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

But let's not mislead about acting gold: Without Nicholson and Keaton, the movie would be fair. With them, it's one of the few good romantic comedies this year. What we gotta give is thanks.

Chicago Sun-Times
[Keaton and Nicholson] bring so much experience, knowledge and humor to their characters that the film works in ways the screenplay might not have even hoped for.

Entertainment Weekly
Every moment spent in the company of Keaton... is such a joy that the whole is more delightful than the sum of the formulaic ingredients. Keaton makes Nicholson bounce the way Shirley MacLaine once did in ''Terms of Endearment.''

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

In an era of dumb farce, Something's Gotta Give is something special.

Philadelphia Inquirer
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.

Chicago Tribune
Doesn't always sizzle, but its stars do.

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

New York Daily News
It's hard to imagine anyone other than Keaton pulling this off.
