PG-13 | | Comedy, Drama, Romance
A single mother and waitress, a misanthropic author, and a gay artist form an unlikely friendship after the artist is assaulted in a robbery.
In Ironweed (1987), Jack Nicholson told Meryl Streep, "By God, Helen, that's as good as it gets," after her character sings the song, "He's Me Pal," in his honor.
At last she was able to define love... Love was...? Ah!
Melvin Udall: Oh, now I'm pissed! Now I'm really pissed!
When Carol returns from the dinner with Melvin is dark night but when Simon rips his cast to draw her, there is light coming from the window in the back.
Just after the disclaimer of the American Humane Association (The animals used in this film were in no way mistreated...) there is a second disclaimer stating "The actors used in this film were in no way mistreated."
