As Good As It Gets Reviews

A sporadically funny romantic comedy with all the dramatic plausibility and tonal consistency of a TV variety show.

The trouble lies in the rambling narrative, Brooks' cautious direction and the cosy tone which renders the whole thing reminiscent of an extended sitcom.

Romance comedies definitely come better than this, although perhaps not lately.

It's fun to watch Jack Nicholson draw on great reservoirs of bile to play a mean SOB with an obsessive-compulsive disorder.

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.

Part of the appeal of this comedy is that Melvin's transformation never gets sappy.

The movie succeeds at many moments even while pursuing its doomed grand design.

Hunt delivers one of the year's most appealing performances as a Brooklyn single mother.

I'd go to As Good as It Gets and not worry too much about its structural ungainliness.

Nicholson struggles for the core of the man but never gets it; so, in most scenes, he resorts to working his face, with grimaces and sneering smiles and lip-pursings in place of acting.

An actor's movie full of little pleasures, with a few unexpected sparks.

Utterly false, like all sitcoms, but that's not necessarily a terrible thing.

An almost-convincing imaginary universe.

How [Brooks] emerged an abler artist is worth puzzling over; I suspect it has something to do with sheer instinct triumphing over industry machinery.
