After eight months' treatment in a mental health facility for bipolar disorder, Patrizio "Pat" Solitano Jr. is released into the care of his father Patrizio Sr. and mother Dolores at his childhood home in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania. His main focus is to reconcile with his ex-wife, Nikki. She has moved away and obtained a restraining order against him after Pat found her in the shower with another man and badly beat him. While in the clinic, Pat befriends Danny McDaniels, an easygoing man who is embroiled in a legal dispute with the clinic over whether or not he is eligible to leave. Pat's therapist, Cliff Patel, tries to convince him to keep taking his medication, as a repeat of his violent outbursts might send him back to the clinic. Pat tells him that he has a new outlook on life: he attempts to see the good, or silver linings, in all that he experiences. Pat employs the phrase "Excelsior," or "ever upward," as his new optimistic mantra.[10] Meanwhile, Pat experiences a series of anxiety attacks, including a violent reaction to Ernest Hemingway's A Farewell to Arms, which he throws into the yard, destroying his bedroom window in the process. Pat goes to dinner at his best friend Ronnie's house and meets Ronnie's sister-in-law, Tiffany Maxwell, a widow with an unnamed disorder. They connect, talking about different drugs they have taken to manage their mental illnesses. Sparks fly between them and she tries to offer him casual sex, but Pat is focused on getting Nikki back. Trying to get closer to Pat, Tiffany offers to deliver a letter to Nikki—if, in return he partners with her in an upcoming dance competition. He agrees and they begin a rigorous practice regimen over the following weeks. When Danny comes to help, Pat starts to get jealous and shows Tiffany a bit of affection; however, he tries to push his feelings away. Pat believes the competition will be a good way to show Nikki he has changed. The elder Patrizio, hoping to open his own restaurant, has resorted to illegal bookmaking. Having bet most of his money on a Philadelphia Eagles game, he asks Pat to attend for good luck. Pat asks Tiffany for time off from practice to attend the game. She gives him a typed reply from Nikki, which cautiously hints they may be able to reconcile. Before entering the stadium, Pat and his brother Jake get in a fight with some racist fans, and are hauled away by the police. The Eagles lose the game and Patrizio is furious. When Patrizio expresses that the Eagles lost because of Tiffany getting involved in his son's life, Tiffany refutes his allegations by pointing out that the Philadelphia teams had done better whenever she and Pat were together. Convinced, Patrizio makes a parlay with Randy: if the Eagles win their next game and Tiffany and Pat score 5 out of 10 in their dance competition, he will win back double the money he lost on the first bet. Pat is reluctant, and Tiffany, Dolores, and Patrizio conspire to persuade Pat to dance in the competition, telling him Nikki will be there; it is revealed that it was his mother's initiative to support Tiffany's attempts to befriend him. Pat notices that the letter from Nikki also refers to "reading the signs," a phrase frequently used by Tiffany during her just-concluded argument with his father. He realizes that Tiffany in fact wrote the letter. Tiffany, Pat, and their friends and family arrive at the competition on the night of the football game. Tiffany despairs when she sees Nikki actually is in the audience, invited by Ronnie and his wife Veronica. They want Nikki to lift her restraining order on Pat and give him the chance to reconcile. Tiffany starts to drink heavily at the bar. Pat finds her moments before their dance and drags her onto the dance floor. They begin their routine as the Eagles defeat the Dallas Cowboys. At the conclusion of their set, Tiffany and Pat receive an average score of exactly 5.0 points, amid cheers from friends and family, and confused looks from the crowd. Pat approaches Nikki and whispers into her ear. Tiffany sees this and runs off. Pat leaves Nikki and chases Tiffany. He hands her a letter, in which he admits that he knows she forged Nikki's letter and confesses that he loved her from the moment he met her, though it took him ages to realize it. They share a kiss. Patrizio opens a restaurant with the money he has won, Danny grows even closer to the Solitanos, and Pat and Tiffany begin a relationship, no longer wearing their wedding rings.
