Nicholson is just superb, if you have a big heart watch this oneBy LD from Herts , 05 Mar 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]The film opens in such a way that you are immediately given the ingredients to make instant decisions on your opinion of the four main characters.
Melvin (Nicholson) is an obsessive, cruel bigot, hating everyone and everything and living next to ..
Simon (Kinnear)a talented gay artist who adores his dog
Hunt plays Carol an exceptionally patient waitress, who is the only one in the restaurant that will tolerate serving Melvin, despite his outrageous comment about her seriously sick son who she worships.
The fourth character is Simon's dog. If there was an Oscar for animal acting this dog would get one. Just wonderful!
The film then takes you on wonderful trip on how their characters develop and change, as a result of them being forced into each others company
I will not spoil the film by revealing anymore other than to highly recemmend it.
It's a film that delivered everything for me, with great acting and an intelligently witty and thought provoking script.

everybodies' life!By mtomat (2 reviews) , 05 Jan 2013this is absolutely the best movie ever made. please, pay attention to all the little details, to the mistakes made in life and how much you should change (on both sides), to acceptance and fear, nastiness and bitterness, kindness and worries. it is so wonderfully constructed and photographed... the perfect movie ever!
Wacky feel good love storyBy morphix (30 reviews) , 22 Dec 2012It's Jack, doing crazy mad bad tempered Jack...what he does best...throw in some phobia neurosis, a love-hate relationship with a cute little dog and a waitress half his age and you got a charming love story that makes you feel all warm and happy at the end. Nicholson fans definitely won't be disappointed. I enjoyed seeing 'show me the money' Cuba Gooding in it too..very funny guy.
Beyond RomComBy pulteneyloon (14 reviews) , 28 Nov 2012OK I finally give in. I have so enjoyed watching this movie - coming on 6 times now, I think that it is the best black romcom that Hollywood has made. The ensemble acting is first rate, Helen Hunt impeccable and Jack Nicholson - there are no words. He so inhabits the character that you go through the same emotions has his co-players. Yes, it has a sugary tinge but it is great piece of off-kilter humour with romance tossed in.
