About Schmidt Rating 4 out of 5


  • Alexander Payne


  • Jack Nicholson
  • Kathy Bates
  • Dermot Mulroney
  • Hope Davis


Jack Nicholson is at his curmudgeonly best as Warren Schmidt, an old duffer who, struggling to come to terms with retirement, goes on a cross-country mission to stop his estranged daughter (Hope Davis) from marrying her dimwit beau (Dermot Mulroney). Following his brilliant Sideways, writer-director Alexander Payne continues his examination of the male mid-to-late life crisis with another heady blend of dry wit and bittersweet drama. Kathy Bates provides fruity undertones as the groom's skinny-dipping mother.
