Silver Linings Playbook (2012) (2 of 6) (part)
  • The title "Silver Linings Playbook" is a source of confusion for some, especially people not very familiar with idiomatic English. The "Silver Linings" part of the title comes from the common expression "every cloud has a silver lining," which means "look on the bright side" or "nothing is all bad." The first documented use of the phrase in this way is from John Milton's 1634 work "Comus I." A "Playbook" is a written or mental list of athletic strategies that a coach creates to guide a team through a game or a sport. So in combination, the title refers to an arsenal of strategies for Pat to use while trying to look on the brighter side of life. Similar expressions were used in foreign releases, such as: "The Bright Side of Things", "The Bright Side of Life", or "Games of Destiny" (Spain/Latin America), "Optimistic Guide" (Greece), "Happiness Therapy" (France), "Guide for Ultimate Happiness" (Portugal), "My Light of Hope" (Turkey), and "Sunny Side" (Hungary) to name a few.
  • It took 5 years and 25 rewrites before David O. Russell could direct it himself as Pollack told him it was tricky to have emotional, troubling, funny and romantic content mixed together.
  • Jennifer Lawrence was more impressed with one of her co-stars than with the others. "I met Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, and Jacki Weaver all at the same time," she remembers. "Robert De Niro is standing right next to Jacki Weaver, and I go straight to Jacki and am like, 'Oh my God, I love Animal Kingdom (2010)! I love you!'"
  • During an interview with the National Public Radio program "Weekend Edition Sunday," Jacki Weaver said that David O. Russell gave her and Robert De Niro a back-story for their characters that included the fact that even though they had been married for 30-plus years, they still make love twice a week.

  • America is not just a power, it is a promise. It is not enough for our country to be extraordinary in might; it must be exemplary in meaning.

  • Seven batters come up in an 1/2 inning, yet no one scores. How is this possible? There are no substitions.

    Let us not be too particular; it is better to have old secondhand diamonds than none at all.

    “Few things in the world are more powerful than a positive push. A smile. A world of optimism and hope. A 'you can do it' when things are tough.”
