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

This might be one of the best movies I've ever seen. It was definitely the best of 2012. What a great story, great characters, great cast, and great acting. Love this.

What a great film! David O. Russell always seems to get the best out of his actors and this was a tour-de-force of great acting. This truly was an actors film. And we were all along for the ride. It's too bad that this film had to come out the same year as Lincoln, because Bradley Cooper deserved the Academy Award just as much as his co-star, Jennifer Lawrence, who won. Russell is so good getting the best out of his actors, that Chris Tucker gives a great performance.

I haven't even discussed the story. I first glance, this looks and feels just like your typical romantic comedy, but it's much more. I don't know anyone struggling with mental illness, but this made me feel the struggle of caring for someone afflicted with the disease.

This is a great film with some of the best ...

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...

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.
