Something's Gotta Give (2003) Poster

Trivia

Twentieth Century Fox declined making the film citing that the leads were too old.
In this 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 around: Nicholson is a divorcée, while Keaton is a bachelorette.
Nancy Meyers wrote the roles of Erica and Harry specifically for Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson.
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 in Looking for Mr. Goodbar (1977).
Jack Nicholson turned down starring in Bad Santa (2003) to be in this movie.
When Erica kisses Harry in the scenes outside the restaurant in New York City, it was an improvisation by Diane Keaton. Writer and Director Nancy Meyers liked it so much, that she decided to use it in the final cut of the movie.
The title of the movie is from a 1954 song written by Johnny Mercer, namesake of Keanu Reeves' character Julian Mercer.
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.
When instant messaging Erica (Diane Keaton), Harry's (Jack Nicholson) screenname is "HARRY37". Jack Nicholson was born in 1937.
The 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 first trailer included footage of Harry and a gorgeous woman walking through a restaurant comparing his life with those sitting there.

After Harry is forced to move into her beach house following his heart attack, Erica complains that she has become "a character in a Kaufman and Hart play!" This is a reference to The Man Who Came to Dinner (1942), a play by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, in which an obnoxious house guest, Sheridan Whiteside, is forced to move into a family home after breaking his hip, and drives his hosts crazy with his outrageous demands.
