I've been living and working in Hong Kong since 2016 as an SEO Professional.

The film As Good As It Gets from 1997 is referred to as Mr. Cat Poop in Hong Kong. When it was first made available to audiences in the United States, the film was given the title As Good As It Gets. On the other hand, the film was marketed and distributed in Hong Kong under the name Mr. Cat Poop.

The main character of the film is an obsessive-compulsive novelist named Melvin Udall, who is portrayed by Jack Nicholson. Melvin suffers from OCD.

The movie received positive reviews and did well at the box office in the United States. On the other hand, it did not fare well with the people of Hong Kong. Because there is a scene in the film in which Melvin Udall accidentally steps into cat excrement, Mr. Cat Poop has become a moniker for the film.
