Wonderful story. Mental illness is rarely addressed in movies. Hope they show more of it in the future. We do have a lot of people with personality disorders that should be depicted in movies. The acting and the character development (Philli Eagle Fans) was superb. Jennifer Lawrence is a sexy fox!. My only negative is the use of the f---k word, whore and other crude comments, etc--- way too much. Crude, rude words were, in my opinion, often added to just shock the viewer. I supect the producers thought it would also be funny-I did not. It would have been a much better movie if less of the vulgur language was used in the dialogue. Then when it was used it would had a greater impact! I hope most Philli fans and families do not talk that crudely and rudely-at least I hope so.
Otherwise, a great funny, lovable movie with a great ending. My wife and I loved it!

We had seen previews, heard interviews and decided we need to check this movie out. Bradley Cooper is an amazing Actor. Each one of us said he needs to be nominated for an Academy Award. Jennifer Lawrence was excellent and held her own. and it is always a treat to watch Robert DeNiro
A great script, great acting. Do not miss this movie. See it in a theater.

Silver Linings Playbook is moving, perceptive, not too sentimental or slapstick, well edited, unexpected, laugh-out-loud, heartbreaking and true. Lots of opportunies to go off the tracks here, but miraculously, it never happens. Go and have a wonderful time!

A very different yet interesting movie. All the characters in this movie were excellent, from the leads down to the rest of the cast. Jennifer lawrence was great and Bradley Cooper can leave the dumb comedies behind him after this movie. I also though Robert DeNiro was very good and his mother was wonderful.

Good story well told. Whole new side of Bradley Cooper, and Jennifer Lawrence is sensational--she is likely to get Oscar nom for this part. DeNiro is best we have seen in a long time. Funny, poignant, and good look into dealing with mental challenges too.
I loved it.
