As Good As It Gets: 8..5

A good movie which has frequent funny lines that will keep the mood light, even with the more serious relationships plot that the story is built upon. Although much of the humor is bigoted, it is reasonably inoffensive due to the sheer ignorance and mental state of the bigot (Jack Nicholson), and the fact that he is prejudice against just about everything. A good date movie.

Description: Rated: PG-13

Melvin Udall (Jack Nicholson), a cranky, bigoted, obsessive-compulsive writer, finds his life turned upside down when neighboring gay artist Simon (Greg Kinnear) is hospitalized and his dog is entrusted to Melvin. In addition, Carol (Helen Hunt), the only waitress who will tolerate him, must leave work to care for her sick son, making it impossible for Melvin to eat breakfast.
