This is a movie worth any movie lover's time and money.

Although Silver Linings Playbook is high-concept fare, it doesn't feel formulaic. The story unfolds with such loopy, oddball energy that you almost forget it's a romantic comedy.

Fans of Russell's earlier films might lament his new career path as him selling out, but doing so doesn't give him enough credit. His work is still subversive, but now it's getting him better results.

A perfect storm of great writing and expert performances working in tandem, a rare romantic comedy with both a heart and a brain that rings painfully and beautifully true.

Although the story sometimes drags and the predictable rom-com ending feels too pat, "Silver Linings Playbook" scores some intriguing insights into what mental illnesses we consider socially acceptable.

Thanks to some truly terrific acting and amusing subplots with Pat's parents, the story works.

Playing outspoken, emotionally damaged young widow Tiffany, Lawrence is a firecracker, a powder keg, a force of nature.

Silver Linings Playbook is difficult to like, and too long, with a climactic dance scene that is filmically botched, which is fine with the movie because according to the plot it did not have to be good to succeed.

Russell's smart, snappy script is delivered by a top-notch cast, including two thoroughly likeable and well-matched leads.
