Something's Gotta Give [DVD] [2003]

Release Date:03/30/2004
Nancy Meyers' hit comedy Something's Gotta Give comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. English and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1. English, French, and Spanish subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a pair of commentary tracks. The first features Meyers with female lead Diane Keaton (who earned an Oscar nomination for her work in this film) and producer Bruce A. Block. Obviously, Meyers deeply appreciated Keaton's work on the film, and the track is long on good fun if short on much notable filmmaking information. The second track features Meyers and male lead Jack Nicholson. Their track is much like an episode of Inside the Actor's Studio. Meyers fawns over Nicholson, but Nicholson goes into a certain amount of detail about how he shapes a character, and how he concentrates on the nuances of his character. This is a rather intriguing commentary. A deleted scene in which Nicholson's character sings to Keaton's, a tour of the film's main set hosted by co-star Amanda Peet, and filmographies round out this solid DVD.

    Something's Gotta Give
    In keeping with the light and slick tones of her earlier film What Women Want, Nancy Meyers writes and directs the romantic comedy Something's Gotta Give. Jack Nicholson plays Harry Sanborn, a swinging sixtysomething entertainment executive surrounded by plenty of young girlfriends. His latest romance is young petite sophisticate Marin (Amanda Peet), who takes him to her mother's beach house in the Hamptons for a weekend fling. However, Marin's successful Broadway playwright mother Erica Barry (Diane Keaton) is already vacationing at the house with her sister Zoe (Frances McDormand). Marin and Harry stay anyway, and Harry ends up having a heart attack. He goes to the hospital and is looked after by thirtysomething doctor Julian Mercer (Keanu Reeves). Impressed by her writing, Dr. Mercer finds himself pursuing a romance with Erica. Because of his serious health condition, he orders Harry to stay near the hospital. While Marin returns to Manhattan, Erica agrees to stay on and look after Harry. Of course they are repulsed by each other at first, but they end up falling in love throughout the recovery process. Also starring Jon Favreau as Harry's assistant. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi
