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.

The ending is still pat, with lots of reasons for optimism, but Something is not as neatly -- or falsely -- resolved as most Hollywood films.

Khouri does get off some hilarious anti-male revenge lines.

Under [Hallstrom's] direction, Something To Talk About seems volatile and fresh, as well as tender and sentimental.

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.

A few stray moments of wit mired amidst a low-key and sleep-inducing presentation.

Horrible "romantic comedy." Great message for the ladies: Forgive your cheating husband because that's the best you can do.

The script by Callie Khouri is somewhat disjointed in structure.

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.
