Funny, but not a light comedy for youngsters.
| Original Score: 4/5
The greatest pleasures come from the acting.
| Original Score: 3/4
The movie's too long, and the direction is sometimes slack -- but the script is crammed with withering ripostes, ably delivered by Nicholson and Hunt.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Not only one of the best romantic comedies of the year, but one of the best films in ages.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Both funny and sad, the comedy was in the vein of Brooks' Terms of Endearment, except it was more eccentric and nuttier and in moments genuinely touching due to strong chemistry between Jack Nicholson and Helen Hunt.
| Original Score: B-
The character is written as the most unlikable person one could ever meet. Despite this fact, Jack manages to make the character sympathetic.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
The unpredictable and fresh 'As Good As It Gets' is peppered with memorable Brooks lines and physical schtick.
| Original Score: A+
...a precariously balanced movie, one that flirts with smugness. That it isn't awful is in some respects amazing.
| Original Score: B+
... it coaxes us to be more open to each other, more compassionate, and more loving.
| Original Score: B
Like Broadcast News, James L. Brooks' new film is a dark-edged adult comedy that hits the spot for those who like their romances splashed with acidic wit.
Even the familiar scenes and situations look refreshing.
| Original Score: 7/10
| Original Score: 3/4
Humorous, romantic, personal.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
An honest, original comedy about recognizable human beings.
| Original Score: 4/4
This is Jack at his best, the kind of role that makes him a star. He gets to bear his teeth, take control of a room, and be devilishly cuddly at the same time.
Nicholson is so darn good!
'Melhor É Impossível' é muito mais do que um roteiro bem-escrito. Este é um filme que se apóia totalmente nas interpretações de seus atores principais.
Romance comedies definitely come better than this, although perhaps not lately.
Don't judge people too quickly. Never write anyone off. Even the weirdest and most irritating people are full of surprises.
