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'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

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- March 2010 (19 movies items)

" VHS- 2hrs. 19min. First Viewing A solid dramedy. James L. Brooks last really good film works largely because of how damn good the cast is. The writing is quite good too, but it at times came off as too cloying."

Total Film's 50 Movies That Are Longer Than Should (50 movies items)

"Length: 139 mins Why That's Too Long: It’s an oddball romantic ‘dramedy’. Not a war-torn love story. How We'd Fix It: Tighten up the plotting and keep things snappy. Everyone gives great performances but the film ambles along at too a leisurely a pace to ever be smart and snappy."

Moviewatcher122's 2014 Film Diary: June (27 movies items)

"June 1 'Why can't I have a normal boyfriend? Just a regular boyfriend, one that doesn't go nuts on me!" "Everybody wants that, dear. It doesn't exist." What an overrated, disappointing movie. Jack Nicholson's performance was great and he deserved the Oscar for this movie. I did not like the dialogue for this movie, the other actors weren't that impressive and the subject it tackles has been done in better movies than this one. It did have a few laughs every now and then, but besides that and"
