"Some have great stories, pretty stories that take place at lakes with boats and friends and noodle salad. Just, no one in this car. But, a lot of people, that's their story. Good times, noodle salad. What makes it so hard is not that you had it bad, but that you're that pissed that so many others had it good."Melvin Udall (Jack Nicholson)
This is one of the best movies I'v seen. I caught it again on HBO this week and I felt the same - mixed emotions. CONTENTMENT is the message of the movie. It's only human to want something better than what we already have and this usually leads to discontent. It should be under the genre "horror - comedy" because it frightens me to think that what I have now might be 'as good as it gets!"
