Silver Linings Playbook has the winning timing and bounce of an old fashioned screwball comedy, but instead of being projected by the effortless charm of Grant and Hepburn, we have the off kilter rhythms and manic intensity of the characters played by Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, surely the movie couple of the year. It's gloriously funny even as the the laughs often catch in your throat. The actors are all amazing, and David Russell frictionlessly and expertly shapes the film, so that In the end, you just badly want all of these vivid and damaged people to realize just how much they love each other.
