Jimmy wants to provide a good life for the woman he loves. He puts up with some strange quirks in the woman he loves and goes against his own instincts of something being not-quite-right to try and make her happy. In addition, he takes care of his ailing, aged father

He was likable because he was gentle and caring and loyal. None of the macho characteristics we see in some other characters.

Jimmy is very likable. I think she was able to show this by the way he cared for his father. I loved the exchange he has with his father. It was obvious to me how much he loved him.

Jimmy was a caring, responsible man. He loved and cared for his father, he loved Dolly in spite of her self-centeredness (in fact he didn't even really see it), and he cared for Vivien. He was trusting and kind. He was sensible and was working toward a goal. He seemed to be a man any woman could fall in love with.

She made him an all-around nice, good guy who would be impossible not to like.

There was just something about Jimmy. He was honorable. He was a character you knew you could depend on. The kind of guy that would make wrong things right. It was apparent in how he stood by Dolly at her most delusional, in how caring he was with Vivien, and how he cared for his father. He was the all around nice guy.

Jimmy was a good guy, but I thought he was a little bit of a wimp for putting up with Dolly's behavior.

Navy Mom said it all. Jimmy had the qualities of a good man. He cared for his father, he wanted to make wrong things right, and wanted to provide a good life for the woman he loved.

I thought both of the male characters were "good men". I really like her portrayal of both of them.

Jimmy is a great contrast to Vivien's husband. I can only echo the things that others have mentioned about his character qualities.
