As Good as it Gets
Okay romantic comedy
An okay romantic comedy that really is not perfect but slightly entertaining. I found the characters fine enough, although I thought Nicholson's character changed a bit too quickly and slightly unnaturally. The movie is okay, and is good but not overly brilliant in any way. The acting is almost all great except Helen Hunt I still find to be incredibly annoying no matter what, and her character really I just was annoyed by and what hurt the film the most.
Oscar Win Best Actor Jack Nicholson 3/5- Basically a standard Jack Nicholson performance but on the good side of that where he is not completely doing his standard stuff like I felt he was in Terms of Endearment. He sells the character well in both forms and helps the transition be as believable as he can make it since the script did not allow it to fully be. Not a brilliant work and unseen by him but good work.
Oscar Nominee Best Supporting Actor Greg Kinnear 3/5- Kinnear sells his character the best he can without making the character overly annoying or improper. He does actually do a good job, in all the phases of his character throughout the film even though I did not see a brilliant job here but again a good one.
