This movie was annoying and way too long. I feel like there was no climax, the story just builds and builds and then ends. I am definitely not going to see this again or recommend it to others.

Silver Linings Playbook was well played and well directed. Initially I wasn't sure I wanted to enter the world of a bi-polar man--but it was skillfully done and ended up being well worthwhile.

De Niro's performance is outstanding -- one of the best from a consummate actor. The rest of the ensemble are excellent, overcoming the problem of an ending that's happier than real life.
An audience of professionals gave his credit line a standing o, well earned..

Silver Linings Playbook is the absolute best movie to come out this year! It is a genuine crowd pleaser of a movie, filled with incredible performances and raw emotion interlaced with great comedy. Bradley Cooper is pinpoint perfect as Pat, a damaged man who is trying desperately to rebuild his life to re-win his estranged wife. But Jennifer Lawrence totally steals the entire movie as the equally emotionally damaged Tiffany. You will absolutely be in love with her by the time the movie is over. This may be the role that will give Lawrence the Academy Award for Best Actress. Also featuring Robert De Nero and Chris Tucker, this is one of these movies you want to see more than once, a film that I think is going to become an instant classic next to the likes of romantic comedies like "Moonstruck". I can't say it enough, you have to go see this movie for yourself! When you do, when it is over, you will leave the theater with a smile on your face! It is that damned good!

I only decided to watch this movie after the very high critic scores and rotten tomato rating. I had no idea what is was about. Silver Linings Playbook is a glimpse into a world that many people struggle with everyday and many others have no idea exists. There's a lot of good crazy and sad crazy in this movie.
Bradley Cooper plays a character you root for but your not sure if the outcome will be positive. There are definitely some uncomfortable moments that may make you cringe in your seat. I'm glad I saw this well done depiction of an unconventional love story and personal triumph over the inner demons many with mental disorders face everyday.
A lot is to be said of the acting in this movie. A job well done to the cast!
