When I was a little boy, I marvelled at the stories of my Uncle, who told of a travelling cinema. Where each saturday afternoon, he, as a child, himself marvelled at his heroes on the screen, while sitting on a plank for a seat. His stories gave me the same love he had for movies, and as I am older now, I am glad to have lived and seen, Jack Nicholson. In this movie particularly, he is as magnificant as he usually is, but, collectively, the performances are beyond words. It is an encounter with these people, we are lucky to share, for until I ever find something better, this to me, is movie making perfection. A masterpiece.

Very few movies have everything,this is that rare exception.
Characters who are utterly believable,dialogue beautifully written,first-class acting and a dog who nearly steals the show.If you need a boost on a bad day,look no further.

It's 10yrs old now and it has not lost any of its freshness.A truly great movie and a high watermark in the career of JN.

this was a great and funny movie and both jack and helen deserved the oscar, but i wish greg could of gotten an oscar too, or he could of at least had a golden globe, he also did a great performance.I also kinda wish james L brooks could have gotten some kind of award too.

Sunglasses- I want to know who made those sunglasses he wore in this movie? And maybe, where can I get a pair?

''Not even if you hear a sound of a thud from my home, and one week later, there's a smell coming from there that can only be a decaying human body, and you have to hold a hanky to your face, because the stench is so thick that you think that you're gonna faint. Even then, don't come knocking.''

Noone could have said it better than movie
