I love As Good as It Gets so much.
It came out in 1997 and I went to go see it with my mom and my dad. I was 11 and in middle school and I remember sitting in the theater and seeing a few girls I knew from school walking in. They didn’t see me. Half way through the movie, they got up and left. Next week at school I heard them talking about how boring it was. IDIOTS. I LOVED IT.
And will continue to love it forever more.
Frankly, I will not consider my life to be worthwhile until I own a Brussels Griffon like Verdell.
Anyway - it’s now available to watch instantly on Netfilx. This means nothing to me (since it’s one of the first movies I ever owned on DVD), but…. maybe you aren’t lucky enough to own it.
I also urge you to look at the As Good as It Gets imdb page because Jill the Dog is actually listed as a cast member. & the trivia page includes so many gems. Can you imagine if John Travolta had actually ended up playing Melvin? THE HORROR.
