Been there, done that
Have you ever seen one of those made for TV movies that you can watch any evening on the Lifetime channel or CBS, that chronicles the romantic pursuits of upper middle class white suburbanite women, divorced and/or widowed, where dialogue is sappy, the scenes are time consuming and uneventful, there is no moral or dramatic weight to anything that goes on, and the action is immediately forgettable?

"Somethings Gotta Give" is like one of those movies, the only, and I mean ONLY difference is pedigree of the talent, and the presentation of that aforementioned talent's bare skin. Remove or interchange those factors and this movie would go straight to cable TV. It's that mediocre.

All the hyperbole about Jack Nicholson playing an aging stud who is very much like his real-life persona is irrelevant. If you want to get the scoop on that story, read People magazine. His whole presentation was disorienting to me; I am used to seeing him ooze fake sincerity; in this film it is real sincerity, and I wasn't buying it.

I also found it hard to find any sort of sympathy for a crowd of people who are blessed with good looks, personality, wealth, oceanfront homes, apartments "in the city," laptops, spacious kitchens, fashionable clothes. Is there a single character in this movie who does not carry a cell phone? The cell phone addiction in this movie is so annoying I wanted to take all those cell phones and throw them in the ocean.

Jack Nicholson is a true treasure of American film. "About Schmidt" added to his legend. "Somethings Gotta Give" subtracts from it. He has strayed a long way from Randall McMurphy and Jake Gittes, would have eaten this guy alive.
