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. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: It's fun to watch Jack Nicholson draw on great reservoirs of bile to play a mean SOB with an obsessive-compulsive disorder. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 7, 2011

Rotten: A sporadically funny romantic comedy with all the dramatic plausibility and tonal consistency of a TV variety show. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

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. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Jan 22, 2006
