I couldn't wait to see that movie and I have absolutely no regrets! The acting was terrific coupled with a solid story and happy ending. Bradley Cooper is great as well as Robert De Niro, Jennifer Lawrence and Jackie Weaver. I can see some Oscar nominations especially for Cooper, Lawrence and De Niro. Well, this movie definitely shows off Cooper's versatility and the fact that he shouldn't be confined in comedies ala Hangover.
Special shout-out to Chris Tucker who has a couple of hilarious scenes and funny lines. Overall, great movie.

My husband didn't want to see this movie thinking it was a chick flick. I kept telling him it wasn't. Finally giving in since I always go to the movies he wants to see, he agreed to go. He really liked it. It has appeal to both men an women. Great acting by Bradley Cooper, De Niro, and Jennifer Lawrence. Walked out of the theatre feeling good..

SILVER ININGS PLAYBOOK. A great movie and really enjoyed it when my wife and I saw it last week. It was a good reward as a birthday celebration for me.

This movie goes through all the stages of dealing with an adult who has emotional problems. It is a bit difficult to watch in the beginning, especially because it may bring up feelings that one has previously held and/or dealt with. It is very well acted and the resolution seems to be very difficult to reach. The movie held our interest and the resolution satisfied us both.

I love both Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence and they both do a very nice job in this movie. However, the subject is a serious one and both Cooper and Lawrence are simply too polished and attractive to adequately portray these characters. Second, it comes off as a comedy which it really shouldn't be. I was shocked at times when the audience laughed at scenes that were quite distressing.
Nevertheless, as in most Hollywood movies, things tidy up in the end and everyone lives happily ever after. Also great for seeing scenes shot in Philadelphia.
