Valentine's Heartbreakers! week concludes at Trailers from Hell with screenwriter Chris Wilkinson introducing James L. Brooks' "As Good as It Gets," starring Helen Hunt and Jack Nicholson, who both won Oscars for their lead performances; Greg Kinnear was nominated for his Best Supporting turn.
The fourth feature from writer-director-producer James L. Brooks (Terms of Endearment, Broadcast News, I'll Do Anything) focuses on a dysfunctional, obsessive-compulsive novelist in Greenwich Village (Jack Nicholson), the gay painter who lives next door (Greg Kinnear), and a waitress and single parent (Helen Hunt) who breaks through his crusty shell. Funny and painful, with top notch performances by all.
