I am very, very disappointed in this experience with this order. Only a DVD was sent.
I needed this by this coming Wednesday! I was so looking forward watching this and now don't have it. How sad is this with my first experience ordering from Walmart.

Pampan, May 22, Russell made his debut with Spanking the Monkey , a sparkling comedy about a middle-class lad on the threshold of leaving home to enter medical school, who develops troublesome incestuous desires for his attractive, invalid mother as well as a Portnoyesque obsession with masturbation when left to care for her by a domineering father.
In the years since, Russell has gradually moved into the mainstream without abandoning his oblique approach to the world, his interest in self-questioning heroes and his fascination with dysfunctional families. Perched on a razor's edge between comedy and psychological drama, Silver Linings Playbook opens with the release from a mental institution of the explosive Patrick Solitano Jr after eight months' incarceration.
He's played by the handsome Bradley Cooper, currently best known as one of the carousing tourists in the calculatedly vulgar Hangover movies. He's been diagnosed as bipolar after beating up a fellow high school teacher, whom he found, we graphically discover, having a shower with his Pat's wife. The condition of his release is that he takes his medication and lives with his father Robert De Niro doing another of his querulous pater familias roles , now running an illegal bookmaking business in his parlour, and his devoted mother fine Australian actor Jacki Weaver, most recently seen here as the Melbourne gangland matriarch in Animal Kingdom.
Meanwhile, he must keep clear of his estranged wife and make regular visits to a perceptive, pawkily humorous Indian psychiatrist. All of these people are obsessives of sorts, but plausibly so, as are the majority of the people Patrick meets in his native Philadelphia suburb.
A particular passion they all share is for the local football team, the Philadelphia Eagles, which somehow they manage to identify with America itself and with Benjamin Franklin, the city's greatest son. Because of the tradition of disruptive violence his over-enthusiastic presence encourages, Pat's father has been banned from the Eagles' stadium. Most significant among these people is the young widow Tiffany, a good-looking woman living in the garage of her parents' home, which she's turned into a dance studio.
Silver Linings Playbook
An old school friend of Patrick's, she hilariously reunites with him over dinner as they exchange notes about the medication they've been taking. Her project is to involve him in an annual dance, the city's local equivalent of Strictly Come Dancing and named after Franklin.
Tiffany is another version of the tough bartender and college drop-out in Russell's The Fighter who sets out to rescue the failing boxer from the family that is destroying him. Both are familiar characters in Hollywood comedies, but the fundamentally sensible Tiffany is given a rare depth and pathos by Jennifer Lawrence. She bonds in a complex way with Pat by giving him a pejorative, one-minute summary of Lord of the Flies before throwing it out into the street.
