David O. Russell's newest film stars Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert DeNiro & Louis C.K.

It's about . . . well, who cares? With that cast, you're seeing it anyway.

It's a (fictionalized?) version of Abscam, with Bale playing Mel Weinberg, the con man the FBI hired to run the sting. Formerly known as American Bullshit, a script that was on the famous Black List a few years back.

David O Russell has made nothing but hacky Oscar-bait bullshit since THREE KINGS.

Just saw this film. It was great. Yeah, Jennifer Lawrence is winning another Oscar. Amy Adams set the record for total amount of side-boob in a film. She looked ridiculous. Everyone gave a rather strong performance. I wonder how much better this movie would've been if Scorsese directed it.... It felt very Scorseseian.

My sleeper performance? Louis C.K. He was great! Didn't look out of place at all. And he was in a good chunk of the film.

I've heard several reviewers compare it to Goodfellas. Was that the vibe you got from it?

Indeedydoo. Very Goodfellas vibe with 95% less violence and 1,000% more side boob.

This movie is worth seeing if only for all the free swinging boobies.

If I had to go by just the trailer I'd pass.

But Ive seen a few better ones out there.

Bradley Cooper looks like Ed Quinn (Nathan Stark) from Eureka.
