A bipolar man has trouble coping with his ended marriage.

It hits all the standard Romantic Comedy/Dramedy mileposts without ever feeling cliche or at all unnatural.

Half a star up, because i had fun/pleasure in watching

from the beginning the end is predictable, (film is halfway when i write this), No this is no spoiler, i don't know the end for sure. The main man character Pat, will recover from his disease, at least, enough to live on his own. He and Tiffany will become lovers. And in between there are troubles, downturns, clashes.
But that doesn't matter!
Neither that the situation and the course, progress, of Pat's adaptation is not realistic.

The funny way they show that here It will turn out to be that te people who are labelled ill, mad, will be the heroes in life, compensates that.
The warmhearted Pat, meanwhile helps to cure his father, his friend and brother, bumbly tries to recover,
Tiffany, girly widow, likes dancing, does what she wants, no matter what other people say and speaks directly. ( not my invention)That leads to funny situations. example
The main characters and dr. are aimable and have some developement.
I do suspect her of writing the typed letters.
For making the story somewhat broader, the line of the betting father is there. By that the story can get an extra clash and a more tense end. This shows also what his father, and their relation is like.
I only wonder what will win: (film is approaching the end now ). Married people remain married , the American moral, isn't it? Or that , what all spectators want from the beginning: Pat and Tiffany happy together. It's short after dancing with the stars proof now, and i know the end.
For the film it's a good end. For real life not.
Feelgood, doubt between three or three and a half stars. i amused me, and.., or no and...

so, my third film review, the first in english, finished.
Oh happy me, i did not recognise Robert. :) Not his best role.

idea: Read the review by AdultAudienceMember: 'Stunningly accurate look at the bipolar life'. on the IMDB site ( )
