    Silver Linings Playbook
    David O. Russell's Silver Linings Playbook stars Bradley Cooper as Pat, a bipolar man from Philadelphia who has spent the last eight months in a mental hospital. He was ordered there after a violent incident involving his wife and another man. Pat moves in with his father (Robert De Niro), a lifelong Eagles fans who has low-level OCD issues. Pat wants to get back together with his wife, even though there is a restraining order keeping him from contacting her. He soon befriends Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a depressed young woman who's mourning the death of her husband by engaging in compulsive sex with almost everyone she meets; she also knows his wife and offers to deliver a letter of his to her if he acts as her partner in a local dance competition. Silver Linings Playbook screened at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

      Silver Linings Playbook - One of 2012's Best Films

      Written and directed by David O. Russell (The Fighter), Silver Linings Playbook is based on the 2008 novel by Matthew Quick and stars (Bradley Cooper) as Pat Solitano, a troubled man who has lost everything – his house, his job, and his wife. After spending eight months in a Baltimore mental institution, Pat finds himself back in Philadelphia, living with his mother (Jacki Weaver) and father (Robert De Niro). Despite a restraining order, Pat is determined to remain positive, rebuild his life, and reunite with his estranged wife Nikki (Brea Bee). Meanwhile, Pat’s parents hope he’ll get back on his feet and take part in the family’s obsession with the Philadelphia Eagles. Things take an unexpected turn when he meets kindred crazy person Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a young woman trying to cope with her husband’s death by sleeping with everyone at her work. Pat and Tiffany bond over their issues and idiosyncrasies, with ‘crazy person’ topics like the types of medication they’ve taken. Tiffany offers to help Pat reconnect with his wife, but only if he’ll return the favor by doing something very important for her – be her partner in a freestyle dance competition. Silver Linings Playbook is a delightful, uplifting film that soars on incredible performances. Jacki Weaver (Animal Kingdom) delivers a realistic portrayal of a worried, protective mother while DeNiro’s Pat Sr. is a bookmaker and sports fanatic, obsessively arranging his television remotes and rubbing his lucky handkerchief during Eagles games. This is the best DeNiro has been since the mid-nineties. Sure, he was a funny caricature in films like Meet the Parents and Machete, but here he plays a living, breathing person who buries his emotions and attempts to bond with his troubled son over watching the game. A father unable to express his emotions, Pat Sr. is forced to confront his son and in turn, open up and address some of his own emotional hangups. DeNiro deserves Best Supporting Actor for this role and I sincerely hope the Academy recognizes him for his work here. Cooper and Lawrence display versatility and surprising range in their performances as imperfect people searching for a silver lining. Usually with romantic comedies, the reasons for love are inherent: Katherine Heigl is super attractive, Gerard Butler is super attractive – they should hook up (so I can watch). But here, there is a real, palpable chemistry between Cooper and Lawrence – they need each other, and we love watching them repair each other’s broken heart and mind… and of course they’re drop-dead gorgeous and sexy as all get-out, so that doesn’t hurt either. Silver Linings Playbook is one of the best films of the year – and a great followup to David O. Russell’s 2010 film, The Fighter. I think it gets nominated across the board, from acting to Adapted Screenplay, Director, and Best Picture. A humorous, relatable journey into all matters of the heart, Silver Linings Playbook is a reminder that we’ve all got baggage and problems and stuff to worry about – but we can get past it and find things that make life worth living.

      Against medical advice and without the knowledge of her husband Pat Solatano Sr., caring Dolores Solatano discharges her adult son, Pat Solatano Jr., from a Maryland mental health institution after his minimum eight month court ordered stint. The condition of the release includes Pat Jr. moving back in with his parents in their Philadelphia home. Although Pat Jr.'s institutionalization was due to him beating up the lover of his wife Nikki, he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Nikki has since left him and has received a restraining order against him. Although he is on medication (which he doesn't take because of the way it makes him feel) and has mandatory therapy sessions, Pat Jr. feels like he can manage on the outside solely by healthy living and looking for the "silver linings" in his life. His goals are to get his old job back as a substitute teacher, but more importantly reunite with Nikki. He finds there are certain instances where he doesn't cope well, however no less so than some others who have never been institutionalized, such as his Philadelphia Eagles obsessed OCD father who has resorted to being a bookie to earn a living, his best friend Ronnie who quietly seethes over the control wielded by his wife Veronica, and Veronica's widowed sister, Tiffany Maxwell. In their fragile mental states, Pat Jr. and Tiffany embark on a love/hate friendship based primarily on what help the other can provide in achieving their individual goals. But they may reevaluate their goals as their relationship progresses.

      SUCKS!!!

