Something's Gotta Give (2003) Poster


Twentieth Century Fox declined making the film citing that the leads were too old.
In the movie Jack Nicholson plays a notorious bachelor, who always: "escaped the noose", while Diane Keaton plays a divorcée. In real life it's the other way round. Jack Nicholson is divorced while Diane Keaton never married.
First (albeit brief) full frontal nudity scene for Diane Keaton. Although highly publicized as her first actual nude scene, in fact, she first appeared topless 26 years earlier in Looking for Mr. Goodbar (1977).
Nancy Meyers wrote the roles of Erica and Harry specifically for Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson.
Jack Nicholson turned down starring in Bad Santa (2003) to be in this movie.
When instant messaging Erica (Diane Keaton), Harry's (Jack Nicholson) screenname is "HARRY37". Jack Nicholson was born in 1937.
The title of the movie is from a 1954 song written by Johnny Mercer, namesake of Keanu Reeves' character Julian Mercer.
DVD includes a deleted scene where Harry sings "La Vie En Rose" for Erica in a karaoke bar. Part of this scene (Harry and Erica dancing) was in one of the trailers. Jack Nicholson sings the same song during the end credits.
The American poster for this film featured large pictures of Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton. In Japan, the poster also included a large picture of Keanu Reeves, presumably because of his popularity there at the time.
With this film, Sony became the first studio to release nine films that opened at #1 at the box office in a single year. They broke the record in 2006, with the release of Gridiron Gang (2006).
The first trailer included footage of Harry and a gorgeous woman walking through a restaurant comparing his life with those sitting there.
Composer Alan Silvestri wrote an original score for the film, but was replaced by Hans Zimmer after creative differences with Director Nancy Meyers.
