Something's Gotta Give
Schmucks are people too.
Harry Sanborn is an aged music industry exec with a fondness for younger women like Marin, his latest trophy girlfriend. Things get a little awkward when Harry suffers a heart attack at the home of Marin's mother Erica. Left in the care of Erica and his doctor, a love triangle starts to take shape.
i love nancy meyers movies about aging rich people
A bit too long but still a really enjoyable and highly entertaining romantic comedy. Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton are great and share wonderful chemistry, Keanu Reeves turns in a fun supporting performance, and it's just hard not to enjoy.
I love Jack. I love Diane. I know they're friends who go way back and obviously they can be forgiven for wanting to spend time together. Here's a tip, you don't need to make a crap movie to do that.
Nicholson wheels out his tired old man sexy cliche and sleepwalks his way through scenes of farcical social faux pas that wouldn't even make the grade in a French comedy.
"Erica, you are a woman to love." - Harry Sanborn
Something's Gotta Give is a Romantic Comedy that could have been pretty average. Luckily its two main stars didn't let that happen as they elevate the material and use their strong chemistry together to make this film work. The story is nothing spectacular and it is fairly predictable at times, but Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton are both great here. As I said they have great chemistry too and make this an enjoyable film despite its shortcomings. It definitely doesn't need to be as long as it is, but it held my interest and was entertaining throughout. If you're a fan of Jack Nicholson and/or Diane Keaton, I think this one's worth a watch. 7/10
Jack Nicholson- The Shining (I gave 4 stars)
Diane Keaton - The Godfather (I gave 4.5 stars)
Keanu Reeves- The Matrix ( I gave 3.5 stars)
Come together to produce a film called Absolute Trash, or formally known as Something's Gotta Give directed by Nancy Meyers. A film I would not recommend to anyone who didn't want to die of utter boredom.
3 completely different movies in one. The first one is about assholes walking around on stilts. That one sucks. A lot. It's an excuse for rich losers to be boring and unlikable. The second one is about a woman in her mid-60's who finally has great sex. That one is pretty darn good. The third one is about estranged friends trying not to be strangers, and a guy tries to win back a girl who just happens to have written a hit play about their fling where he dies at the end. That one is trying too hard.
If you can make it through the first half hour, you might last the full 2 hours. And 10 minutes. Good luck.
Not sure why I watched this, because in a stunning turn of events, I have been duped into once again seeing Jack Nicholson's saggy old ass. I welcome death at this point.
This movie was not intended for a 21 year old. Maybe I'll try it again in my 50s.
Me: "What's this strange sensation in my chest?" "I think your heart's beating again." "Ooh, that takes me back."
This was so damned charming. Equal parts sexy, funny and, yes, romantic (though everything was woven with a humor that is impossible to resist). Diane Keaton here is who I wanna be - so disarming, enlightened, self-aware and strong at the same time. The emotional turns that happened took me by surprise and even then, they easily and adorably floated on with the overall tone developing. It is not a traditional slap-slap-kiss storyline and I was taken aback (and thoroughly delighted) by it in the absolutely best way. Instead this film delivers something more developed and layered -- and did I…
So much white.
jack nicholson's bare ass cheeks
I love romantic comedies and this is a good one of those. It is kind hearted, funny, and of course has a lesson: Jack Nicholson needs to stop boning 20 year olds. This doesn't seem hard after realizing Diane Keaton is a total fox at 60 or something. Seriously, how the hell does she look that good? See this movie just for that if nothing else.
Say what you will about this film but it succeeds at being a guilty pleasure chick flick and I don't think it's trying to be more. Thank you Nancy Meyers, for knowing how to write and direct a good female rom com.
this was the cheesiest movie and she doesn't even end up with keanu.......but it was great
