After a stint in a mental institution, former teacher Pat Solitano moves back in with his parents and tries to reconcile with his ex-wife. Things get more challenging when Pat meets Tiffany, a mysterious girl with problems of her own.
Tiffany's appearance was originally more "goth", Jennifer Lawrence dyed her hair black and wore heavy dark make-up for costume tests, but Harvey Weinstein disapproved, so the goth elements were toned down. Lawrence was also advised by David O. Russell to gain weight for the role.
Dr. Cliff Patel:
Will somebody please explain me the parlay, please?
Ronnie: You gotta win two bets or you lose the whole thing. For Pat Sr. to win, the Birds gotta beat the Cowboys, plus, Pat and Tiffany gotta get at least a 5 at the dance.
Dr. Cliff Patel: That's very, very manic, indeed.
At the end on the road before they kiss, Tiffany says "You let me lie to you for a week?" when in reality he would have known at least a month, since the night of the Giants game.
There are no opening credits.
