Not one of Alexander Payne's best films, but it's still a good film in its own right. Solid script. Great performances from Nicholson and Kathy Bates who steals just about every scene she's in.

This is a tasteful, well-acted film. With a moving story and some terrific humor, 'About Schmidt' seems to work on all levels. What stands out for me, is the wonderful acting range of Jack Nichsolson. I was struck especially, by Nicholson's fragile yet brash performance. He has such a delicious way of blending humor with raw emotion. Kathy Bates is sizzling as usual. And although there are some slow moments, the film overall, works well. If you enjoy wholesome self-discovery stories, I urge you to check this one out! B+

Although I generally love Alexander Payne's quirky visual style, I especially love this film for its subtle dialogue and visual cues. It's a pretty "quiet" film, but one that still manages to be funny, while being introspective.

A strange and disconnected story. Bates was very good and there are some funny parts. Lots of disturbing parts also.

I think that this is a highly underrated movie. It's certainly one of Nicholson's best. It's funny, and a little sad as well. The best scene is, of course, the one where Kathy Bates goes topless. That, was f***in' awesome! Kathy Bates RULES!

About Schmidt is not the happiest of films - and it doesn't paint the Midwest in the best light. However, it makes one examine their own life puts it into focus. Some people might classify this film as boring - I think it's anything but.
