LeAnn Rimes Curb 9 If We Fall in Love Rod Stewart Warner 10 Til Always Be Right Bryan Adams Movie Review the artists dog down the garbage chute Udall then is confronted about the incident by Kinnear and his partner Cuba Gooding but refuses to admit his transgression But Udall has a softer side as seen when frequenting his favorite restaurant and sitting at his table served by Carol a single mother Helen Hunt who is the only one who can handle Melvin By this point at least half of the plot becomes predictable Udall will somehow fall for Carol and in rum shed some of his gruffness and aggressiveness It is only after Kinnear is attacked up to its Nicholson by woutdbe burglars and nearly killed that Udall begins to warm to his neighbor and his dog The three characters are eventually brought together but its the dog that brings the warm side out of Udall As Good as It Gets remained upbeat and surprising despite the inevitable romantic theme thanks in part to a strong performance from Nicholson who makes Udalls strange behaviors very believable Gooding is outstanding and displays his versatility in a supporting role as Kinnear who has come a long way since his days as host of Talk Television junkies also will recognize the performance of Yeardley Smith who plays another of Kinnears friends saddled with the task of cleaning up his life after the attack If Smiths voice sounds familiar it is she provides it for Lisa on The Simpsons and also had a role on Foxs Hermans Hunt shows a great deal of talent in portraying a mother dealing with loneliness of being single and humiliation that comes along with living with her own mother The film begins to drag about twothirds of the way but picks up again at the end as Hunt and Nicholson do finally fall fof each other With so many films to choose this holiday season As Good as It Gets might not be the best of the bunch but it does an excellent job of living up to its title Home Improvement Warehouse 7 Well Help TOW Get
