What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Christy Lemure Humour of dysfunction works well.
Mark Keizer It's not much, but adult audiences starved for mature entertainment should be counted on to investigate this flawed, if admittedly heartfelt, work.

Roger Ebert Silver Linings Playbook is so good, it could almost be a terrific old classic.
C. Fuchs I didn't know much about the film, its genre or tonal aspects before our press screening, but I really enjoyed it from start to finish. I think many adult viewers will have the same reaction, even if they're not Eagles fans and regardless of whether they have any superstitious rituals they employ in hopes of the movie they're watching will end up being good.
Tomatometer Silver Linings Playbook walks a tricky thematic tightrope, but David O. Russell's sensitive direction and some sharp work from a talented cast gives it true balance.
