Almost As Good As Nicholson Can Get.

As good as it gets revolves around a lonely guy named Melvin Udall (Nicholson) into his late fifties or so. He dislikes a lot of things, and is beginning to lose his mind. He lives in an apartment by himself, with a very unfortunate condition "OCD" (obsessive compulsive disorder). I could relate to Nicholson's character from the get go, because I have that condition myself. Anyway, Melvin is asked... read more

I saw this back when it was a fairly new movie, I think somebody in the family rented it. Back then I did not care for it at all, particularly not the characters played by Helen Hunt (whose performance I found extremely overrated) or Greg Kinnear.

This ended up being another movie I had to watch in class in 2015. I will say, the second time around was a lot more enjoyable. In this cas... read more

An average movie

“To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this movie and maybe I should give it another chance at some point. Even though this movie seems to be rather forgotten nowadays, it was a big critical success when it was released and both Jack Nicholson and Helen Hunt ended up winning the Best Actor and Best Actress Academy awards. Well, with this in mind, I was quite eager to check this movie and I had some rather high expectations but, to be honest, I didn’t really see what was so amazing about this movie. I mean, sure, Jack Nicholson is a great actor and he was, as usual, quite entertaining here but I had a rather hard time to really care about the damned thing. Basically, for some various reasons, I have always been interested in psychological disorders and I’m always eager to c” read more

"I've never really been into romance flicks all that much. The few that I do enjoy usually tend to have a sort of a sharp or jagged edge to 'em. And this one definitely does thru Jack's portrayal of a writer with "redrum" on his mind. At least, he does with the little dog during the opening sequence. Nicholson eases thru the role of a crusty curmudgeon with psychologically-based anti-social issues (Is it just me or does it seem that the majority of Jack's most memorable roles always have somethi"
