It was hysterical and heartwarming while being incredibly dramatic and intense at the same time. There were parts I thought that my heart was going to shoot out of my chest.
Bradley Cooper reached an entire new level. He's gorgeous and just one look on his face and you are transported to his side of the story. Same with Jennifer Lawrence. Both actors are perfect.
It's so real and this is an especially perfect movie for anyone with mental instabilities.

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!

Beautiful writing, superb screenplay, fabulous acting and actors. This film holds your attention the whole time. The dialogue is quirky, true to Iife and funny. Tear jerker? Go see it and find out...

It is no wonder the critics love this monumental piece of TRASH. It is so full of sick and twisted characters that it becomes evident in the first 20 minutes that the entire story is unfeasible. Jennifer Lawrence's face was SO FULL of BOTOX I thought it would explode at any moment. Once again, Robert De Niro stretches to play a role, and ends up playing Robert De Niro! (Come on! As hard as he tries, he can't act past himself.) BUT, the real low point of this movie was when Cooper stands in front of a print of Jesus hanging on the wall behind him and lets out a long chorus of vulgar profanity. Yes, maybe I am a prude but I don't find it necessary to pollute a script with fowl language to make a good movie., I wonder how the World would react if it had been a Muslim image with the same use of words!

Didn't cry during "Lincoln." Didn't cry during "Argo." Didn't see Les Miz. Cried when Jennifer Lawrence heard Bradley Cooper tell her he loved her. Damn! That's a great movie!
