Something's Gotta Give
The trailers for Something's Gotta Give leave you with the impression that it will be just another Jack Nicholson flick. But it's not. Take Nicholson's recent tendency toward introspective roles about the nature of aging, add Diane Keaton's strong yet feminine presence (and she is every bit as much the star of this film as old Jack), and a smart script that is both truly funny and touching, and you get this film, a fresh look at the familiar romantic comedy genre. The chemistry between Keaton and Nicholson was undeniable and made for a great performance. Even more surprising was Keanu Reeves, who gave his most natural, convincing performance to date.
