    Brilliant!

    Though Jack Nicholson gives an undeniably spectacular performance in About Schmidt, it appears as though the public has been inundated with hype for his emoting. Meanwhile, I strongly recommend noting the movie's breathtaking dialogue, devastating depiction of Middle America disillusion, and extraordinarily accurate portrayal of human error, sacrifice, and love. The wit overflows with genius, but manages this rare feat without being precocious or pretentious. Watch for more outstanding work by Alexander Payne, and, as if anyone harbored doubts, Jack Nicholson as well.
