A talky, off-kilter romantic comedy from James L. Brooks that?s neither entirely romantic nor entirely comedic and never finds a confident center. Still, it?s fun to watch Jack Nicholson draw on great reservoirs of bile to play a mean SOB with an obsessive-compulsive disorder who is partially humanized by his contact with Helen Hunt (well, who wouldn?t be?) as a put-upon waitress and single mom. With Greg Kinnear as a sweet gay painter and devoted dog owner.
