As Good As It Gets. A single mother/waitress, a misanthropic author, and a gay artist form an unlikely friendship.
Jack Nicholson, Helen Hunt, Greg Kinnear and Cuba Gooding, Jr., star in James L. Brooks' hit comedy, As Good As It Gets. Nicholson gives a show-stopping performance as Melvin Udall, an obsessive-compulsive novelist with Manhattan's meanest mouth. But when his neighbor Simon is hospitalized, Melvin is forced to babysit Simon's dog. And that unexpected act of kindness, along with waitress Carol Connelly, helps put Melvin back in the human race.
The structured world of a sour, obsessive-compulsive author crumbles when he's drawn into the lives of a stressed-out single mom and his gay neighbor.
The Academy Award(r)-winning (best actor Jack Nicholson, best actress Helen Hunt) offbeat comedy celebrates the unique bond between three very different characters. Also stars Greg Kinnear.
Sarcastic novelist Melvin Udall suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder. Single mother Carol Connelly struggles to raise her asthmatic son. Artist Simon Nye is brutally mugged. Despite unhappiness, the three discover their fates intertwined.
