Mr. Monotonous rides again!

This is definitely a movie that plays with far more power on the home screen than it does in a theater where the director's monotonous TV style, with its tendency to rely on close-ups to carry the emotive action, can become very irritating.

It is indeed fortunate that players of the caliber of Nicholson and Hunt can make the best of searching close-ups (they also have the best lines), whereas Kinnear, Gooding and Knight, lacking a similar box-full of histrionic tricks, tend to out-stay their welcome.

It's not surprising that Nicholson and Hunt carried off the year's Best Acting awards. In fact, both players are so skillful, they can even hide holes in the script and its inconsistencies of characterization.

Birds of Different Feathers Sometimes Flock Together

How can a mean-spirited, foul-mouthed homophobic man be friends with a soft-hearted gay artist, and even make a beautiful waitress fall in-love with him? Watch this tale of unlikely friendships and romance to find out.

I have to say that I enjoyed the story. Jack Nicholson delivered some of the darkly humorous lines. He nailed it. The seemingly meanest man on Earth actually has a good heart, and I find that endearing. I wish his character was explored more, we don't know so much about his past or why he is so scornful. Helen Hunt is magnificent. Her quick changes of reaction, from being angry to sad to happy and so on, are just perfect. She really deserved her Oscar win, and so did Nicholson.

It's a good romantic comedy movie you can enjoy watching on a lazy afternoon. It's funny, it can be sad, and at times moving, especially when he cried because Greg already took back the dog. The ending is really nice.

Enjoyable piece of cinema

"As Good as It Gets" is a movie that stuck on my watchlist for months. Somehow, I always found an excuse not to watch it. When I finally did, I was a bit surprised, both negatively and positively. Story is lovely. We have characters we can (mostly) sympathize with. Acting is (mostly) on very high level(especially Jack Nicholson), but... Who the hell put Helen Hunt in this movie? For God's sake, this woman is a bad (mediocre at best) actress. And honestly, I don't know why, between actresses like Kate Winslet and Judi Dench, she won the Best Actress. Goddamn enough for me to give this movie lower rating.
