what the others say


"Jennifer Lawrence is the standout in a tonally uneven, eccentric romantic dramedy that fuses The Fisher King with Romy And Michele?s High School Reunion."

Time Out

"The acting is sparky and intelligent,?with Cooper proving there's more to him than flashy good looks. As for Lawrence, she acts every role like there's a soulful storm raging inside of her."


"Though The Silver Linings Playbook rarely reveals any tactics we've not seen before, we?re willing it towards a win all the same."
