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.
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.
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.
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.
I must have got the unfinished cut of this film because Diane ends up with Jack Nicholson and not Keanu. Super weird.
Keaton's overacting should come with a disclaimer.
This was a very enjoyable film. Nicholson and Keaton have a great chemistry together, and I loved their romantic scenes together.
Nicholson really made me laugh here, such as when he realized he was the guy in Keaton's latest play or when he bombarded the hospital staff with medical jargon when brought to the ER for the third time.
Keaton was a delight as well, particularly in the bedroom scenes when she overflowed with happiness.
Perhaps there was too much "lovers apart" in this film, but overall the positives outweighed the negatives.
I find I generally like Nancy Meyers' films. Perhaps it was Keaton's presence here, but this one seemed to have one eye on Woody Allen's work.
Netter schöner Film
Keanu is so freaking handsome in this.
Tonally schizophrenic, but Keaton's a diamond.
I NEVER GET TIRED OF THIS MOVIE!!! But one thing I noticed this time: what a fantastic score (by Hans Zimmer) and soundtrack
A rom com that pulls it together with fantastic characters. Typical Nancy Meyers
