Violence: After a man finds his wife in the shower with another man he punches her lover numerous times. A father and son get into a power struggle that escalates into a physical fight, with hitting and wrestling. When a man makes derogatory racial remarks to another man a fistfight begins between multiple characters. Many scenes include loud verbal arguing. A man looks for ways to violate a restraining order preventing him from communicating with his estranged wife.

I am extremely disappointed in Donna’s write up of Silver Linings Playbook! I am shocked that an R rated movie would be previewed by you let alone given a C rating!  I have not seen it and will not dispite the story being interesting to me. How can a movie with repeated nudity and extremely bad language (based on Kids In Mind ratings) be acceptable!! People, including children, will now see this movie because it was “only rated C by Parent Previews!”. Your website just lost a whole lot of credibility in my opinion.
