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.
Film #21 of the February Movie Challenge : Keanu Reeves or Bust!
Lighthearted romantic comedy that puts a smile on my face every single time I sit down and spend an evening with the star studded cast featuring Jack Nicholson, Diane Keaton, Keanu Reeves and Frances McDormand!
Nicholson and Keaton had wonderful chemistry going on between them! And Reeves was perfect in the role as the young doctor and love interest in this 3 ring circus of comedies!
Something's Gotta Give is smart and a funny romantic comedy with fine performances from Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson, despite the film staggering into satirical state at times.
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.
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.
I must have got the unfinished cut of this film because Diane ends up with Jack Nicholson and not Keanu. Super weird.
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.
It's not bad I guess. I mean if you took Jack Nicholson out of it, this would be a truly tedious TV movie style romance, but hey, it just happens to be incredibly watchable because of Nicholson alone. And yes I've seen this before, it's one of my mums favorite films. It was on TV tonight so I just thought why the fuck not, I'll give it another whirl. It killed time. Not atrocious, not amazing. Whatever.
I always liked this film. Charming, simple and warm, and really funny at times. Nice performances from both Jack Nicholson & Diane Keaton. They play off one another very well. Just one of those afternoon movies you'd put on and get swept away in.
I love watching this movie...:)
I hope we fall in love when we're older
Eigentlich sind diese RomComs ja so gar nicht mein Genre, aber bei dem bin ich die Tage im TV zufällig drauf hängen geblieben. Und ja, ich muss zugeben ich hatte meinen Spaß! Jack Nicholson geht ja eigentlich eh immer, aber auch Diane Keaton liefert eine gute Leistung ab. Die beiden harmonieren richtig gut miteinander, spielen sich die Bälle zu und sorgen für einige Lacher... Es muss wohl doch nicht immer Blut und Gekröse sein ;)
Thoroughly entertaining throughout. Great acting by Nicholson and Keaton. Finally a love story that made sense why the two main characters fall for each other -- something that has been missing in movies I've watched recently. Keanu's character and storyline seemed a little forced, but otherwise lived up to expectations.
ALGUÉM TEM QUE CEDER
"Alguém Tem Que Ceder" é uma comédia romântica para a 3ª idade. Longe de mim querer ser preconceituoso, mas este filme da diretora e roteirista Nancy Meyers ("Do Que As Mulheres Gostam") é uma produção que procura investir no romance entre duas pessoas já vividas que peca pela falta de maturidade.
Erica Barry (Diane Keaton) é uma famosa e conceituada escritora de 57 anos que desde a sua separação vive em função de sua carreira profissional. Extremamente controladora, ela procura ocupar-se de todas as formas possíveis para não pensar em sua solidão sentimental. Muito diferente do mulherengo Harry Sanborn (Jack Nicholson), 63 anos, dono de uma gravadora especializada em hip-hop, solteirão convicto e famoso por namorar…
Definitely a female fantasy story. I wish I had a beachfront house like that. I had no problem with the characters of huge age differences being attracted to each other. I just wondered what made Keaton's character so desirable and amazing to other people. She's rich, writes plays, and...? Nicholson is great. Some amusing sequences and a cute story of love after 55.
