After being in a mental institution Pat Solitano (Bradley Cooper) who is a former teacher moves back with his parents and tries to reconcile with his wife. But one Pat meets this girl who has problems of her own. Oh boy!!!
Pat is up beat and wants to prove everyone he is better man not a bitter man or an angry one If you have not guess it yet he is bipolar.

Pat assures his parents, Pat Sr. and Dolores (Robert De Niro and Jacki Weaver), that all will be well. Yeah! well okay. Dolores is used to it her husband is compulsive and he is a fanatic of the Philadelphia Eagles and he is convinced that they will win if he fulfill all his superstitions.
Pat meets this young woman Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a young widow in the neighborhood. To pat surprise she can understand him because she is crazy herself. She is pissed because Pat want to reconciled with his wife but she sees that Pat could be the therapy that she needs as well as for him too. Here is a terrific actress only 22 who is going to make a name for herself. In this film you will not recognized her too much she totally transformed herself here. Danny (Chris Tucker) who plays Pat’s friend to my surprise does a great job at playing Danny. Og course my favorite actor DeNiro as always incarnates his character very well as a veteran actor it is after all second nature by now again a beautiful performance here. A crew comedy that speaks for itself. If you have not seen it yet Please do you will not be disappointed. It is a comedy on wheels and gears that is going full speed ahead.
