A really good comedy drama with fine actors, De Niro is funny... Cooper is funny and likeable... along with the sexy Jennifer Lawrence, who won the oscar. Although i think that should have went to Cooper

Jennifer Lawrence is the silver lining.

I have to admit, I didn’t think much about this comedy, romance movie at first. I was getting a little bored with the bipolar antics of Pat (Bradley Cooper), and the denial drenched, obsessive compulsive disorder behavior of Pat Sr. (Robert De Niro). Even zany Danny (Chris Tucker), with his multiple personalities and psychiatric hospital breaks, was coming off as stuffy. That is until Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence) cleared the air and the dinner table at the diner, with that unforgettable release of righteous indignation. After all, who’s crazier? The self admitted loony, or the loony who thinks he’s normal? Even though I think the world could benefit from seeing less movies that have a happy ending for the lovers involved (Am I the only one who’s tired of happy endings in movies? After all,...

The rom-com we've been waiting for.

Bradley Cooper, where have you been all these years?

Another comedy classic for the future, written and directed by David O. Russell (Three Kings, I Heart Huckabees, The Fighter) and starring Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro, Jacki Weaver and… CHRIS TUCKER?
The story is about Pat Solitano, Jr., an undiagnosed bi-polar, who was the victim of a mental breakdown after catching his wife in the shower with his colleague.
Jennifer Lawrence plays Tiffany Maxwell, a young woman with similar problems in her life.
I'll say it right off the bat: This movie is phenomenal.
The script is quirky, funny, warm-hearted and hits the line between comedy and drama perfectly.
The acting is purely authentic. Bradley Cooper had a really good year in 2012; with this film and The Place Bey...

Welcome Rom Com

Silver Lining's Playbook: 4.5/5

Pat Salitano is a man burdened down by mental disorders and the nasty divorce he went through. An 8 month stay in the psych ward is believed to be just the right remedy for Pat and with that he is released. The biggest thing making an impact on his mind is this notion that he can get his wife back. While reconnecting with some old friends he meets a girl who is willing to help him get back in touch his estranged wife. Now Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence are perfect for this movie. They essentially live and breath the characters they play. The diner scene was one of the most well written, acted, and directed scenes of the entire film. So back to the story. Tiffany offers to help Pat get a letter to his wife but he would need to become her dance partn...

I had the opportunity to see this early, and while I post my review quite yet, I can say that if you're looking for a date movie - this is the one. Forget those fluffy pieces of nothing that I usually associate romantic comedies with - this has comedy, drama and, most importantly, excellent casting. My rating stands and I wouldn't be surprised to see it up for a few awards.
