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!

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!

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.

While the basic story line of this movie is nothing that hasn't been done a zillion different ways, the creativity of the characters, their development and the acting execution draws you in and holds you. You come to really like and root for the main characters, and there's that little sense of loss as the movie winds to an end, leaving you wanting more.

This is a fun movie. I loved the chemistry between Tiffany and Pat. This was a cute date movie. Tiffany and Pat were a little over the top, but a funny look at mental illness. DeNiro is always great and so was Delores his wife. I thought it was a great story that was played out well. I was surprised at the ending though.
