"Good Will Hunting" won the Best of Matt Damon category among Shat The Movies, and we can see why. Damon didn't just star in the movie, he co-wrote it with Ben Affleck when the two were just a couple of fresh-faced actors.
This ode to Boston showed us Robin Williams' dramatic side, which we later realized was tragic foreshadowing, and it introduced us to a young Casey Affleck before his sexual harassment scandal.
To Kerri Gross, "Good Will Hunting" is a moving emotional journey. To Dick Ebert, it's the greatest film Shat The Movies has ever reviewed. To Gene Lyons, it's a brilliant collection of improvised scenes that he predictably wishes were darker.
