Overview
Jack Nicholson, Helen Hunt, Greg Kinnear and Cuba Gooding, Jr., star in James L. Brooks' hit comedy, AS GOOD AS IT GETS.

Nicholson gives a show-stopping performance as Melvin Udall, an obsessive-compulsive novelist with Manhattan's meanest mouth. But when his neighbor Simon is hospitalized, Melvin is forced to babysit Simon's dog. And that unexpected act of kindness — along with waitress Carol Connelly — helps put Melvin back in the human race. "Magically written, directed and acted, AS GOOD AS IT GETS is the best and funniest romantic comedy of the year." — Kenneth Turan, LOS ANGELES TIMES
