AS GOOD AS IT GETS
April 30, 2012  | By David Bianculli

The Movie Channel, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

This 1997 James L. Brooks movie is a showcase of excellent writing, acting and directing – all of which were duly honored at the Oscars and elsewhere. Helen Hunt plays a diner waitress who both clashes and connects with a difficult regular patron, who has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. He’s played by Jack Nicholson, in a challenging yet successful, and delightful, performance.
