As Good as It Gets (1997)

A single mother/waitress, a misanthropic author, and a gay artist form an unlikely friendship after the artist is in an accident.

Well cast and highly entertaining comedy drama becomes quite sentimental in its final moments, but Jack Nicholson as the old misanthrope is well worth the show.

Halliwell***: "A sour-toned comedy about damaged people that, for all its occasional glibness and th ease with which its prblems are solved, somehow works; it convinces as long as the movie lasts."

Maltin***1/2: "Wonderful comedy-drama...takes the viewer on an emotional journey, with laughs and tears along the way."
