A pinch of glitter, some polyester, an infusion of jazz funk and a 1970's scam outrageous enough to knock the American Dream on its ear - David O. Russell's new movie is a whole lotta fun. Christian Bale and Amy Adams are Jersey schemers who team up with an FBI agent (Bradley Cooper) to trap politicians on the take. Riffing on the Abscam scandal of the late 70s, this farce shows some heart with the emotion-charged performance of Jennifer Lawrence. As Christian Bale's neglected younger wife who turns into a loose cannon, she is:
"Hilarious and brassy, by turns reminiscent of Jean Harlow and Judy Holliday - Ms. Lawrence is a bountiful delight."
