The moments between the characters are absolutely full. It's a pleasure to watch such consummate professionals. full review
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. full review
A comedy of manners (and mannerisms) with two of the most mannered movie stars of our time, Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson, acting all over the place until you surrender with the ecstasy of pure pleasure.
Something's Gotta Give is exactly the kind of 'adult' dreck that you'd expect to see on Broadway.
In a rare -- if not entirely convincing -- bow to older audiences, Something's Gotta Give teams Nicholson with Diane Keaton in a romantic comedy that's funnier than it is trenchant.
The film Meyers has fashioned is generally quite amusing, with a brilliant cast.
Meyers's movie is too well done to call it anything but good entertainment.

Keaton nails every laugh and nuance in this tart, terrific romantic comedy.
Nicholson and Keaton do what they can to compensate for the script's weaknesses, which is actually quite a bit. Even without age-specific dialogue to help them out, they manage to suggest a strong connection between their characters. full review
It's about time the mature woman got the romantic upper hand, making Something's Gotta Give a long time coming. full review
While the film won't drive you delirious with suspense about where it's going, the journey is pleasant enough. full review
This contrived fantasy has a few funny moments, but the wish-fulfillment factor is its draw. full review
A well-felt celebration of romantic, emotional and physical maturity, filled with laughs and tears. It's also something of a revelation when it comes to Diane Keaton's range.
[Keaton and Nicholson] bring so much experience, knowledge and humor to their characters that the film works in ways the screenplay might not have even hoped for. full review
Doesn't America's 50-and-fabulous set deserve better than a movie this superficial and pandering? full review
