Something's Gotta Give Reviews

It this is only getting a 71% rating, then it's confirmation that the reviews here are SKEWED. This is probably the funniest movie I've ever seen, and while it's a chick flick, I challenge anyone not to laugh out loud at the entire first half of the movie. EVery actor is perfection -- at the top of their game -- and the statement this movie makes about the gender difference as we age could not be made in a more witty, pointed, hilarious fashion. Perfectly cast and perfect set, Something's Gotta Give is perfection. I could watch it over & over again. If Rotten Tomatoes were geared toward women (same w IDMB) this movie would be hovering at 100%. Just sayin. Oh and the beach house is worth watching alone. Nancy Meyer goes to great lengths on her sets and I literally have screen shots of some of the rooms on my screensaver

Composed by the cute, sappy, sentimental stuff standard rom-coms are made of, "Something's Gotta Give" may cleverly acknowledge rom-com tropes, but never does it exceed them.

Trainspotting (1996)

Strong performances with a strong script, about a real subject....

Very funny and touching. A great rainy-dayer. Nicholson and Keaton are charming. It is, though, like a lot of Meyers's work, slightly predictable.

Okay this movie was funny, and romantic. I liked the movie it was entertaining. I guess I like this movie a lot because of Jack Nicholson. Honestly the script was good writing.

Agreablement surprise. Je me suis laisser prendre par cette charmante comédie romantique. J'en ai ris (surtout le moment ou elle n'arrete pas de pleurer.

The plot is familiar, but sometimes it's kind of fun to watch a movie like this as a getaway from reality. Nicholson and Keaton are stellar, and director Nancy Meyers knows how to make smart romantic comedies. Something's Gotta Give is sincere and tender.

Light entertainment but it does have some funny moments and Jack Nicholson. Quite liked this, not sure why, but I did.

For hardcore romance fans of a certain age only. Don't let the big names fool you, you'll be watching shameless pandering for the target demographic audience and an insult for everyone else.

Though it has its funny moments and there are some great performances from Nicholson and Keaton, the movie ends up playing out like your average romantic comedy

In Something's Gotta Give, some people love the chemistry between Jack Nicholson's character Harry Sandborn and Diane Keaton's Erica Barry. I'll admit, they had some good banter and moments, but...let's face it. Harry is a long term womanizer who is dating Erica's own daughter, Marin.

I'll admit, it's interesting to see a crazy love square (not just a simple love triangle but a more complex love square) unfold. Mother and playwright Erica seems to be steeling the heart of her daughter's much older womanizing boyfriend, until a sexy doctor (played by Keanu Reeves) captures her heart instead. Erica seems to be making a very good choice when she finally picks the lovestruck doctor, Julian. Meanwhile, Harry is having regrets that he didn't catch and keep Erica when he had the chance.

It looks like Erica and Julian are moving forward in their relationship and seem very happy, but somehow, at the very end, Erica changes her mind and picks "conformed" womanizer Harry. What!?

I wonder how awkward Erica being with Harry will make things between Erica and her daughter Marin at holiday get-togethers. "Enjoying my ex, Mom?" Hmmmm. Not the ending I wanted, but if Harry makes Erica happy, so be it. Her daughter seemed surprisingly understanding about it, after all.

Surprisingly good. Didn't go in expecting much.

One of my favorite romance films I've ever seen. The chemistry between Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton is phenomenal. This movie shows that true love can be a real thing and age is just a number.

Nancy Meyers is one of my favorite directors, but this is the only one of her movies that I might not watch again. Jack Nicholson plays a character we've all seen him do several times before. As an Oscar winning actor, I expected more from him. Diane Keaton is another favorite of mine, and she was better, but still, not her best performance. I didn't love the plot, but it would have been better if there hadn't been such a fluffy script and average acting. A few scenes were just over the top, and I think it turned out being a little bit cheesier than I expected with 2 A-list actor in it. If you are looking for basic comedy or romance, I would say watch it, but if you're looking for something mind blowing, I would not suggest this movie, or at least suggest a different movie by director Nancy Meyers.
