Synopsis: A writer at the peak of his literary success discovers the steep price he must pay for stealing another man’s work
Release Date: September 21, 2012
Thoughts: You gotta give it to Bradley Cooper, the man could easily rest on his laurels and take every action film or dopey comedy that comes his way. Instead, Cooper takes a road less traveled and attaches himself to movies that might otherwise be a tough sell. While The Words does have its share of appealing actors, the success or failure of it will fall to Cooper’s shoulders as he navigates a movie that looks to have equal amounts of romance and drama. Arriving as the summer fades from memory, The Words is another test of Cooper’s appeal as a draw for moviegoers. He parlayed 2011’s Limitless to a modest box office hit and could very well have another sleeper on his hands.
