Top Critic Reviews

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.

- Andrew Sarris, New York Observer, Thursday, January 8, 2004

Rotten: Something's Gotta Give is exactly the kind of 'adult' dreck that you'd expect to see on Broadway.

- Charles Taylor, Salon.com, Saturday, December 13, 2003

Fresh: While the film won't drive you delirious with suspense about where it's going, the journey is pleasant enough.

- Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Friday, December 12, 2003

As a playwright, I am offended by the vapid revenge play Diane Keaton's character, Erica Barry, a "successful playwright," writes. Personal issues aside, the characters lack any true motivation. They just play a game of romantic musical chairs. Oh Keanu Reeves. Just don't open your mouth, and you're fine.
