4.0 out of 5 stars Touching and funny - great curl up on the sofa flick, 6 Aug. 2013
This review is from: Silver Linings Playbook [DVD] (DVD)
It might be Jennifer Lawrence who nabbed the Oscar, but this film is a real step up for Cooper. The premise is simple, two mentally unstable people find away to cope by being together, and unfortunately the whole thing is a little predictable.
That said, the film is full of great performances that really sizzle. I particularly liked De Niro's turn as a OCD bookmaker, and the sparks between Lawrence and Cooper are excellent.
Not quite light-hearted enough to be an out-right rom-com, but plenty of humour keeps the topic of mental illness from becoming too somber and depressing.
Touches of Juno and Little Miss Sunshine.

Quite agree with all of this - particularly the comment on Copper, who was excellent, I thought.
