My Favourite Films - AS GOOD AS IT GETS


As Good As It Gets Poster - Jack Nicholson, Helen Hunt, Greg Kinnear, Jill the dog as Verdell


As Good As It Gets - Jack Nicholson

'As Good As It Gets' is an intelligent, witty, brilliantly directed, absolutely lovely and perfectly cast film.

It stars Jack Nicholson, Helen Hunt and Greg Kinnear as three people with differing problems who between them manage to help each other out.

Nicholson's character Melvin is an obsessive compulsive who can't help being rude to people, Helen Hunt is Carol who has a sickly son and Greg Kinnear is Simon, an artist who loses his confidence, his apartment and hope.

The act of looking after a neighbour's despised dog begins to turn Melvin's life around, and his liking for waitress Carol also helps to awaken Melvin's human side. Burdell is the dog owned by Simon and this helps to bring the two antagonistic neighbours together...over the course of  time.

Between them all, as they all support each other, there forms a close, tightly knit bond.

Released in 1997, this film became a firm favourite of mine very quickly, and I've watched it many times since then.
