    Life doesn’t always go according to plan…Pat Solitano (Bradley Cooper) has lost everything -- his house, his job, and his wife. He now finds himself living back with his mother (Jacki Weaver) and father (Robert DeNiro) after spending eight months in a state institution on a plea bargain. Pat is determined to rebuild his life, remain positive and reunite with his wife, despite the challenging circumstances of their separation.

    All Pat’s parents want is for him to get back on his feet - and to share their family’s obsession with the Philadelphia Eagles football team. When Pat meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a mysterious girl with problems of her own, things get complicated. Tiffany offers to help Pat reconnect with his wife, but only if he'll do something very important for her in return. As their deal plays out, an unexpected bond begins to form between them, and silver linings appear in both of their lives.

    Movie fans! In real life, there's a 15 year age difference between Bradley Cooper and the lovely Jennifer Lawrence. Does that bother you in terms of watching a movie? Should it even be an issue?

    No to both questions. They are actors and she is an adult, as well as a great actres. I haven't seen this movie yet, but if you hadn't told me of the age difference between the actors I wouldn't have known.

    It doesn't bother me. Love is love, the whole point of this movie is following your heart in the midst of chaos. There will always be someone saying who you should love, what you should be, etc, but when you go through things your perspective changes. Happiness is key.

    Saw the movie. Had no idea who she was. She looks and acts much older than she actually is. He looks younger than he is. They met in the middle. Would have said they were only a few years apart .... guess that was good acting.

    I have zero problem with it. They had a lot of chemistry and went well together.

    When I first heard of this movie I thought problems would arise because of their age differences. However, after watching the previews and movie clips, I now believe it will be a great film. Jennifer Lawerence is a great actress and even though she is still young she is able to pull off more mature rolls, I am excited to see it.

    This absolutely does not bother me - age is just a number, especially in movies. I've seen tons of movies where thirty something girls play someone in their mid twenties - it's all how you percieve it. If the actor is good, their real age won't show. :)
