Jennifer Lawrence capped off a star-cementing year with a Best Actress Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook and now, with the film’s DVD release just a few days away, The Weinstein Company has released an alternate ending to the box-office smash indie flick.

The scene, via MTV News, is largely an expansion of the theatrical version’s ending. After scoring a 5 at the dance competition and realizing they were meant for one another, Pat (Bradley Cooper) and Tiffany (Lawrence) are seen at home on game day with his parents (Robert De Niro and Jackie Weaver) and some family friends.

The epilogue doesn’t really add anything to the story, but it’s a great excuse to spend a bit more time with the lovable and smart-mouthed gang. And it’s pretty excellent to watch Lawrence and De Niro riff together over the unacceptability of wearing a rival team’s jersey during one of the fam’s beloved Philadelphia Eagles’ games.

We suppose the clip is a pretty spoiler-y if you haven’t seen the film, which landed eight Oscar noms including Best Picture, Best Director, and individual acting nods for each of its four principal actors. Silver Linings hits stores on April 30. Check out the film’s alternate ending below.
