REVIEWS:





"James L. Brooks's 'As Good as It Gets' echoes the quirky
appeal of his 'Broadcast News,' and that's high praise. Nobody does
a better job of backing characters into happiness than Mr. Brooks,
especially when those characters are high-strung enough to leave
happiness practically out of the question."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; December 23, 1997







"There's something about Jack Nicholson that makes you want
to grin. Maybe it's the anticipation that you'll see him get away
with something. He's the guy who knows the angles. His screen persona
was established for all time the moment he told the waitress to hold
the chicken salad between her knees in 'Five Easy Pieces.' .... It
becomes clear that Melvin [Nicholson] has been destined by the
filmmakers to become a better man: First he accepts dogs, then
children, then women, and finally even his gay neighbor. But
[James L.] Brooks and [Mark] Andrus, having blocked out this
conventional progression, then write against it, using rich irony
so that individual scenes seem fresh even while the overall
progress follows ancient custom."

-- Roger Ebert; December 22, 1997
