Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: It's a rom-com that succeeds in revitalizing that discredited genre where so many others have failed, injecting it with the grit and emotion of realist drama rather than with amped-up whimsy or social satire or montages of people walking on the beach.
- Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com, Friday, January 4, 2013
Fresh: For a movie that seems at times to have no idea what it's trying to do, "Silver Linings Playbook" is compulsively watchable.
- Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic, Tuesday, November 20, 2012
Fresh: Writer-director Russell is just the guy to bring out (and then calm) the manic dysfunction in these folks.

Phenomenally acted twist on the seemingly dead rom-com genre. SLP manages to inject a healthy dose of realism and emotion into a genre that typically has very flat characters. It also generates discussion regarding the topic of mental health issues and how this is currently handled in our society, where discussion is long overdue.

First time first I must say that I hate you David O'Russell for making a movie that not only full with great performances from its cast with a great story, but also make the drama light enough to be called as romantic-comedy and open up the possibilities of being liked by a lot more people.. The plot is simple, it is a family movie that tells stories about hope, love, and chances but the script just made this movie more and more entertaining to be watched.. Jennifer Lawrence's performance describe it all with her Oscar that she received from this movie, she's really flawless especially with the help of her other movies 'The Hunger Games' that also released in 2012.. Bradley Cooper, I just can't realized he can turned his performance to be an A-class Hollywood actor when the first time I know him I thought he'll trapped in a lot of comedy movie (Silver Linings is a comedy movie too, but different from his other previous movies).. Robert De Niro I guess there's no need to doubt his acting, while Jackie Weaver completed the performance with her 2nd nominated Oscar performance in the last 3 years.. Overall, it's a great family movie with a great performances from the cast and great story too..

"Silver Linings Playbook" is an above average movie, which leaves viewers happy, and delivers a clear message. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence give great performances, and the plot is original for most of the movie, but delivers a predictable and somewhat cliche ending. Grade: B
