The first Batman movie wouldn't have been as good without Jack Nicholson. I also liked his performance in 'The postman always rings twice'.
Nicholson got his start on two episodes of the Andy Griffith Show. He starred as an innocent man on trial for theft and as a dad whose baby was abandoned. I give MR.Nicholson a 5 star rating.

Of the many actors that played the Joker from Batman, he was the best of them!

Although I'm a Laker hating Spurs fan, I have to give him 4 stars.

Don't get me wrong, he's a good actor - but the only role I really remember this actor for is playing the Joker in Tim Burton's Batman movie.

Jack Nicholson 5

One of America's greats of the silver screen, he throws himself at every role he plays with his whole being, he has never phoned it in. And he can play it over the top or understated with equal pinache. Along with Michael Caine he is having one of the finest "third acts" in the history of movie careers, selecting roles that capitalize on his age and experience instead of denying them. 

UPDATE:  OK, I just saw The Bucket List on TV.  So he's phoned it in once.  I also started to notice that he's beginning to look like a Muppet of himself.

Very creepy individual & a pompous ass.  I've never understood his appeal at all.  He isn't that great an actor & he's always been ugly to me.  I don't understand what any woman sees in him since he has the morals of an alley cat-and that's insulting to alley cats.  I hear that he's slowed down some since he's getting so old & even uglier.  Just another creepy horn-dog.

My personal favorite Nicholson character was the Joker. I just read an interview where he claimed he was upset that he wasn't even considered for the role in the new Batman movie.

Nicholson has been nominated as an actor for an Academy Award 12 times and has won three times (twice for Best Actor and once as Best Supporting Actor). He is tied with Walter Brennan for most acting wins by a male actor (three), and second to Katharine Hepburn for most acting wins overall (four). He is also one of only two actors nominated for an Academy Award for acting (either lead or supporting) in every decade since the 1960s; the other is Michael Caine. He has won seven Golden Globe Awards, and received a Kennedy Center Honor in 2001. In 1994, he became one of the youngest actors to be awarded the American Film Institute's Life Achievement Award. He is best known for his films Chinatown, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, As Good as It Gets, Tim Burton's Batman, and Martin Scorsese's The Departed.

  Absolutely terrific actor, not to mention one that once made many a woman swoon.  His manic smile could offten appear maniacal, but he was always able to charm the fans.  My favorite movies:

1. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

2. Shining

3. Chinatown

4. Batman!

Always seems to play a bad guy or kook.  He's been around a long time, though and still is going strong.  He could be considered in the classic category as well as current

He's an icon. He's been acting since the late '50s and is still going strong. His occasional schtick and unusual mannerisms have never put me off. He's versatile, good in drama -- from good guys (e.g., Chinatown) to bad guys (e.g., The Departed), comedy (e.g., As Good as it Gets), and things in between (e.g., Batman, The Shining). He's been nominated for Oscars at least 12 times and has won at least 3 times. I've always liked him since the first time I saw him in a film, and he hasn't disappointed me very often.

I have to say that I absolutely love this man! He is in some of my all time favorite movies with "As Good As It Gets" right at the top of that list. I have not seen all of his work, but I can't think of anything that I have watched with him in it that I didn't like.

From watching him courtside at Laker games and listening to his views on things when he makes appearances on talk shows, I don't think I'd care to know him personally. However, he is one heck of a versatile actor. His persona in "The Shining" has to be one of the most riveting of all time.

Look, I love Jack. . .but he's been gravy-training the same schtick for 30 years. . .not that he isn't entertaining- but he's somewhat overrated as a 'great' actor despite some memorable roles. He's good at what he does and he does a terrific job of staying in his comfort zone.

I have liked many of the movies in which he stars; but face it folks, he always plays the same part. He always plays Jack "smartass" Nicholson. I guess that's ok since he gets all the adulations.

He's had more sorry roles than good ones. To me he's overrated and acts with the same expressions on his face over and over again. It got to the point that when he was in a movie, I couldn't see his character...only Jack. I won't even watch anymore films he is in because I know I will not like them.

As a thespian, Nicholson stands with the Gods. Indeed, I rate him as the greatest cinema actor of all time - a star who has played characters ranging from the exquisitely complex to the manically boisterous. Jack seduces...and how!

It's hard not to compare the contemporary careers of Jack and Bob DeNiro. Both are actors of extraordinary talent. DeNiro seems to have resigned himself to doing unchallenging roles in uninspired movies, which gets him a steady paycheck but I can't imagine he takes much pride in his work of the past 10 or so years. Nicholson, too, has made his share of average, even mediocre, movies. Just when you start thinking he's going to reprise his patented Nicholson shtick yet again, he astonishes you with the power and intensity of his performance. I can never forget his role in Hoffa. Not a great movie, but Nicholson was astonishing. In 10 or less minutes, I forgot I was watching Nicholson. I was watching Hoffa. To me, the hardest thing for an actor to do is play someone famous from our own lifetimes. Anthony Hopkins did it in Nixon, Bruno Ganz did it in the recent Downfall, and Nicholson did it in Hoffa. A truly extraordinary actor. Yes, he'll do something trite like Anger Management but he'll also be in something like About Schmidt. If he's not the best, he's one of America's best actors.
