Melvin Udall is an obsessive-compulsive writer of romantic fiction who’s rude to everyone he meets, including his gay neighbor Simon, but when he has to look after Simon’s dog, he begins to soften and, if still not completely over his problems, finds he can conduct a relationship with the only waitress at the local diner who’ll serve him.
James L. Brooks and Jack Nicholson, doing what they do best, combine smart dialogue and flawless acting to squeeze fresh entertainment value out of the romantic-comedy genre.
