I could watch this movie on repeat. What a cast! It's easy to fall in love with each of these characters. And the final dance scene is perfect.


One of my contemporary favorites. Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro and others make up a great cast that lives up to their expectations. One of my favorite movie scenes is delivered by Jennifer Lawrence in this film when, to the surprise of a sports loving family rattles off Rain Man-like statistics in rapid fire. The ending is a bit predictable but leaves you no less entertained by a group of flawed characters overcoming their transgressions.
