Harry Sanborn (Jack Nicholson) is a perennial playboy with a libido much younger than his years. During what was to have been a romantic weekend with his latest infatuation, Marin (Amanda Peet), at her mother's Hamptons beach house, Harry develops chest pains. He winds up being nursed by Marin's reluctant mother Erica Barry (Diane Keaton), a successful, divorced New York playwright. In the process, Harry develops more heart pangs -- the romantic kind -- for Erica, an age-appropriate woman whom he finds beguiling. However, some habits die hard. When Harry hesitates, his charming thirtysomething doctor (Keanu Reeves) steps in and starts to pursue Erica. And Harry, who has always had the world on a string, finds his life unraveling.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Keaton nails every laugh and nuance in this tart, terrific romantic comedy.
Rotten: Something's Gotta Give is exactly the kind of 'adult' dreck that you'd expect to see on Broadway.
Fresh: The moments between the characters are absolutely full. It's a pleasure to watch such consummate professionals.
Fresh: Ms. Keaton projects her wondrously warm personality, and the erstwhile Jake Gittes keeps us entertained with a sense of irony that keeps things from getting too sticky.
...not only between Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton, as someone pointed out -- but also, and as important, in the cinematographic choices for the movie. the french settings have a flair of charm, a 'je-ne-sais-quoi' about them that come off as a breath of fresh chair in this well-ventured genre.
Memorable romantic comedy
This film is so cute and so entertaining I have seen it twice, and whenever I see it on TV, I try and watch it again. The chemistry between Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton is very good. Diane Keaton certainly deserved her Oscar nomination for the role she played. The film never gets old. I still can't believe it's been five years (2008) since this movie came out! I highly recommend this film not only to Diane Keaton fans, but fans of light-hearted romantic fare that will make you laugh and maybe even cry.
this is my absolute favorite movie. diane and jack did an amazing job making this movie funny, romantic and light at the same time. great enough to watch on a rainy day by yourself or with someone else. DEFINATELY WORTH IT!!
