A great romantic-comedy, mostly know by people for that one line Jack Nicholson repeats to a lady admirer of his books "I think of a man, and I take away reason and accountability", it's in many ways a very solid film, that is perhaps slightly to long but never gets boring. Nicholson plays Melvin, a recluse with compulsive-disorder, who makes it a habit of insulting people, this is really enjoyable because they happen to be a lot of racial and queer remarks, this never makes Melvin a monster in the film and they really are enjoyable. As the film progresses, there is a undercurrent of him becoming more tolerant of other people, but there is also a wonderful romantic subplot, where his love for a woman transforms him and makes him come out of his shell. So it's very much half-full kind of a deal. What I find funny and isn't stated directly, is that since he writes romance novels for a living, he does have the ability to relate to woman and we can assume that besides all the heavy neuroticism, his attempts at romance are genuine.
