Curmudgeon Melvin Udall (Jack Nicholson) is a neurotic romantic writer who enjoys insulting his neighbour, artist Simon Bishop (Greg Kinnear), and being rude to waitress Carol (Helen Hunt) at his local restaurant. However, when Simon is hospitalised, it falls to Melvin to look after his pet dog, Verdell. An emotional thaw begins to set in, and when Carol misses stints at the restaurant due to her son’s asthma, Melvin pays for him to have proper medical attention. A budding romance with Carol is threatened, however, by Melvin’s obsessive neuroses.
Jack Nicholson and Helen Hunt each won Oscars for their performances in this prickly comedy directed by James L. Brooks.
