  • 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. show more

  • Everything comes together brilliantly in Silver Linings Playbook - for the film's crazed but uncrazy lovers; for the filmmaker, David O. Russell, and best of all for lucky us. show more

  • It is, without doubt, a transcendent endeavor, from its exhilaratingly smart screenplay - director David O. Russell's adaptation of the novel by former South Jersey teacher Matthew Quick - to the unexpected and moving turns of its two leads. show more

    Strictly Hollywood dreck. Nice unoriginal concept. Poor execution. Inconsistent tone. No character development. Usual cliche ending. None of the pieces fit. In other words, dreck.

    In a country where so many are medicated I\'m surprised the box office wasn\'t through the roof. Maybe it was too true?
