Hmmm. I love Bradley Cooper. He's a hottie. Well, not at the beginning of this movie for sure. Picture an uninspired writer, who looks like crap, feels like crap and doesn't write worth a crap who on a crappy day walks outside and runs into an old friend. This friend gives him a magical pill that gives him all the possibilities in life his brain has to offer catapulting him from down-on-his-luck-guy to on-top-of-the-world-super-bad-ass financial, genius. Too good to be true? True. Fun to watch, definitely. Except the violence just wasn't needed. The dark side should be represented because who really gets a free ride in life? Then again, it's just a movie so I think it should have been left on the cutting room floor. And I'm still pondering how a loser guy can have such a great girlfriend. But that's for another blog.
