Metacritic Score

  • 100

    The Playlist Kevin Jagernauth

    An enormously entertaining, crowd-pleasing winner from the director whose comedic edge has never been sharper.

  • 90

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Cheerfully yet poignantly exposing the struggles, anxieties, disorders and obsessions of ordinary people, this is a film as odd as it is charming.

  • 75

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Lawrence and Cooper have electric chemistry, and the director pulls off one of the most satisfying romantic Hollywood endings seen in years.

  • I actually hated it at first

    8.0
    The start was so boring that I almost walked away but I have to say I really did like it.



    I can see why Jlaw won the Oscars
  • Manic & dark, but heartwarming. Must watch for Philadelphia sports fans

    9.0
    Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence fully realize some remarkably troubled characters, but the humor delivers to the point that you really do root for them to figure out their lives. The supporting cast is also solid, especially DeNiro as a surprisingly present OCD Eagles fan who just wants to spend some time with his son. The ending takes a sappy turn, but it's funny and in character enough to work, which is refreshing for an indie movie about screwed up people.

    • The film takes place in 2008 and references real results from that year's Philadelphia Eagles season, including the decisive 44-6 thumping of the Dallas Cowboys in the last game of the season (which sent the Eagles to the playoffs). Jennifer Lawrence's character also reference the Phillies 2008 World Series title that same fall.
