Common Sense Media

Funny, but not a light comedy for youngsters.

The greatest pleasures come from the acting.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

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.

Dark Horizons

Not only one of the best romantic comedies of the year, but one of the best films in ages.

Emanuel Levy

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.

Film Threat

The character is written as the most unlikable person one could ever meet. Despite this fact, Jack manages to make the character sympathetic.

Kansas City Kansan

The unpredictable and fresh 'As Good As It Gets' is peppered with memorable Brooks lines and physical schtick.

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

...a precariously balanced movie, one that flirts with smugness. That it isn't awful is in some respects amazing.

Looking Closer

... it coaxes us to be more open to each other, more compassionate, and more loving.

Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)

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.

An honest, original comedy about recognizable human beings.

Combustible Celluloid

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.

Cinema em Cena

'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.
