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.

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.

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.

The plot is a little all over the place but somehow it works. Jennifer Lawrence is magnetic...great to see her in this kind of role reminding us that sometimes a dance is enough to get us up to living when life has got us down. Bradley Cooper has a great performance as a romantic man struggling to get his life on track amongst his mental health issues. Robert Deniro as Cooper's father is great as he struggles to compensate for a lost pension (and lost relationship with his son) through a string of bets on his beloved Philadelphia Eagles.

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 +.
