The feminist outrage of Thelma & Louise (1991) screenwriter Callie Khouri blended superbly with director Lasse Hallstrom's predilection for stories about idiosyncratic families in this effective comedy-drama. Julia Roberts stars as Grace King Bichon, a prim small-town wife who is incensed when she learns that her husband Eddie Bichon (Dennis Quaid) is having an affair, and that it's not his first dalliance. Grace embarrasses her husband publicly -- then moves in with her wise-mouthed little

Something to Talk About is at its best when Khouri's juicy script is adroitly mixing comedy and pathos.
Something to Talk About is the kind of movie where you start out wondering how all of these people are related, and end up knowing all too well.
Something to Talk About is weary -- every ounce of energy and originality has long since been wrung out of this formula, and the 'twist' of having the leads already married doesn't do much to spice up things.
Something to Talk About never goes bad, though it does get corny in places, and it hits a couple of dull patches near the finish.
A few stray moments of wit mired amidst a low-key and sleep-inducing presentation.
Dull, dumb and listless.
Horrible "romantic comedy." Great message for the ladies: Forgive your cheating husband because that's the best you can do.
Focuses on the personal renewal of a woman after the break-up of her marriage.
Director Lasse Hallstrom glazes the film with too much faux bluegrass music, and the equine fantasy-world of the King Ranch is so enveloping that it suffocates all aspirations to more serious drama.
Low-key to a fault, Something to Talk About is no more original or compelling than its title.
Yet another 'men are evil' film from Thelma & Louise writer Callie Khouri.
Roberts, Quaid, Duvall, Rowlands and Kyra Sedgewick, who plays Grace's spirited sister, all turn in very personal performances that make Something to Talk About something to see.
Under [Hallstrom's] direction, Something To Talk About seems volatile and fresh, as well as tender and sentimental.
Khouri does get off some hilarious anti-male revenge lines.
