Entertaining, but begs the question why a biopic of one of Hollywood's greatest directors was put in the hands of one of its greenest.

The 3D animation is outstanding, and the spectacle of rival, familiar, holiday characters out of their usual context is fun to watch.
It's anything but a typical romantic comedy. Silver Linings Playbook is more like that genre's slightly unhinged cousin.
Even those not interested in surfing won’t mind spending two hours in the company of these characters because they feel so true to life.
Like a violent dream you're thankful isn't real, this film is simply too demented for any real, meaningful takeaway value.
