How not to love Jack Nicholson?
Such a real lovable and flawed character, facing real questionings about life.

A very good movie

1 year, 11 months ago at Mar 10 9:18
I really have a weak spot for Jack Nicholson, I think he is a great actor, but sometimes, he tends to play the same charismatic hysterical guys over and over but, this time, he finally portrayed an old man who was actually acting like an old man and not like an oversexed teenager. Obviously, with such a terrific turn, Nicholson was once again nominated for the Academy awards (already his 12th nomi... read more

A very good movie

“I really have a weak spot for Jack Nicholson, I think he is a great actor, but sometimes, he tends to play the same charismatic hysterical guys over and over but, this time, he finally portrayed an old man who was actually acting like an old man and not like an oversexed teenager. Obviously, with such a terrific turn, Nicholson was once again nominated for the Academy awards (already his 12th nomination) but we shouldn’t forget Alexander Payne who was slowly building up a solid reputation as a director. Personally, I was a little bit disappointed by ‘Election’, his previous directing effort. I mean, it was pretty good but it could have been terrific. This time, he really nailed it though. Indeed, the characters were more grounded and less hysterical and it was easier to relate with t” read more

"May 25 I thought this was a good movie. I loved Jack Nicholson's performance in this one and I thought the other actors did a good job as well."

Greatest Film Tearjerking Moments A - C (51 movies items)

"The final scene of widowed and retired 66 year-old actuary Warren Schmidt (Jack Nicholson) in Omaha, Nebraska writing his last (in voice-over) despairing letter to his recently-adopted 6 year-old Childreach foster child Ndugu Umbo in Tanzania: ("But what kind of difference have I made? What in the world is better because of me?...What difference has my life made to anyone? None that I can think of. None at all"), followed by his receipt of a letter, upon returning home from his only daughter Jea"

"Jack decides it's time to step away from the more spotlight movies & start flexing some acting muscles to remind everyone that he's not just the Jackster that Hollywood has decided to iconally cement him into. Jack plays a role of which we're not accustomed to seeing him in. A man who after a lifetime made up of a reliable yet indifferent job, a dutiful wife who makes him sandwiches for lunch & a family that has just simply moved on, now finds himself alone & purposeless. And thus begins a jour"
