"As Good as It Gets"

A nice, slight 1997 movie ... "As Good as It Gets" with Jack Nicholson, Helen Hunt, Greg Kinnear and Cuba Gooding Jr.

The premise is small, but the characters are, for once, credible and interesting.

I liked it and wondered, not for the first time, why fictions shy from the weird and helter-skelter qualities that human beings can exhibit. What's wrong with a symphonic truth ... even in fiction? One-note characters may be consoling, but they are exhausting.
