Editors Note
Note In the sparkling comedy SOMETHING'S GOTTA GIVE directed by Nancy Meyers (WHAT WOMEN WANT), divorced, successful playwright Erica Barry (Diane Keaton) has given up on finding a fulfilling romantic relationship. When her beautiful young daughter Marin (Amanda Peet) visits the family's Hamptons home with her aging, lothario boyfriend Harry Sanborn (Jack Nicholson), Erica's plight as a mature, single woman comes into stark focus. Harry exclusively dates young women, which infuriates Erica. Though initially they repel each other, things change when Harry has a heart attack and Erica comes to his aid. The two make peace and discover a smoldering attraction to one another. However, love never comes without complications. Harry still has a romantic obligation to Marin, and Erica gets a taste of Harry's lifestyle when the sexy young doctor Julian (Keanu Reeves) hits on her. Whether Erica and Harry can reconcile their differences provides the premise for an elegant, touching, and amusing tale. In their first movie together since REDS, Keaton and Nicholson share natural chemistry, each giving powerful and moving performances under Meyers' expert direction.
Rolling Stone "...[Keaton] lands her sexiest, wittiest role in years....Something special..." 12/25/2003 p.118

New York Times "...Mr. Nicholson has the gentlemanly grace to step aside and let Ms. Keaton claim the movie. She in turn brings out the best in everyone around her." 12/12/2003 p.E1
Los Angeles Times "...[Meyers] has come up with both a fine hook and an expert cast to play it out." 12/12/2003 p.C1
USA Today "[I]t's one of the few good romantic comedies this year. What we gotta give is thanks." 12/12/2003 p.1E
Chicago Sun-Times "Nicholson's quasi-autobiographical role is one of the pleasures of the film." 12/12/2003 p.35
Sight and Sound "[I]t is Keaton who comes off the clear winner; she has the most complete character arc and she also gives the most consistently engaging performance." 03/01/2004 p.62
