Reviews:
"Dramatic, emotional, even heartbreaking, as well as wickedly funny, it has the gift of going its own way, a complete success from a singular talent." - 11/15/2012 Los Angeles Times


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[W]ith these actors, this velocity and the oblique economy of the dialogue, we realize we don't often see it done this well. SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK is so good, it could almost be a terrific old classic." - 11/15/2012 Chicago Sun-Times


"[F]ull and thrillingly free....[Russell] has thrown drama, farce and comedy together with piercingly astute perceptions of mental illness, and topped the whole thing off with lyrical romance." - 11/15/2012 Wall Street Journal


3 stars out of 5 -- "Cooper and Lawrence do generate terrific chemistry." - 12/01/2012 Total Film


"SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK is an unfussy, rambling crowd-pleaser that recalls elements of the filmmaker's past work....[De Niro] is downright wonderful..." - 11/15/2012 Movieline


"Russell's smart, snappy script is delivered by a top-notch cast, including two thoroughly likeable and well-matched leads in the from of HANGOVER star Bradley Cooper...and Jennifer Lawrence..." - 12/01/2012 Sight and Sound


"Russell brings these high-strung characters together in a harmony of comic dysfunction that few other filmmakers could achieve without the film falling into chaos." -- Grade: B+ - 11/15/2012 A.V. Club


"De Niro delivers his warmest, most astute performance in years, and both Cooper and Lawrence successfully shed their movie-star glamour to play a couple of self-sabotaging misfits in search of a decent coping strategy." - 11/16/2012 Washington Post


"The movie is lit with a love that catches the viewer by surprise. We're ready for the comedy of craziness, but the depth of compassion is the movie's silver lining." -- Grade: A - 11/23/2012 Entertainment Weekly


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "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." - 12/06/2012 Rolling Stone
