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

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.

"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"
