Overview
Er wäscht seine Hände jedesmal mit einem frischen Stück Seife, niemals tritt er auf Pflasterfugen, sein Tagesablauf ist penibel eingeteilt: Der New Yorker Schriftsteller Melvin ist ein exzentrischer Zeitgenosse. Seine Nachbarn fürchten ihn als griesgrämigen Kotzbrocken und Hundehasser. Jeden Tag geht er in dasselbe Café, beleidigt Gäste und Bedienungen. Einzig die resolute Kellnerin Carol kann dem neurotischen Ekelpaket Paroli bieten. Und Melvin zeigt Interesse! Bei einer chaotisch-komischen Autotour mit ihr und seinem schwulen Nachbarn kommt man sich näher. Wird aus Melvin doch noch ein „normaler“ Mensch?

Regisseur James L. Brooks (Zeit der Zärtlichkeit) läßt die sarkastischen Pointen prasseln. Unvergeßliche Glanzrolle für Jack Nicholson und Helen Hunt (die dafür 1998 den Oscar® – Beste/r Hauptdarsteller/in – erhielten), Greg Kinnear (Sabrina) und Cuba Gooding, Jr. (Jerry Maguire). Außerdem wurde der Film mit 3 Golden Globes ausgezeichnet!
