About Schmidt

Is about as depressing as a movie can get.

About Schmidt is about a retired guy (Jack Nicholson) who is severally depressed and through out the film he tries to find a purpose to his life. So Jack Nicholson is a good actor, he plays this guy really, really well and I don't fault him for that but the movie just didn't do it for me, I found it to be severally depressing and the supposedly spiritual uplifting/moving ending was not enough to make the viewer feel better about wasting the last couple of hours watching this depressing garbage.
