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!

stupid movie! I cannot stand Bradley Cooper. Lousy actor. Not Oscar material. I only was interested because of Robert Deniro . Could not get past even 5 minutes of this movie. Do yourself a favor and pass this one.

One of the funniest movies in years. Especially, Robert De Niro playing the Dad in the film. He and his superstitions are hilarious. Don't miss this one!

This movie just didn't do it for me. I thought the father, Robert DeNiro was crazier than his adult kid, Bradley Cooper. The acting was great, but I just didn't click with the story line. All I got out of it was Bradley Cooper was stalking & obsessed this ex-wife. The whole bi-polar thing with Bradley Cooper & Jennifer Lawrence just didn't work for me. I'm glad I didn't waste any money to see this one.

While the plot may be a bit predictable, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence both deliver high-caliber performances. Robert DeNiro does a solid job as well.

It's rare for a movie to tackle mental health related issues in a realistic way and this movie manages to do a great job of showing the highs and lows that some face daily.

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.

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?"
