Synopsis Dramatic, emotional, even heartbreaking, as well as wickedly funny, it has the gift of going its own way, a complete success from a singular talent.3.5 stars out of 4 -- [W]ith these actors, this velocity and the oblique economy of the dialogue, we realize we don't often see it done this well. SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK is so good, it could almost be a terrific old classic.[F]ull and thrillingly free....[Russell] has thrown drama, farce and comedy together with piercingly astute perceptions of mental illness, and topped the whole thing off with lyrical romance.3 stars out of 5 -- Cooper and Lawrence do generate terrific chemistry.SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK is an unfussy, rambling crowd-pleaser that recalls elements of the filmmaker's past work....[De Niro] is downright wonderful...Russell's smart, snappy script is delivered by a top-notch cast, including two thoroughly likeable and well-matched leads in the from of HANGOVER star Bradley Cooper...and Jennifer Lawrence...Russell brings these high-strung characters together in a harmony of comic dysfunction that few other filmmakers could achieve without the film falling into chaos. -- Grade: B+De Niro delivers his warmest, most astute performance in years, and both Cooper and Lawrence successfully shed their movie-star glamour to play a couple of self-sabotaging misfits in search of a decent coping strategy.The movie is lit with a love that catches the viewer by surprise. We're ready for the comedy of craziness, but the depth of compassion is the movie's silver lining. -- Grade: A3.5 stars out of 4 -- SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK is eager to sting instead of soothe. It's one of the year's best movies because Russell makes you laugh till it hurts.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.
