Silver Linings Playbook(2012)

Great cast with spectacular performances that more than make up for the occasionally weak script. Cooper and Lawrence - my two favorite modern actors - are phenomenal in this kinda-sorta romantic comedy which is really light on the romance. Robert DeNiro also does good as Pat's father who is struggling to reconnect with his son in the only way he knows - through betting on Philadelphia sports games. The dancing aspect of the plot feels a little tacked on at times and the way Chris Tucker keeps popping upme question the reliability of the movies police system, but overall I really liked this and will be looking forward to the time that Oscar nominations are announced to see if it managed to snag any.
