I haven't read this book and really didn't know what to expect from the movie. I enjoyed it with all the quirky characters and their interactions. You definitely cheer for the main characters at the end!

Predictable plot lines - definitely not Oscar material.

"Silver Lings Playbook" may have been the best comedy of 2013! Special credit to Robert De Niro who added just the right touch as an older parent. Have we ever seen a parent get to involved in their grown children's lives? My whole family laughed through this beautiful picture. It tugs at the heartstrings and keeps you smiling long after its over!

One of my favourite movies of all time. It's hysterical and moving. I totally got the humour whereas my husband thought it was weird. I'm normally not a big Bradley Cooper fan but both he and Jennifer Lawrence were awesome.

Good movie. I would highly recommend it.

A change of pace, very well done. It can be a bit hard to take, being about someone who is always in hyperdrive, but it is different and it works.

I barely could watch 15 minutes of it, before being extremely disappointed that it's nothing like the book. My bf found it boring too.

This movie is hilarious and moving with an intelligent, witty script. The cast is uniformly great, with Bradley Cooper being the surprise for me. Robert DeNiro is perfect. I know people with bipolar disorder and OCD and the characters' actions resonated. Not for everyone --- but for me 5 stars!

A great cast and story but it's marred by the excessive improvisational script. There are moments where everyone's speaking on top of everyone else, sometimes shouting, I found it rather tiresome and wearing. As much as I love Jennifer Lawrence, I'm surprised she won an Oscar for this movie but after reviewing the other nominees that year I understand her competition was formidable.

Tiffany: "...Why did you order raisin bran?" Pat: "Why did you order tea?" Tiffany: "Because you ordered raisin bran." Pat: "I ordered raisin bran because I didn't want there to be any mistaking it for a date." Tiffany: "It can still be a date if you order raisin bran." Pat: "It's not a date."

Officer Keogh: "Hey, you're Tommy's widow, right?" Tiffany: "Yes, I'm Tommy's crazy whore widow. Minus the whore thing, for the most part." Officer Keogh: "You're a funny girl... You want to get a drink sometime?"
