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'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... read more

"The acting is the best thing about this film, the script is beautiful but the performances really bring it to life!! Helen Hunt is genuinely breathtaking and won an Oscar for her role, so did Jack Nicholson! :) Greg Kinnear was also a beautiful performance. You should definitely watch it!! Definitely. "

"Watched on: 8/27 Pretty good movie. Jack Nicholson's performance is awesome as usual. Just great performances all around, which is good because the whole movie weighs on the shoulders on the actors. "

As Good as It Gets (1997)

“At no point in the movie just believe both characters as the story develops. Too coarse and sentimental performances greatly exaggerated and histrionic. The best, the performance of the little dog. And the worst: one thing is to try to make dreams (Hollywood) and other produce a lie after another. A shame.” read more
