It is a rarity, but it is nothing short of stupendous when a film exponentially gets better and better; David O. Russell's ("The Fighter") rocks the charts with this winner. Anticipation eliminated: "Silver Lining Playbook" garnishes five sterling STARS!!!!! I loved it...
"Silver Lining Playbook" is profound in addressing life's cruel interruptions: loss of the known, love, and self; wounds heal but scars remain sacred, reminders of what's past but not determining, forecasting the future. Resonating with redemption, every character evolves, wordless introspectiveness morphs into rejuvenated, revived genuinely likeable even loveable individuals; striving, struggling within their natural sphere, all achieving their "personal best"...

Silver Linings Playbook is moving, perceptive, not too sentimental or slapstick, well edited, unexpected, laugh-out-loud, heartbreaking and true. Lots of opportunies to go off the tracks here, but miraculously, it never happens. Go and have a wonderful time!

My wife talked me into going. While the plot was somewhat predictable, the acting was quite good, especially Brad Cooper. I found myself engaged the entire time.

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.

Silver Linings was very engaging. I enjoyed seeing another side of Bradley Cooper. His character was very real and believable. The character played by Chris Tucker brought in a nice levity to break up what could be construed as a depressing plot at times. Robert De Niro played a very great character as well, All around it was an enjoyable time.
