Consensus: Though it occasionally stumbles into sitcom territory, Something's Gotta Give is mostly a smart, funny romantic comedy, with sharp performances from Jack Nicholson, Diane Keaton, and Keanu Reeves.

The moments between the characters are absolutely full. It's a pleasure to watch such consummate professionals.

The movie itself reveals nothing, but it's entertaining.

London Evening Standard

It pays homage to the great pulse of warmth still, 27 years later, being given off by Annie Hall, and Keaton basks in the attention. You can hear the beat of her triumphant heart.

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.

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

Rex Reed
New York Observer

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.

Robert Denerstein
Denver Rocky Mountain News

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.

Nell Minow
Common Sense Media

Delightful comedy, older teens and parents only.

Jack Nicholson is a phonoemenal actor and he was so funny and entertaining in this movie and so was Diane Keaton. One of my favorite parts was when Nicholson… More
