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.

Silver Linings was very engaging. I enjoyed seeing another side of Bradley Cooper. His character was very real and believable. The character played by Chris Tucker brought in a nice levity to break up what could be construed as a depressing plot at times. Robert De Niro played a very great character as well, All around it was an enjoyable time.

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!

Went to see this with my hubby...since football is a running theme in the movie he was interested. The movie was funny and I enjoyed the acting however way too many f bombs for me. (even my husband commented on that). Outside of that it was funny and I would recommend to go see it if you can deal with the cursing....my husband did say it was a good chick flick.

I thoroughly disliked the first hour of this movie. The rest was ok, but the payoff at the end was satisfying. Overall, I felt it was a contrived love story. It was unbelievable and interesting at the same time and the good cast couldn't win me over. Jennifer Lawrence is the only one that came close to outpacing prior performances. I was disappointed in this one, but the ending made it ok......thus the +.
