One review

  • “As Good as It Gets” is a very funny movie, filled with great acting. Jack Nicholson is absolutely perfect, and Helen Hunt deserves a good nomination also. An excellent cast does justice to an equally fine script. What makes so great about it, is the simple but perfect character driven plot. This is one of those movies you can watch with just about anyone. I can recommend it!
