About the Movie
Jack Nicholson, Helen Hunt, Greg Kinnear and Cuba Gooding, Jr., star in James L. Brooks' hit comedy, As Good As It Gets. Nicholson gives a show-stopping performance as Melvin Udall, an obsessive-compulsive novelist with Manhattan's meanest mouth. But when his neighbor Simon is hospitalized, Melvin is forced to babysit Simon's dog. And that unexpected act of kindness, along with waitress Carol Connelly, helps put Melvin back in the human race.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Wicked, but it works.
Fresh: It's fun to watch Jack Nicholson draw on great reservoirs of bile to play a mean SOB with an obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Rotten: A sporadically funny romantic comedy with all the dramatic plausibility and tonal consistency of a TV variety show.
Fresh: It's a mark of how magically written, directed and acted As Good as It Gets is that we end up loving this film despite knowing how haphazard, scattershot and almost indefinable its charm is.
ONE OF THE BEST!!! PERIOD!!
James L. Brooks scored a big "10" with this one. Jack is brilliant, as the rest of the cast in this great scripted film. If you haven't seen this, Please!!!! rent it NOW!! If you have seen it, Well??? Isn't it time to see it again???
