SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK ½

(Comcast Movie Collections: Just In) Bradley Cooper finally gets a role that gives his oily charm some vulnerability. He plays a mental patient living in Philadelphia with his parents, hung up on his estranged wife and spending time with an equally unstable woman (Jennifer Lawrence). The movie whizzes and stings. Its director is David O. Russell, who’s become Hollywood’s most instinctive maker of ensemble dramatic comedies. With a never-haler Robert De Niro as Cooper’s gambler dad. (R; runs through Sept. 20)

Wesley Morris

THE GUILT TRIP ½

(Comcast Movie Collections: Just In) Barbra Streisand as a noodgy mom and Seth Rogen as a stressed-out son in a tiny car driving across America. It’s silly, predictable, and surprisingly sweet — the sort of thing you can and probably should take your own mother to. The stars are believable as parent and child, but who’s the father, Fozzie Bear? (PG-13; runs through Sept. 19)

Ty Burr

TOTAL RECALL

(Starz on Comcast) Arnold Schwarzenegger goes to Mars, where his enemies discover they can play games with his mind, but not his trigger finger. Great sci-fi visuals, also nice perverse wit and atmosphere, undermined by blood-drenched and brutal action-movie clichés. (R; runs through Aug. 31)
