Justice has seldom been so sweet. Or so much fun.Written by
During her acceptance speech after winning the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy for "The Silver Linings Playbook" in 2013, Jennifer Lawrence remarked, "Oh what does it say? It says 'I beat Meryl!'" in reference to a line from this film. Unfortunately, many of the viewers (and fellow celebrities) did not get the reference and criticized Lawrence for her seemingly insensitive comment. See more »

I found this movie frustrating. I read Olivia Goldsmith's novel and found it deep, emotional, and justified in its revenge. The novel involves much deeper issues, like a father taking money from his retarded daughter, a man who beat his wife and forced her to allow their daughter to die following an accident, a man who refuses to support his children, et cetera.
This movie focuses on petty revenge because they are not happy with being discarded for twenty year olds. It has NONE of the book's depth, characters, or deep emotional satisfaction in revenge. It has nothing more than cheap satisfaction and cheap revenge. I watched it once and would never look at it again.
