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

Romances That Should Have Actually Happened (6 movies items)

"Carol and Simon (Helen Hunt and Greg Kinnear) The romance between Carol and Melvin wasn't bad. It just wasn't great. And that scene when Simon is drawing Carol made me really want them to be together, because they were really enjoying each other's company."

"Melvin: So never never interrupt me, ok? Not if there’s a fire. Not even if you hear the sound of a thud from my home and one week later, there’s a smell coming from there that can only be a decaying human body and you have to hold a hanky to your face because the stench is so thick that you think you’re going to faint. Even then, don’t come knocking. Or if it’s election night and you’re excited and you want to celebrate because some fudge packer that you date has been elected the fi"

Best Jack Nicholson Movies (6 movies items)

"The first movie I saw Jack in. I've heard people say that he's ugly, but I don't think so. He's just old and funny looking, with those eyebrows of his. But Nicholas Hoult sort of has unique eyebrows too. They've been described as vulcan. And no one says he's ugly. Obviously he's the opposite. So Jack Nicholson shouldn't be considered ugly, either. Sure, he's a great actor. But do we really have to diss his looks? I admit that I secretly wanted Carol and Simon to be together instead, just because"

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."

"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"
