Comedy Drama Romantic - This is a romantic comedy with some dark and quirky edges aimed at an adult audience. Fans of stars Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence will enjoy, while even more familiar stars Robert De Niro and Chris Tucker have choice supporting roles.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good I'm a sucker for a good romantic comedy, and this is the best I've seen in some time.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good 'Silver Linings Playbook' is so good, it could almost be a terrific old classic.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Very Good Still, Russell doesn't deprive the audience of old-fashioned pleasures, including that rousing show-stopper toward the end.

NY Post Full Review
Good But because of Lawrence, I just can't write off this movie. The way she inhabits an underwritten role is so amazing that, despite reservations, I can heartily recommend 'Silver Linings Playbook.'

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Life doesn't always go according to plan.

Pat Solitano (Bradley Cooper) has lost everything -- his house, his job, and his wife. He now finds himself living back with his mother (Jacki Weaver) and father (Robert DeNiro) after spending eight months in a state institution on a plea bargain. Pat is determined to rebuild his life, remain positive and reunite with his wife, despite the challenging circumstances of their separation. All Pat's parents want is for him to get back on his feet -- and to share their family's obession with the Philadelphia Eagles football team. When Pat meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a mysterious girl with problems of her own, things get complicated. Tiffany offers to help Pat reconnect with his wife, but only if he'll do something very important for her in return. As their deal plays out, an unexpected bond begins to form between them, and silver linings appear in both of their lives.
