Vintage Nicholson and Keaton, like fine wines, improve with age.

...an adult romantic comedy populated by pleasant people who say witty, charming things and have about them an air of unforced sophistication.

Nancy Meyers squanders the abundant talents at her disposal on a film whose look and vision seem to have been borrowed from commercials for cholesterol medications.

Something's Gotta Give is an entertaining romp with two fantastic actors, but a lack of concern for its story is ultimately the film's death.

Keaton has been handed the role of a lifetime, a Ferrari among Edsels, and she floors that baby from start to finish.

Something's Gotta Give is a delightful romance movie, but most likely will be categorized as a "Chick Flick".

"Something's Gotta Give" makes for good repeat viewing on DVD.

This ugly, repugnant ending, which I won't describe but you can surely guess before you buy a ticket, had me feeling like I'd wasted ninety minutes of my human existence.

'Tierna, romántica, encantadora y con un elenco de alto calibre, es una de esas cintas que nos recuerdan que el amor no tiene edad. Una verdadera delicia'

Keaton delivers her best performance in years...But finally, the something that gives in Something's Gotta Give is Myers' good sense of direction.

"Something's Gotta Give" gives us a good first hour... then it just gives up.

Window to the Movies

Although it uses a debate-friendly topic as its narrative fulcrum, it's really just a simple romance that delivers the same ol' message about love loosening people up.

The moments between the characters are absolutely full. It's a pleasure to watch such consummate professionals.

Messy and scatterbrained at times, but overall a wired and frequently witty rom-com.

Ms. Keaton projects her wondrously warm personality, and the erstwhile Jake Gittes keeps us entertained with a sense of irony that keeps things from getting too sticky.
