A tour de force

Exceptional movie. it is a Tour De Force of unstoppable humanity in the face of emotional defeat. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence provide over the top performances and their chemistry is pure hot fusion. Bradley Cooper's portrayal of Pat Solatano is pure genius - he is that guy -- a bi-polar obsessive compulsive who just got out of a mental institution and is intent on getting his life back. Jennifer Lawrence is his mirror opposite and when the two get together for unfiltered conversation -- it moves you to a depth very rarely ever achieved in cinema. You have got to see this Movie!!!

This movie was annoying and way too long. I feel like there was no climax, the story just builds and builds and then ends. I am definitely not going to see this again or recommend it to others.

RUN TO SEE THIS 5 STAR FILM ABOUT LOSS, LIFE AND REDEMPTION.

It is a rarity, but it is nothing short of stupendous when a film exponentially gets better and better; David O. Russell's ("The Fighter") rocks the charts with this winner. Anticipation eliminated: "Silver Lining Playbook" garnishes five sterling STARS!!!!! I loved it... "Silver Lining Playbook" is profound in addressing life's cruel interruptions: loss of the known, love, and self; wounds heal but scars remain sacred, reminders of what's past but not determining, forecasting the future. Resonating with redemption, every character evolves, wordless introspectiveness morphs into rejuvenated, revived genuinely likeable even loveable individuals; striving, struggling within their natural sphere, all achieving their "personal best"... FIVE STARS!!!!! ***For full review please visit peneflix(dot)com!!!

I went to see this last night in NY not really knowing what to expect. I read a few things previously, then saw Bradley Cooper doing a tv promo and decided to definitely check it out. I loved it and thought it was funny and quirky and heartfelt and different. It made me feel like I was seeing something more unique than the usual movie fare, and I go to the movies often. The cast was great - I kind of fell in love with Bradley Cooper (he was really good in this role) and it was nice to see Jennifer Lawrence in something completely different after seeing her in "Hunger Games." Robert DeNiro was also very good, I liked seeing a more vulnerable side of him in the "dad" role. I really wish Chris Tucker was used more, he is funny and his role was too limited to me. The entire supporting cast shined in the group scenes especially. I actually may go see this again next week. It really stayed with me for some reason, I think because it showed flawed people in all their beautiful glory.
