El lado bueno de las cosas Rating: 76 out of 100 based on 39 reviews.
Pat Solitano (Bradley Cooper), que tiene un trastorno bipolar, es liberado de un centro de salud mental a la atención de sus padres, después de ocho meses de tratamiento. Se entera de que su esposa, Nikki (Brea Bee), se ha mudado y su padre, Pat Sr (Robert De Niro)no tiene trabajo y utiliza el recurso de los juegos de azar para ganar dinero y abrir un restaurante. Pat está decidido a conseguir su vida de vuelta y reconciliarse con Nikki, quien presentó una orden de restricción contra él después del episodio violento que lo mandó lejos. Mientras habla con su terapeuta por mandato judicial, Pat explica más de por qué tuvo que ser hospitalizado. Llegó a casa del trabajo temprano un día, se encontró con Nikki teniendo relaciones sexuales con otro maestro en su ducha. Enfurecido, estuvo a punto de pegar al hombre hasta la muerte. A pesar de esto, Pat no cree que necesite medicamentos para controlar su condición. En una cena con su amigo Ronnie (John Ortiz), conoce a su cuñada, Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), una preciosa viuda reciente que también acaba de perder su empleo. Pat y Tiffany desarrollan una extraña amistad a través de sus neurosis comunes, y él ve la oportunidad de comunicarse con Nikki través de ella. Él convence a Tiffany para darle a Nikki una carta que ha escrito, la cual se compromete a hacerlo sólo si es su pareja en un campeonato de baile en el que quiere participar. Él está de acuerdo, y los dos comienzan un régimen de práctica rigurosa en las semanas siguientes. Pat cree que el campeonato será una buena manera de demostrar a Nikki que ha cambiado y que se ha convertido en un hombre mejor. Tiffany le da a Pat una respuesta por escrito de Nikki. Las cosas van bien para Pat hasta que su padre le pide que asista a un juego de los Eagles para apostar una gran cantidad de dinero, como un "amuleto de buena suerte". Pat se salta la prática con Tiffany para asistir al partido, pero es arrastrado a una pelea y se lo lleva la policía. Los Eagles pierden el juego y el Pat Sr está furioso. Tiffany llega, reprende a Pat y discute en detalle la forma en que "lee" las señales: Pat Sr tuvo más suerte cuando Pat estaba practicando con ella. Pat Sr. hace un parlay con su amigo de juego que si los Eagles ganan su partido ante Dallas, y si la puntuación de Pat y Tiffany es al menos un 5 sobre 10 en el campeonato de baile, recuperará el dinero que perdió en la primera apuesta . Pat es reacio a participar en el concurso de baile en esas condiciones, y vuelve a leer la letra de Nikki como consuelo, pero se da cuenta de que fue escrita por Tiffany ya que ella usó una frase que está escrita en la carta. Pat, Tiffany, y todos los demás llegan al campeonato la noche del partido de fútbol. Tiffany se horroriza al descubrir que Nikki se encuentra en la audiencia. Con el malestar que tiene de que Pat pueda recuperar a Nikki y de que va a perderlo, se va al bar y se bebe dos vodkas. Frenética, mancha a Pat pero él se las arregla para convencerla de salir a la pista de baile, y realizan su baile. Mientras bailan, los Eagles ganan el partido, y al final de su baile consiguen exactamente 5 puntos. En medio de los aplausos de su familia y sus miradas confusas de la multitud, Pat se acerca a Nikki y habla con ella en voz baja al oído. Tiffany se atormenta y se va. Pat deja a Nikki atrás después de una breve conversación, con la intención de encontrar a Tiffany. Corre tras ella y le dice que sabe que ella escribió la carta de Nikki. Él confiesa que la ha amado desde el momento en que la conoció, pero ha tardado mucho tiempo en darse cuenta de ello, y se besan. Empiezan a salir y Pat Sr abre un restaurante con el dinero que ha ganado.

Let’s say you come home early and are surprised to find your wife in the shower. With another man. What would you do? If you’re Pat Solitano, Jr. (Cooper) you beat the hell out of him. Of course you now find yourself out of a job, out of a wife...
