A Philly hoot. Not what you expect at the start when you get to the finish. Reminded me of every Eagles season, and full of just the right amount of pathos to be truly enjoyable.

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.

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"...

My wife talked me into going. While the plot was somewhat predictable, the acting was quite good, especially Brad Cooper. I found myself engaged the entire 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!
