Paul Newman earned an Oscar nomination (and won citations from the New York Film Critics Circle and the Berlin International Film Festival) for his performance in this well-drawn comedy-drama. Sully (Newman) is a 60-year-old man who emotionally seems to have never quite emerged from adolescence; scraping by on part-time work in construction, Sully has built a life around avoiding responsibility. He hasn't spoken with his ex-wife (Elizabeth Wilson) in years, he lives in a rooming house owned by his eighth-grade teacher Mrs. Beryl (Jessica Tandy), his best friend is a mildly retarded handyman, Rub (Pruitt Taylor Vince), and he has a crush on Toby (Melanie Griffith), who is half his age and married to Carl (Bruce Willis), who sometimes gives him work. One day, Sully nearly runs into his son Peter (Dylan Walsh) and discovers that he has a grandson he never knew about; for the first time, Sully finds himself thinking that he ought to start behaving like a grown-up -- or at least get to know his family before it's too late. Nobody's Fool also features Gene Saks as Sully's lawyer Wirf, and Philip Seymour Hoffman as the overly-enthusiastic Officer Raymer.

This movie really hits me. Just a good guy trying to do the right thing. Problem is he doesn't always try very hard and he has (as most) his own perception of what's right. But he does do good.

This is one of my favorite films. I love all of the little quirky character and story lines. Paul Newman is wonderful in this are rooting for his Sully to have just one lucky moment in life.

Nobody's Fool is one of Paul Newman's best performances and also one of is most subtle. He really conveys the feeling of a man who has finally realized the mistakes he has made in his life and is making the effort to changes he can. Also very good performances by all the other actors in the film.
