December 11, 2003
The problems lie not in the movie's ideas or casting, but in the sitcom-like screenplay employed by writer/director Nancy Meyers, and in the inability of the filmmakers to cut the movie down to a reasonable length.

It's really no more than a coy wish list for all the women who ever wanted to bring Jack Nicholson to heel.
December 11, 2003
At times hilarious and definitely the best date movie in theaters, but that's not saying all that much.

Something's Gotta Give is trite and overly cloying for its own good to the point that the pretentiousness factor is as jumpy as Nicholson's devilish facial expressions
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

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.

December 25, 2003
This superficial romantic comedy wastes Keaton's blossoming performance (which Nicholson often steps on anyway).

Sending up Jack Nicholson's real-life penchant for dating younger women, Something's Gotta Give benefits greatly from his rascally screen presence.

Nicholson and Keaton aren't done justice by the picture's...extraneous, elongated twists and turns of the heart on its way to the pat ending you always knew would come.

Meyers couldn't resist living up to her predisposed reputation with an ending so false that it's almost indescribable.

Am I the only one who's tired of seeing Jack Nicholson doing his best Jack Nicholson impersonation?
December 13, 2003
If you've seen the previews, you've already watched the best parts of 'Something's Gotta Give.'
December 16, 2003
Any hints at sophistication -- and there are many -- are constantly undermined by smarminess and cornball predictability.

More disgusting than funny.

January 6, 2004
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?

A standard-issue bog of glossy idiocy and audience disrespect.
December 11, 2003
All the romantic comedy cues are firmly in place, buttressed by none of the substance.
