Really good powerful drama about a genius mathematician who works as a janitor in a university, and is able to solve mathematical equations that even the best maths people in the university struggle with..... Nobody suspects Will is the one solving them, when they are left for students to do between classes. ..Will is troubled, gets in trouble with the law, he doesn't know what he wants in life.... Til a down to earth helpful psychologist played by Robin WIlliams gives him the help he needs.... Some emotional scenes in this movie

Quite possibly Matt Damon's best performance. Robin Williams won his first and only oscar for his role as Will's therapist. I think it's funny how two of his four Academy Award nominated performances are essentially the same role, this and Dead Poets Society. It's also the film that made Elliott Smith famous for the beautiful soundtrack. How 'bout them apples?

By far, definitely some of the best performances from Robin Williams, Matt Damon, and Ben Affleck. The film crafts an emotional love story and coming-of-age journey without feeling overdone and overly melodramatic. The famous Williams-Damon scene has been parodied a lot, but it really is a powerful moment in a very strong scene.

Excellent Screenplay!!

I loved this movie. I absolutely loved it. I was fascinated by every single aspect of it. Sure, the plot wasn't the most realistic, but who cares? Movies are entertainment, and that's all. The profanity was not that excessive if you spend any time at all with many lower to middle-class people around the age of the characters. In fact, it was downright realistic. As for the acting, it was wonderful watching Damon portray this character who has to struggle with what he thinks he wants, what he is told he should want, and what he finally realizes he really wants. No, I don't think it was the best performance of the year, but it was definitely one of the top five and worthy of a Best Actor nomination. The chemistry between him and Minnie Driver was electric, particularly during their first da...

Easily one of the greatest movies of all time. The plot is great, the acting is phenominal, and the meaning is excellent.

The movie is about a troubled working class Boston kid named Will Hunting (Matt Damon) who is an absolute genius at math but has a bad criminal record. Instead of honing his skills, he spends alot of his time drinking wth his friends and beating up people who piss him off. Hey, we can all understand that. One day, however, he starts beating up this a***ole at a playground, and his arrested after accidentally hitting a cop. The judge makes him go to counseling and hone his math skills with an MIT proffessor (Stellan Skarsgard). Afte driving away several therapists, he meets his match with Dr. Sean McGuire (Robin Williams), who helps him see the light and allows him t...

Good Will Hunting

I Loved. This. Movie. Actually, the main character, who Matt Damon plays reminds me of the main character from A Beautiful Mind, before he went schizo. And this might sound sortta strange, and probably no one will agree, but I reckon that Matt Damon looks like what the 13 year old Leonardo Di Caprio should have grown up to look like (okay, so this is the first movie I've sen with Matt Damon). So now I'm gonna stop rambling on about things that don't relate to this movie now.
I really love this film because it's got a little bit of everything. A little bit of comedy, sadness, strangeness, realism, etc. I was surprised that Gus Van Sant directed this film because most of his other movies consist of people walking around, not doing or saying anything. Okay, so I know they are supposed to be...
