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!

The ads for this movie made it seem like a comedy but it isn't. The first 15 mins. or so were mildly interesting, the last 20 mins. were ok, also. BUt through most of it my friend and I were both bored throughout most of it. The acting was superb, however.

Exceptional movie. it is a Tour De Force of unstoppable humanity in the face of emotional defeat. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence provide over the top performances and their chemistry is pure hot fusion. Bradley Cooper's portrayal of Pat Solatano is pure genius - he is that guy -- a bi-polar obsessive compulsive who just got out of a mental institution and is intent on getting his life back. Jennifer Lawrence is his mirror opposite and when the two get together for unfiltered conversation -- it moves you to a depth very rarely ever achieved in cinema. You have got to see this Movie!!!
