I like David O. Russell. With this and The Fighter he's kind of shown himself to be the type of director that can tweak genre cliches enough to make them feel fresh again. SLP is definitely predictable and follows the usual beats of a romantic comedy for the most part, but Russell (and the cast) is talented enough to elevate the material into something enjoyable.
