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

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

Fresh: One of the year's best. – Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune, Jun 24, 2010

It gets better and better with every viewing!

This is a terrific film, and one that should not be missed. To be honest, there are a few lines of dialog here and there that feel a tad unnatural, but that's easy to forgive, because it's such a wonderful movie. Greg Kinnear, always great, is a gem here. I highly recommend it.

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???
