Watch: 4-Minute Alternate Ending For 'Silver Linings Playbook' Gets The Entire Gang Back Together

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist April 25, 2013 at 4:23PM

While we anxiously await the oddball awesomeness David O. Russell is cooking up with "American Hustle," let's take a victory lap with "Silver Linings Playbook." The screwball rom-com nabbed 8 Oscar nominations resulting in a Best Actress win for Jennifer Lawrence, who shined among a uniformly excellent ensemble in the tale of one man's journey to find a happy medium between his mental illness and the troubles in his life. It's charming, winning stuff, and one extra moment that didn't make it to theaters is now available for you to enjoy at home.

While we anxiously await the oddball awesomeness David O. Russell is cooking up with "American Hustle," let's take a victory lap with "Silver Linings Playbook." The screwball rom-com nabbed 8 Oscar nominations resulting in a Best Actress win for Jennifer Lawrence, who shined among a uniformly excellent ensemble in the tale of one man's journey to find a happy medium between his mental illness and the troubles in his life. It's charming, winning stuff, and one extra moment that didn't make it to theaters is now available for you to enjoy at home.

The alternate ending to the movie -- which is more like a coda -- has landed online, and it gives us a final few minutes with pretty much every character in the movie stopping by. And that includes David O. Russell's own son, reprising his brief appearance from earlier in the picture (see the kid above holding up the digital camera next to JLaw). We can only imagine this sequence was cut for time -- the movie is already slightly over 2 hours -- and the general tone is slightly out of sync with the energetic pitch of the rest of picture, including the triumphant finale.

But it's substantial, running eight minutes long, and definitely worth a watch. "Silver Linings Playbook" arrives on home video on April 30th.
