So I dropped my son off for a four hour soccer meeting in a far away town. As a dad it was a movie playing so I decided to try it. Five minutes in I was wishing I had gone to a bar. Thirty minutes in I was committed and by the end I wanted to take my wife this weekend. I can't believe how excellent the acting was. I had no idea that Bradley Cooper could act after seeing him in very limited roles. I don't know if this is what an academy award picture looks like but it should.
