the whole thing was great (if not a completely realistic view of mental illnesses, the legal and mental health system, and well, life) and am happy that they addressed bipolar disorder and mental illness in general and the havoc that can be caused and the efforts required to overcome.
As a side note, I see on the internet that Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence are paired again in a film scheduled to be released 2013 entitled Serena.
Also, Bradley Cooper is signed up for another project (un-named) with David O. Russel. I'm on board for that but have no interest in Hangover III.
