HOUSE AT THE END OF THE STREET Still 3

As Hollywood anoints Jennifer Lawrence as the Next Big Thing, there’s some unfinished business to tend to before she bathes in her “Hunger Games” franchise success or tastes Oscar glory with the upcoming “Silver Linings Playbook,” and its name is “House at the End of the Street.” Shot before her stint as Katniss in “The Hunger Games,” this B-list thriller reminds the world of more humble time for the actress, when she had to take any job that slipped into view, establishing her name with traditional genre career steps. It’s a terrible picture, but it’s hard to fault the star for its failure, as she delivers a performance best described as “embarrassed,” while the rest of the effort dissolves into an insipid bore with nearly a third of its running time devoted to an easily escapable situation. I hope Lawrence takes some time today to hug her “Catching Fire” producers for her good fortune. Read the rest at Blu-ray.com
