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.

This is a fun movie. I loved the chemistry between Tiffany and Pat. This was a cute date movie. Tiffany and Pat were a little over the top, but a funny look at mental illness. DeNiro is always great and so was Delores his wife. I thought it was a great story that was played out well. I was surprised at the ending though.

We loved the movie! I was surprised more people were not in the theater on it's opening weekend, but it was also Breaking Dawn 2, and Lincoln opening weekend. I saw BD2 on Thursday night, and if I'd let my hubby choose, he would have chosen Lincoln. So hopefully everyone will go see it next weekend! It's super cute!

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.

Went to see this with my hubby...since football is a running theme in the movie he was interested. The movie was funny and I enjoyed the acting however way too many f bombs for me. (even my husband commented on that). Outside of that it was funny and I would recommend to go see it if you can deal with the cursing....my husband did say it was a good chick flick.
