My wife tells me she wants to see "Silver Linings Playbook" and I was leery because I had never even heard of the movie. However, I'm so glad we did. This was a very good movie, one of the best we've seen in a while. The storyline is very well done, and the characters are spectacular. A big problem with alot of modern-day movies is that the characters personalities tend the morph as the movie goes along to fit the changing storyline. This is not the case with this movie, the storyline is told (and told well) while holding true to the personalities of the characters, and that thoroughly impressed me. This is not a movie for someone who is easily offended by strong language, don't even bother. The characters would not be anywhere near the level that they bring if they were told to tone it down. I would recommend this movie to anyone.
