Critic Reviews for Something's Gotta Give
The movie, which ricochets between farce and poignancy, casts just enough romantic pixie dust to leave you smiling. It's certainly not the last word on the subject, but it's an amiable start.
The moments between the characters are absolutely full. It's a pleasure to watch such consummate professionals.
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.
A comedy of manners (and mannerisms) with two of the most mannered movie stars of our time, Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson, acting all over the place until you surrender with the ecstasy of pure pleasure.
Audience Reviews for Something's Gotta Give
I ran across this on TV, and decided to see it for the second time and enjoyed it. I have not read up on Jack Nicholson's private life, but one wonders if he is just playing himself in this movie. I supposed the attraction of the movie is that true love can even overcome an obnoxious personality.
An arrow aimed directly at women, aged 45 and up, that actually hurts anyone other than that expressed audience to watch. It may injure even those intended with its simplistic pigeonholing of women, no matter how successful or how professional, still defining themselves solely by the men around them. There's plenty of stomach churning groans ahead, be warned, altho I'd watch McDormand watch grass grow (I like her that much ... and she'd make it interesting anyway!).
A very interesting Rom Com, not a perfect one, but Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton make this a wonder and a treat and is considered one of my favorite Diane Keaton films.
