Uh, is it us or is the new Silver Linings Playbook trailer really burying the lead on the most important aspect of the movie: the fact that (at least part of) it is a Jennifer Lawrence/Bradley Cooper dance movie? This is not a (dance) drill, people! According to IMDB, the film’s plot could be summed up thusly: “After spending four years in a mental institution, a former teacher moves back in with his mother and tries to reconcile with his ex-wife.” There is literally no mention of a sexy dance competition or sexy dance rehearsals or sexy dance sexing at all! We feel like we’re taking crazy pills here! Crazy pills that make us hallucinate Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence tangoing in there sweatpants in someone’s garage!
Oh, and Robert De Niro, Julia Stiles and Chris Tucker also costar in the film. They’re great, but not as great as sport bra dance flirting!
Annnnnnnnd Jennifer Lawrence’s dance costume has a sequined belt, which just feels right.
Which brings us to the dance floor kissing! Do you think Julia Stiles shed a single tear while on set, just thinking about how Save the Last Dance changed the world for the better? We’re going to assume the answer…is yes.
