Something's Gotta Give (2003)

Something's Gotta Give (2003)

Think ocean breezes and long walks on the beach, and you'll have the setting for this romantic comedy. Uptight yet likable Erica (Diane Keaton) has given up on romantic relationships. But when she finds a half-dressed Harry (Jack Nicholson) in her kitchen, things change. Harry, the chauvinistic womanizer (who dates only 20-year-olds) is visiting Erica's Hamptons retreat for a weekend romp with her 20-something daughter. Harry explains during dinner, "Some say I'm an expert on the younger woman ... since I've been dating them for 40 years." While attempting to impress the young daughter with his prowess, Harry has a heart attack. Erica begrudgingly comes to his aid, and the slow chemistry begins: Do opposites really attract? Powerfully moving performances and tons of one-liners make you laugh out loud and ponder fate and relationships. ―Mamie Walling
