    The film also does something quite remarkable for an American film: It makes middle-age love look sexy and hugely satisfying. show more

    Diane Keaton has the crucial role, and she makes the most of it.

    With the likes of Nicholson, Keaton, Reeves and Peet -- and a fleeting, funny few minutes with McDormand -- Something's Gotta Give is never less than entertaining. And once in a while it's sweetly, and extremely, funny. show more