      OK who even said this movie is even OK must have lost their mind. This movie was overall terrible/boring. Like from the beginning to the end and to think this was even considered and nominated for OSCARS/ACADEMY awards for best actress. Jennifer Lawrence did not bring it home for me at all!!! Like the dancing part was so awful and insulting to me, being a dancer who respects proper performance, was tunneled in total darkness that the writer would even allow that type of performance to be a part of the movie. BTW, if it wasn't for Robert De Niro, this movie wouldn't even have come home with me (since I'm a fan). And you know what, Robert De Niro was the only thing going for this movie. Comparing to other nominees like the little 8 year old (Quvenzhane' Wallis) who totally rocked it out and came through for her age. I would have totally given her the VOTE AND OSCAR even never having had experience before (a star was BORN). And don't let me go to other movies like COLD MOUNTAIN, OH AND THE IMPOSSIBLE FOR starters who literally made me ROCK AND SHAKE. You know what even Stevie Wonder/Ray Charles would agree with me (all jokes aside). Like this didn't even have a story line that made sense. Too bad I had to give even one star cause this doesn't even deserve one star :( #*%$!/?#%&..........

      Superb Blu-ray Transfer for this Excellent Film

      Silver Linings Playbook is an exceptionally crafted film, and one of the better releases in 2012. All the characters are represented with their various quirks and flaws, giving them the depth needed to make this tale about two genuinely damaged people so engaging. If you haven't seen it yet, I would highly recommend it. In the romantic comedy vein, it will appeal to anyone who likes their movies generally uplifting. On the technical side of things, the Blu-ray reproduction is brilliant. No grain is to be found in this film, with spectacular detail on close-ups and even background objects. There is a bit of a dark crush in some of the darker scenes, but it isn't overpowering. On the audio side, this is a dialogue heavy film as many films in the genre tend to be. With that said, there isn't much surround action going on here. The surround effects only really kick in with the music, but the dialogue is clear and crisp and the mix is solid for this type of movie. In summary, if you like romantic comedies, or just stories about people overcoming their own failings to find happiness with one another, I think you'll enjoy this film.

      A near perfect movie, many times rewatchable

      Siliving Linings Playbook was my 2nd favorite film of 2012, it followed right behind Django Unchained. This movie is absolutely brilliant, just wonderful. It is rewatchable in every way, I even saw it three times in theaters. The acting is top notch, it has a beautiful touching story, and is really really funny. Jennifer Lawrence deserved her Best Actress Oscar by far for this. Bradley Cooper's best acting and best character to date. And the blu ray is almost perfect as well. The picture quality? Fantastic. The sound? Pitch perfect. Extras include makings of, deleted scenes, the only thing I would've wanted was a commentary by Lawrence, but she's a busy actress, so I understand. THIS FILM IS A MUST BUY. Even though it is rated R, it really is a family film for those families with kids already grown into their twenties. The movie made my father cry at the end, and almost made me. Just brilliant.

      A very interesting and "different" movie

      I loved this movie. The story and the characters are "different" and the acting is great. I think It is important for all of us to get more familiar and comfortable around people who are "different" from us. The 2 main characters in this movie, I believe, have bi-polar disorders; and "bi-polar" is a type of "mental illness." Maybe "mental illness" just means "different," at least sometimes. I loved these two characters and I loved the way they were. They didn't seem "ill" to me, they just seemed "different" and interesting--more "colorful" than most people. Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper were both great in portraying these "quirky" and--to me, lovable--individuals. I am so happy that I have this Blu Ray in my collection. That way I can enjoy it repeatedly. I found it at a great price on the Best Buy website.

      An overall strong movie!

      This movie, although a comedy, has an emotional theme about finding good in your life when you are so psychologically damaged. It is about finding a silver lining when there's hardly anything good happening in your life because of the challenges that having a mental disorder has imposed on you and your future. Bradley Cooper did a good job playing his character although there were times when he was acting way too one dimentional. The good thing about it is that Jennifer Lawrence balanced it out and allowed Cooper to shine especially when the two of them are at a scene together. I wish that the movie could have given us more background about the disease and allowed us to see more of the past from both of these characters. All in all, the movie is highly enjoyable and the pairing of both Cooper and Lawrence work strong enough for this movie to be a truly feel good and warm movie of 2012.

      Clutsy Heartfelt Rom-Com

      If you like seeing on film characters that seem real life, enjoy romantic themes and a fresh somewhat comical look at two unlikely mates - this is the film for you. While the character Jennifer Lawrence plays is not going to be everyone's cup of tea, she does an outstandingly true portral of this undesirable. The hidden jewel in the movie and unsung hero is actually Bradley Cooper who battles his way back to mental health. I watched this movie when tired and found myslef dozing off in a couple of long passages - but rewatched it when freshly rested and enjoyed every bit of it. I don't recommend this film for folks that are into horror, mind numbing non-stop action or tons of gore - you won't find that here.
