Something to Talk About is at its best when Khouri's juicy script is adroitly mixing comedy and pathos.

In [Khouri's] zeal to portray a world full of male scum, she creates a morally mismatched, pandering scenario.

Everything about Something to Talk About feels off by a few beats.

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.

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.

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.
