As Good As It Gets (1997)


Melvin Udall is an OCD racist dickhead author. Carol Connelly is a single mother/waitress who serves Melvin at her restaurant. Simon Bishop is Melvin’s gay apartment neighbor who ends up with a broken face after walking in on a robbery. These three polar opposites find a way to connect with each other in ways that they’ll never know… and perhaps by seeing each other’s flaws they’ll learn to befriend one another. This was a very beautiful but sad romantic movie. The relationship between Melvin and Carol is so awkward and flimsy that it slaps typical romantic comedies in the face. It was a breath of fresh air to see something different but beautiful at the same time.
