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 partner for an upcoming competition. It was when they started training that their romance and chemistry started to take off. They became closer and closer and the actors pulled off the believability. On top of the interaction between Pat and Tiffany you have Pat Sr'a obsession with the remotes and Chris Rock being Chris Rock. The late night books through the window and the final dance off were also more amusing then they would have been in other movies. Russell is a genius who is able to make this movie work. He was the knack for directing these kinds of movies. He perfectly emulates what he wants done and the cast is good at following him. Jennifer Lawrence I think shines the most because her character is the more psychologically damaged of the two and I don't think Brad could out crazy Jennifer. So that being said this was a very satisfying romantic comedy with character depth and plot devices that made it more then just a rom com
