Life doesn't always go according to plan...Pat Solatano (Bradley Cooper) has lost everything - his house, his job, and his wife. He now finds himself living back with his mother (Jacki Weaver) and father (Robert DeNiro) after spending eight months in a state institution on a plea bargain. Pat is determined to rebuild his life, remain positive and reunite with his wife, despite the challenging circumstances of their separation. All Pat's parents want is for him to get back on his feet - and to share their family's obsession with the Philadelphia Eagles football team. When Pat meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a mysterious girl with problems of her own, things get complicated. Tiffany offers to help Pat reconnect with his wife, but only if he'll do something very important for her in return.

A very memorable movie, as it is excellent. Witty (great dialogue), moving and superbly acted. Bradley cooper is great as a young man with mental health problems. Jennifer Lawrence is phenomenal as Tiffany, a young girl with mental issues of her own. Tiffany is so honest with great intellect under the sometimes eratic behavior. A well handled film that makes a serious subject funny, and makes you question are the other, so called sane characters crazier?
Rolling Stone said Jennifer Lawrence was one of the best young actors in Hollywood. After seeing this I agree totally. All the more remarkable to win the best actress Oscar for Tiffany at just 22.
