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.

I went to see this last night in NY not really knowing what to expect. I read a few things previously, then saw Bradley Cooper doing a tv promo and decided to definitely check it out. I loved it and thought it was funny and quirky and heartfelt and different. It made me feel like I was seeing something more unique than the usual movie fare, and I go to the movies often. The cast was great - I kind of fell in love with Bradley Cooper (he was really good in this role) and it was nice to see Jennifer Lawrence in something completely different after seeing her in "Hunger Games." Robert DeNiro was also very good, I liked seeing a more vulnerable side of him in the "dad" role. I really wish Chris Tucker was used more, he is funny and his role was too limited to me. The entire supporting cast shined in the group scenes especially. I actually may go see this again next week. It really stayed with me for some reason, I think because it showed flawed people in all their beautiful glory.

Probably Bradley Cooper's best...

My partner and I decided to see this movie after watching a pre-release interview with Bradley Cooper. It sounded interested (plus we're from the Philadelphia area) so we decided to find a theater showing it. As there was only one movie theater showing it in our area with only three times available, we were a little wary of just how good this movie would be. The good news was that it was a great little movie with some believable performances by Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and Robert DeNiro. As a young man dealing with bi-polar depression, Cooper came across as the real deal as he struggles to get his life together after a court-mandated stay at a Baltimore psychiatric hospital. Lawrence plays another character dealing with her own demons after the accidental death of her policeman husband. The two of them meet and the real story begins. Put this movie on your "to do" list...it will definitely be a good addition.

Romantic, Funny, Realistic

My wife and I alternate choosing which movie to see - this was her turn. However, I was more than pleasantly surprised. This was not an ordinary "chick-flick". This movie was real - you could imagine the scenario playing out exactly as depicted - and the characters were super developed and "true to life". The movie nailed the adult child moving back in to older parents as well as crazed football families and Italian households. I love happy endings, and this movie did not disappoint! Enjoy.
