Something's Gotta Give is one of the year's best films and best comedies as it teams up Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton, who seemed to love every minute they shared onscreen. Nicholson plays a man who only dates girls under 30 and is shocked to find he can fall in love with a woman his own age, played by Diane Keaton, who has never looked better. She gives her best performance since she won an Oscar for Annie Hall and should be on her way to another as a very career sucessful woman who has no confidence with men. It is great to see her reaction to both Nicholson's and Keanu Reeves' character. Nicholson and Keaton light up the screen with every scene they are in and Amanada Peet and Reeves do very well in their supporting role, as does the underused Frances McDormand as Keaton's sister. Nancy Meyers, who had a huge hit with What Women Want, does a much better job here and makes for a great adult romantic comedy featuring actors over 50. A great film that will be remembered.

I just can't remember laughing so much at a recent movie!
I was prepared for a slightly-deranged, lecherous, self-absorbed Jack Nicholson. I mean, what else is new?
I was prepared for a sweet, bright, pretty Diance Keaton. She's a sweetheart, right?
I wasn't prepared for the flat-out laugh-out-loud humor, irony, and wit of this charming comedy! Just so much fun...my wife and I were still chuckling as we walked out of the theater into the parking lot.
I suspect that all baby boomers will get a big kick out of seeing this film - at home or in the theater! A terrific entertainment value.

Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton are charming in this humorous love story about two intelligent, if not totally romantically centered, members of the middle-age set (toward the older end of the range).
Diana Keaton has never been better. This was finally her perfect role. Jack Nicholson was cast in a part that could have been written especially for him. Erica Barry (Keaton) a successful middle-aged playwright who has emotionally and sexually closed herself off after divorcing her husband of 22 years (Paul Michael Glaser, still looking pretty good himself), meets the older man in her young daughter Marin's (Amanda Peet) life. This meeting marked by sudden, unexpected attack of the heart exposes her to successful entrepreneur and playboy Harry Sanborn (Nicholson). Sanborn has 'played at life' all of his 63 years before finally starting to get down to 'living his life' after facing the reality that he might have come close to the end of his life. Proving it never rains but it pours, Barry unexpectedly simultaneously claims the attention of Sanborn's young doctor (Keanu Reeves), some 20 years her junior, who finds her beauty and intelligence magnetically attractive.
During a real rain storm, the genuine romance of the film begins to bloom. The charm of the movie is in looking on as two emotionally-challenged characters experience love, perhaps for the very first time, with all its pitfalls, peaks, comical and embarrassing moments, and the magic, tender, endearing episodes that make true love the roller coaster it always is.
Keaton beautifully handles the over-the-top emotions of falling in love, portraying the highs and the lows, with equal brilliance.

Having read some very mixed reviews for this film, I wasnt sure whether to bother with it or not. I`m glad I did.

Jack Nicholson (Harry) is excellent as an ageing playboy, intent on keeping his love life hassle free, by dating under 30s without baggage. Enter Marin (Amanda Peet) with an awesome set of eyebrows. Harry and Marin take off for her mothers stunning home in the Hamptons, expecting a quiet weekend together. Until Marins mother Erica (Diane Keaton), who has also gone to the house with her sister for the weekend, unexpectedly finds Harry raiding the fridge in his underwear. I think the tone for this film is set as the mother realizes with horror, that Harry isnt a burglar but her daughters boyfriend!

As the title suggests, somethings gotta give. And it does, Harrys heart. Any 64 year old fooling around with Marin to the strains of Marvin Gaye, should ideally get a check up first. Harry is told he is not well enough to travel back to the city for a few days, so finds himself reluctantly marooned at the house with Marins uptight mother. And the love story unfolds.

The setting for this film is beautiful, who doesnt want a home in the Hamptons now? Diane Keaton sparkles and Jack is a hoot. I get the feeling playing this part was as easy for him as falling off a log. You can clearly see the chemistry between himself and Diane.

I wasnt sure about the doctor, Keanu Reeves. He did seem to be wheeled in and out of the film, more as a prop than a real character. Which is a shame as he is a first rate actor. Those who disagree arent watching him properly. Watch again and enjoy his subtle handling of the restaurant scenes with Harry and Erica. Perfect!

If you want a classy film that will make you chuckle, try this one.
