    Though it won some Oscars, I hate this movie. Jack Nicholson is painful to watch, and Helen Hunt is only okay. Watching it feels like a medication wearing off.

    A sporadically funny romantic comedy with all the dramatic plausibility and tonal consistency of a TV variety show.

    Even as you question the central premise, Brooks makes you want to buy into it.

    Over the course of two-and-a-half hours, the film not only gets up on wobbly legs but learns to dance by the closing credits.
