"Silver Linings Playbook" makes comic hay from bipolar illness, early death, sexual adventurism, self-improvement binges, football fanaticism, degenerate gambling and father-son estrangement, as one would expect from latter-day Russell movies.

But Silver Linings Playbook never induces a roll of the eyes, even if it never really surprises.

In an age when the concept of comedies about possible kinships between characters is dominated by sugary devices and contrivance, here at last is a movie about real situations, real people and the natural experiences that evolve from them.

Jennifer Lawrence is the only aspect of the film that truly lives up to the trumped-up awards buzz and hype, but being a perfectly enjoyable light comedy with heaps of heart is no small feat in itself.

Director David O. Russell forms a unique and incredible romance dramedy...
February 18, 2013
There is some charm to the story, but the final act is very neat, predictable, contrived, and not up to originality of the first two.

Director David O. Russell is a little too chipper at times - breaking a restraining order is really no joke - but he brings a breeziness to this likeable tale of two misfits trying to make it work.
