This is a must-see, feel-good movie about an unlikely set of characters, mental health issues, the struggle for recovery & stable state and the search for love. Jackie Weaver, Bradley Cooper, Robert DeNiro & Jennifer Lawrence deliver Oscar-worthy performances.

I'm a 43 year old man who wanted a few brownie points with the wife. We had to drive a bit to see SLP, but it was worth it for MORE than just a few points. Believe the hype! This is an excellent movie!
Jennifer Lawrence deserves the Oscar. I would say the same of Bradley Cooper, but I just recently saw Lincoln, and it's in the bag for Daniel Day.
The Oscar for best pic is also in the bag for Lincoln (and I agree)....BUT, for pure entertainment (laughs and cries), and the pleasure of watching an almost Streep like performance (almost because nobody can touch Streep for pure ability), I would take SLP 10 outta 10 times. Move over Mila, the top of my free pass list now has J Lawrence in big bold letters. My wife was probably sorry she did not pick Breaking Dawn after hearing that news.

This movie made me happy. It was touching, unexpectedly funny and it had heart. The cast did an amazing job and it definitely deserves all the Oscar buzz it's been getting.

Two thumbs up!! A packed house in King Of Prussia laughed, cried, and cheered to this emotionally packed, well written, and superbly acted film. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence gave performances of a lifetime. Robert DeNiro was masterful in a supporting role. This story has a raw edge with little sugar coating. It's gritty. It's real. And it's a treat!! I've seen lots of films this year and Silver Lining Playbook sits with Argo and The Sessions as some of our favorite films of 2012.

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..
