a lively romantic comedy that is sometimes clever, often hilarious, but overlong

Esperemos que seu sucesso nas bilheterias abra as portas para novos projetos protagonizados por atores veteranos. Quem sabe o filme não se redime desta maneira?

The first half of the film is charming, the second half a bit tedious. There is not much screen chemistry between Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton.

It's the "Odd Couple" turned even.

Gender avenger director Meyers's good natured target practice on a 60-ish Don Juan chasing tender-age babes.

A surprisingly good comedy that managed to exceed expectations basically because of the strong performances of Nicholson and Keaton.

This superficial romantic comedy wastes Keaton's blossoming performance (which Nicholson often steps on anyway).

It's "The Jack Who Came to Dinner."

...not nearly as fun and breezy as it should be, as it's weighed down by a terminally slow pace and overlong running time...

Here's a cynical new subgenre in the ongoing race to the nadir of chick-flick patronization: the December-December romance.

[Keaton and Nicholson] are a throwback to the great romantic comedy couples of Hollywood's golden past as well as an example for the younger generation.

Jack gets away with playing Jack ... because who else does it better? But it's Keaton who keeps their chemistry firing on all cylinders.

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.

For the film's first hour, Meyers' dialogue sparkles.

December 17, 2003
A resplendent love story soiled by an ending that hangs from the rest of the picture as awkwardly as a Florida chad.
| Original Score: 3/4

It's just not the movie it ought to have been -- and that, for a while, it seemed like it would turn out to be

Keaton apologizes for growing old. Nicholson, at a hard won 67 years old, still expects us to believe 25 year-old models think he's hot.

I have loved Jack and Diane in so many things I've seen them in, I hate to admit I don't love them in this.
