“A rom-com that succeeds in revitalizing that discredited genre where so many others have failed, injecting it with the grit and emotion of realist drama rather than with amped-up whimsy or social satire.”~Salon
Aroview: An institutionalized man attempts to readjust to life and love in this full-bodied comedy-drama that pairs two of the hottest stars of the moment with a script that puts them through hard-earned romantic paces.
Harking back to the genre that the director first flirted with in FLIRTING WITH DISASTER, this is again more sophisticated than the average rom-com, tossing its messy elements into an elegant swirl that at once transcends the formula while conforming to big-hearted Hollywood conventions. A breakout hit at the box-office, this also delivered Jennifer Lawrence an Oscar for Best Actress.

5 stars (Exceptional) Bradley Cooper deserved an Oscar nomination for this movie. ~WendyB
4 stars (Very Good) A good and a touching tale, and well-acted - but not quite brilliant, and not quite deserving of its Oscar nods. Anticipation and hype did not work this one in its favour for me. ~Tom H
2 stars (Good Try) A talkie and a loud one at that. ~tubbs
5 stars (Exceptional) ~mvvm
3 stars (Good Enough) Reaches the parts other rom-coms don't, but once the story kicks into gear the mental health aspect is revealed to be window-dressing. Very good cast, and the Chris Tucker rehabilitation begins here... ~HiFi
