    Well I've seen this movie quite a few times now and I'd say it's a great movie to watch, I'd give it a 5 star rating but not really much happens in this movie, just a movie with a good story to it, that's all I can say about that. Now I'm waiting for good will hunting 2: hunting season to come out.
  • Good movie with almost 0% probability/reality.

    In early 1997, I was talking with somebody who was staying in the United States of America. I told the person that I wanted to be a (counselling) psychologist. The person almost stopped me to pursue the career. Later in 2004, I realised that that's what I wanted to do in my lifetime. Then, I pursued my doctoral degree in counselling psychology in U.S.A. This might be an example for how unrealistic this movie could be, regardless how touching or good this movie is. Simple calculation of [hidden] genius people: Smart children are very easy to be discovered throughout childhood in every educational system around the world. Even the smart child is extremely introvert, others surrounding the child will not leave the person alone. From smart kinds, they have to have career for living. What do they choose? Mostly, what they can do better is highly probable career choice. Even those they do not exactly on their career paths, they will stick to t least adjacent career/fields with many reasons. Maybe, they are good at, it's easy to earn money, they feel efficient, others just want to utilise their abilities, etc. Therefore, literally, the probability of having case similar to Matt Damon's case in this movie is NEAR 0%. The [gay] therapist told to Matt Damon that "Lunatic." Indeed, finding genius kids from out-of-nowhere is Lunatic. That's why this is fictional movie, although some elements are based on facts of one person.

    Honestly it's a great movie. It has a great screenplay that I think deserved it's award for sure, and the acting from Matt Damon and Robin Williams was top-notch. You really get to care for Will as you watch the movie, and you really feel emotions. Although Titanic is a good movie and all, I really think Good Will Hunting should have won Best Picture of 1997. The film is powerful, well written, well acted, effortlessly funny and touching.
  • One of my favorite films...

    Williams is great, Damon is great, and I really enjoy the film. Even after watching it for... the 10th time or so? Really great movie that has aged well.

    Now a days, most people have either heard of or haven't heard of this film. You may not be interested in seeing this film, but you as not doing yourself a favor by not seeing this film as it is one of the most incredible experiences that I have ever experienced. The acting is phenomenal, Robin Williams gives the greatest performance of his career and easily my favorite performance from an actor ever. Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and Minnie Driver all give such realistic and great performances as well. This is one of the most, if not the most, well written film I have ever seen. It is a film, I can sit down and watch, and it always enthralls me and gives me such incredible emotion. This and It's A Wonderful Life are honestly the two most perfect films I have ever seen. This film is a nearly flawless experience. You may think you know the story and where it will probably go, but there is nothing like experiencing this masterpiece of cinema.
